Lean Six Sigma unites tools and techniques from Lean and Six Sigma methodologies to produce real results. It uncovers process waste, reduces non-value adding activity, and increases organizational capability. The benefits might even be felt in IT where waste is being removed from application development processes, significantly reducing costs and freeing resources and budgets for needed investments and backlogged projects. Business Process Management (BPM) technologies and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) combine with Lean Six Sigma to accelerate improvements and results. At the same time, they increase organizational agility and technology-enabled responsiveness.
