What is the Difference Between Lean and Six Sigma?

Lean is a proven way to eliminate waste that can be applied in any environment to deliver significant results in a quick timeframe.  Lean is defined as systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste through continuous improvement by flowing the product or service at the pull of the customer. The key is to focus on the activities that add value to what the customer is expecting.

Six Sigma is a set of management tools and techniques designed to improve the capability of the business process by reducing the likelihood of error.  The Six Sigma approach is systematic and utilizes these five key principles for sustainable performance improvement: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control.
