Due to COVID 19 programs in the near future will be presented online.  Since we cannot collect checks "at the meeting" we require you to register with a credit card until such time as we can meet in person and accept checks online. Once we have in-person meetings again we will re-enable the billing option.  Please coordinate with your company to provide a credit card to register for a meeting, or contact our treasurer to arrange payment prior to the meeting.  Unregistered/Unpaid users will not be given the meeting password or details: treasurer@gvcshrm.org

Lean Six Sigma: A business efficiency method that relies on collaborative team efforts to improve performance. It employs a combination of strategic and operations management practices, and data analytics/statistics. It is intended to eliminate waste, and improve the quality of process outputs by identifying, and removing the causes of defects, and minimizing variability. It contains the underlying principles that drive the ‘DMAIC’ problem solving process.

Why Companies use Lean Six Sigma:

Increase Profitability – Drive Shareholder Value

Improve the Customer Experience

Competitive Differentiator

Drive Innovation

Leadership Development

Culture Transformation

Lean Concepts are…

A way to understand value from the viewpoint of the customer and eliminate waste — activities that don’t add value

Value Added and Non Value-Added:

Value-Added Step

• Customers are willing to pay for it.

• It physically changes the product.

• It’s done right the first time.

Non Value-Added Step

• Is not essential to produce output.

• Does not add value to the output.

• Typically, less than 5% of the time it takes to complete a task is value-adding


6-Sigma is…

• A rigorous performance improvement approach based on quality.

• A customer-focused, data driven approach to understanding process variation (stability) and defect reduction (capability).

• Heavy reliance on process modeling, consistent data collection, and statistics.

• Identifies differences in accuracy; did you hit what you were aiming at, vs. precision; did the shots land together (identifying root cause).

• A performance target of 3.4 defects per million opportunities


Provide information to certify all present (who submit and pass the online test[open book]) with LSS Yellow Belt.


By the end of this session, participants will:

Be able to describe what LSS is, & where it came from.

Be able to explain why organizations deploy Lean Six Sigma (LSS).

Be able to articulate the basic idea/principles behind LSS.

Be able to describe the DMAIC process, and why it works.
