Abstract

In some business scenarios, full-scale lean Six Sigma training isn’t always necessary to dissect and solve problems. Smaller projects often can be shortened and handled using a select number of quality tools. In some instances, that means overtraining teams can be avoided. This agile approach to lean Six Sigma can save on training costs. More complicated, cross-functional problems within an organization may require more advanced training for teams, but many problems can be tackled more quickly by those with less training.
