Lean Six Sigma is Too Big for Us and Other Popular Lies

Ever since I started teaching and coaching in Lean Six Sigma the first and the most common objection was that this methodology is just TOO BIG for a small or medium size company. It is for big companies only.

If you just pick up a book at Amazon or in your local book store about this subject, it is no doubt; you will get discouraged to start with UNLESS you are good at Applied Statistics.

…and that a shame.

I spent 5 weeks in classroom and even with my engineering and MBA degree, I had no easy time studying Lean Six Sigma stuff – if you take the “industry standard” theoretical material.

But Lean Six Sigma does not have to be that difficult!

During my practice, I was working in a company where Lean Six Sigma was the way the people solved their day-to-day problems. Interestingly, they have only used some basic tools and still this company had a major turn-around both in their culture and in their financial position.

Here is the story of this small company:

This inspired me to make my own version of the methodology where:

–          You do not need high educational level. Everybody in your company should be able to use the method.

–          Whether you want to reduce process time or increase quality, you still follow exactly the same stages during problem-solving.

–          No big upfront investment required for statistical software. You can use MS Excel.

–          I have cut down the theory by 75% so you spend 75% more time working on real project instead of sitting in a boring classroom.

My method is applied in small maintenance company with less than 30 employees or at a furniture manufacturer with about 80 employees. They are now running multitudes of projects in order to simplify processes and reduce mistakes and defects.
