Achieving performance excellence is not a goal that must be achieved only once but is a cyclical process of continuous improvement. After all, we live in an age of exponential change, wherein the threat of stagnation is ever-present, and the road to success is forged through constant innovation.
To avoid stagnation and pave our way toward the future, we have to identify the improvement potential in our processes on a daily basis. Organizations need to constantly strive for perfection in the way we work. This is the mindset of continuous improvement that is central to both the Baldrige Excellence Framework and the Lean Six Sigma methodology.
What sets Lean Six Sigma apart from comparable methodologies is its exceptionally broad applicability. Essentially, it can be used to improve any process that can be repeated. As such, it isn’t limited to manufacturing but can also be applied to virtually any process within the service industry as well. Whether it is improving the speed and efficiency of an assembly line process or providing customer service, Lean Six Sigma can be applied to make an improvement.
A CULTURE OF CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
While Lean Six Sigma offers tried-and-true techniques and project methods, its greatest strengths are creating insight and structure. The methodology creates clarity on how work is performed while locating where inefficiencies lie. Not just for a select layer in the organization but for all employees involved. Work is structured in such a way that solving issues and making improvements become a daily routine. And because routines create habits and habits influence culture, Lean Six Sigma essentially fosters a culture of responsibility.
