The next step in the evolution of the organizational quality field, Lean Six Sigma (LSS) has come of age. However, many challenges to using LSS in lieu of, in conjunction with, or integrated with other quality initiatives remain. An update on the current focus of quality management, Quality Management for Organizations Using Lean Six Sigma Techniques covers the concepts and principles of Lean Six Sigma and its origins in quality, total quality management (TQM), and statistical process control (SPC), and then explores how it can be integrated into manufacturing, logistics, and healthcare operations. The book presents the background on quality and Lean Six Sigma (LSS) techniques and tools, previous history of LSS in manufacturing, and current applications of LSS in operations such as logistics and healthcare. It provides a decision model for choosing whether to use LSS or other quality initiatives, which projects should be selected and prioritized, and what to do with non-LSS projects. The author also details an integration model for integrating and developing integrated LSS and other quality initiatives, and common mathematical techniques that you can use for performing LSS statistical calculations. He describes methods to attain the different Six Sigma certifications, and closes with discussion of future directions of Lean Six Sigma and quality. Case studies illustrate the integration of LSS principles into other quality initiatives, highlighting best practices as well as successful and failed integrations. This guide gives you a balanced description of the good, bad, and ugly in integrating LSS into modern operations, giving you the understanding necessary to immediately apply the concepts to your quality processes.

The main purpose of this paper is to compare and discuss the evolution of six important management systems: Japanese Total Quality Control (JTQC), Total Quality Management (TQM), Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge, Business Process Reengineering (BPR), Lean Thinking and Six Sigma. Indeed the contribution of this work lies in the concurrent analysis and classification, by the means of a literature review, of the results and critical implementation factors of the six systems. Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) has been used to classify the findings from the literature review.

Changing with Lean Six Sigma is different from the rest of the milieu in that it focuses more on how to change for the better using Lean Six Sigma as a tool rather than doing Lean Six Sigma for a change. It presents a unique and user-friendly description of the Lean Six Sigma methodology that cuts through all the lingo. The author points out to the fundamental questions organizations need to answer and deep diving into the structure needed to support a Lean Six Sigma change initiative, sharing a top consultant's often deeply held secrets on critical items needed to changing a company into a performing lean six sigma organization. Changing with Lean Six Sigma does not advocate Lean Six Sigma as a panacea for all business problems. It tells you where you can apply it and where not. The author also describes the various aspects of change that need to be managed during the initiative and the resultant benefits to the organization and to the individual change agents and champions. Illustrated with graphics that capture the essence of critical topics, Changing with Lean Six Sigma is imaginative as well as thought provoking. Written for senior executives who would want to know the basics of a Lean Six Sigma initiative and for executives responsible for operations, maintenance and service processes to know what to plan for before embarking on such an initiative. This book is also for the supervisors, mangers and a broad spectrum of corporate and entrepreneurial innovators who would be the change agents in a Lean Six Sigma initiative in the role of a Sponsor, Champion, Black Belt or Green Belt. Aruleswaran prepares the reader to embark on an effective Lean Six Sigma program through inductions on the philosophies, methodology and differences between going through the motions with Lean Six Sigma, and attempting to change a business in the usual way. This book is a must read for change agents, business leaders, and lean six sigma process experts.
