Through many cycles of learning and continuous improvement, Develop Consulting truly believes that although complimentary, Lean and Six Sigma methodologies have differing outputs and focus.
Lean is typically a cultural engagement and a transformational approach while Six Sigma is very much a sophisticated analytical tool.
But the questions remain:
Do you understand the problems facing your business today?
Do you know why you need a Lean or Six Sigma strategy in your business?
Do you realize the benefits of implementing Lean or Six Sigma methodologies?
Our purpose is to help you find the right Lean Six Sigma training class that will deliver the biggest impact for you and your organization.

Lean Coaching & Support:
Our coaching and support primarily focuses on looking for solutions rather than looking back to the past. We believe our skill is to reframe the story to be solvable. We use an integrated goal focused model that encourages collaboration between the individual and the coach.
Face to face or remote support
Rapid Improvement Events
Duration – 2 to 5 days
Rapid Improvement Events (RIE) are about taking the existing baseline and improving it. It starts with walking the entire process, we call it “going to Gemba”, which is Japanese for going to see how the work is done. You would be surprised when a group of people comes together to describe how a process works, and they all have different perspectives on the same process.
The RIE takes place in your chosen area with key members of staff plus a few additional people from supporting areas, and management.
