Quality Trend 5 - Lean Management will become more important to organizations seeking continuous improvement than Six Sigma

Six Sigma has been the dominant force for organizations seeking improvement in the management of their key business processes. Most have already reaped the benefits of Six Sigma. Continuous improvement of key business processes will be more easily realized through the principles of Lean.

Organizations will identify that the time and cost required to continue to support Six Sigma will be more than the value produced. Lean is less expensive, easier to implement and delivers immediate, measurable improvement.
