LEAN SIX SIGMA TRAINING GUIDES
Flevy is the leading provider of premium business documents. Our documents are of the same caliber as those produced by top tier consulting firms, like McKinsey, Bain, Accenture, BCG, and Deloitte. Most of our documents were developed by seasoned executives and consultants with 20+ years of experience.

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a set of management methodologies and business frameworks based on the thinking of a collaborative team effort to improve business performance by systematically removing non-value add activities (i.e. "waste"). Lean Six Sigma, as the name implies, combines the management philosophies of Lean Management (also known as Lean Manufacturing and Lean Enterprise) and Six Sigma to eliminate the 8 types of waste: Over-production, Waiting, Rework, Transportation, Inventory, Motion, Over-processing, and Intellect.

At Flevy, we have numerous LSS business training guides. These documents have been developed by consulting firms specializing in Lean Six Sigma and Operational Excellence. On this page, our team has handpicked a number of these guides, organized into the following 5 sections (see tab names).
