Lean & Six-Sigma:Tools for Audit Planning & Execution “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” Peter Drucker
We’ll get the audit done sometime this century.
Measure what? Audits can be measured.
Six-Sigma? Does that mean we have to be 99.999999% perfect? Lean, an evolving element of Kaizen, is the most efficient and effective approach of delivering manufactured products to customers in the last 20 years. More companies are finding the value of Lean not only as a quality improvement approach but also to reduce costs and improve productivity. Lean is now being practiced with great efficiencies in business and office practices, healthcare and software development. Businesses that have implemented Lean & Six-Sigma have increased Productivity by 30% to 120% and improved Quality by 50% to 60%. Six-Sigma is a methodology of measurements, derived from Kaizen and Lean, which focuses on process improvement and reduction in variation. These reductions improve the quality through the identification and elimination of defects. This session exposes participants to Kaizen, Lean and basic Six Sigma tools that can be used during the planning and execution phase of audits. The results enhance audit effectiveness, result in improved business performance, and the elimination of waste and confusion. The session uses case studies and exercises to prove the utilization of Lean & Six-Sigma in audits.
