  • Avoid the common pitfalls of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) initiatives and ensure all aspects of your organisation’s behaviour and culture are carefully considered
  • Combine LSS tools and techniques with a blend of programme and change management techniques
  • Implement training and capability development to ensure the development of a continuous process improvement culture
  • Get started with a range of options from a pilot improvement project to an organisation wide process transformation programme.
  • Plus, hear how one financial services organisation benefited firsthand from the “game changing” results of this powerful approach.
