How to Make a Lean Six Sigma Deployment Plan Sustainable

Watch the full interview:

We need to start thinking about sustainability early. It sounds like a natural because we are doing Lean and Lean is by definition — Lean should be a sustainability piece. It is how do you standardize work or how do you get everybody understanding exactly and what is important to the organization. How do you minimize the amount of non-value added stuff going on. But it is one thing to say it and it’s another thing to do it, right? And so we are working to make sure that when we say something that sticks, when we understand how to run a line differently that those things are understood and stay understood so we don’t come back three years from now saying, “You know, the things have run better but it doesn’t run better anymore.”
