Lean Six Sigma is a statistical method to assist companies in improving efficiency and eliminating waste in its processes, giving those businesses new methods for defining, measuring, analyzing and controlling their operations and financials. On average, companies that have implemented Lean Six Sigma processes have improved their bottom lines by $500,000 to $1 million.
