Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that aims to improve business processes by reducing waste, minimizing defects, and increasing efficiency. It combines two powerful process improvement methodologies – Lean and Six Sigma – to create a comprehensive approach to process improvement.

Lean focuses on eliminating waste and increasing efficiency.

Six Sigma focuses on reducing defects and improving quality.

Together, they create a powerful tool for businesses seeking to improve their operations and drive bottom-line results. The Lean Six Sigma methodology is data-driven, meaning that it relies on data analysis to identify areas for improvement and measure the impact of process changes. By reducing waste, improving quality, and increasing efficiency, Lean Six Sigma helps businesses to reduce costs, increase customer satisfaction, and stay competitive in today’s fast-paced business environment.

It Starts With Culture:

Increased Efficiency

A culture of continuous improvement encourages employees to look for ways to streamline processes, reduce waste, and increase efficiency. This can lead to significant cost savings and increased productivity.

Competitive Advantage

Businesses that are constantly improving their processes and products are more likely to stay ahead of their competitors and maintain their position in the marketplace.


A culture of continuous improvement encourages employees to think creatively and come up with new ideas. This can lead to innovation and the development of new products, services, or business models.

Employee Engagement

When employees are encouraged to participate in continuous improvement efforts, they feel valued and engaged in the success of the business.

Improved Quality

By continuously improving processes, businesses can improve the quality of their products or services, which can lead to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.


Overall, a culture of continuous improvement is essential for businesses that want to stay competitive and adapt to changing market conditions. By encouraging employees to continuously improve processes, products, and services, businesses can drive innovation, improve quality, increase efficiency, and maintain a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced business environment.

Working With Value

Added 616 is Easy

Value Added 616, Inc. delivers a proven VALUE™ problem-solving process, leaving your company streamlined and ready to serve more clients.

97-Day Lean Transformation Kickoff

Value Added 616 begins the process with a free 1-2 hour consultation. Using our Strategic Execution Model™ as the framework for the facilitated discussion, we focus on your organization’s mission, vision, purpose, goals, and core processes. The Strategic Execution Model™ assists in identifying the right projects for execution and ensuring they receive the right resources, and right timing to maximize their end-to-end enterprise impact. Critical outcomes: (a) identify core processes, (b) validate pain points, and (c) identify opportunities for improvement. This phase can take as little as two hours if we have available data on the core processes, or it could take up to two days while we connect with the data analytics team.

Value Added 616 deploys assessments based on the initial consultation: (a) Cultural Impact Assessment™, and (b) Data Culture Assessment™. The Cultural Impact Assessment™ and Data Culture Assessment™ help identify and highlight critical gaps. They also validate (or develop) organizational Objective and Key Results (OKRs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Critical outcome: completed strategic plan for the lean transformation. This phase normally takes one week, depending on the availability of resources at your organization.

Value Added 616 and our new teammates within your organization work together on this next phase. Together we launch the custom implementation plan that addresses the combined assessments and critical gaps. Critical outcomes: (a) quick wins, and (b) buy-in from all major stakeholders. The first quick wins are normally completed within six weeks of launch.

Upon completion of the first round of quick wins improved processes need to be standardized, repeatable, and reproducible. Value Added 616 ensures all projects have (at a minimum) standard work instructions, standard operating procedures, and a current state process map as part of the completed documentation. Critical outcomes: (a) standard work, (b) proper documentation, (c) a centralized knowledge management repository, and (d) custom dashboards and visual displays. This process normally takes about two weeks.
Value Added 616 begins this step with a Cultural Impact (re)Assessment™ to confirm significant positive impact. We compile and analyze project and other relevant data, validate OKRs, KPIs, and process metrics. Finally, Value Added 616 validates results based on agreed upon goals, impact on bottom line, employee satisfaction, and most importantly customer satisfaction. Critical outcomes: (a) hard savings metrics, (b) soft cost metrics, (c) intangible goals met, and (d) updates to the strategic implementation plan. Collectively this final step takes about four weeks to accomplish. And then we start with the next phase on the strategic plan for our lean transformation and keep pressing forward!
