What is Six Sigma?

Six Sigma is a management methodology meant to drive process improvements in the organization through quantitative approach. Six Sigma has kept its edge while some other management approaches are in perishable stage or already perished due to following reasons:

  1. The quantitative analytics – that we cannot remove from the business environment
  2. There is no other tangible benefits apart from the actual improvement which the organization realizes during the Six Sigma journey.

Reaching pinnacles of business success is fostered not only by clear business strategies but also helping to ensuring that such strategies are effectively implemented.


In the current economic scenario where as a country we are looking at continuous economic growth during next few years, it is very important that we do not fall from the existing position. One of the important aspects required for that is to increase the quantum of quantitative decisions and thus increasing the authenticity and intent of the decision.


In today's business environment there is a lot of focus on business strategy formulation, but there seems to be lack in the strategy execution model. As a result some excellent business strategies fail.


KPMG facilitates the process of effectively implementing the strategies through methodical improvement programs such as the Lean Six Sigma Performance Improvement framework (LSSPI) - that is used to help organizations link their business imperatives to departmental deliverables. LSSPI uses this methodology to further align departmental objectives to process improvement projects.

What is KPMG's LSSPI?

KPMG’s LSSPI is the strategy for partnering with the organization in creating process improvement processes to deliver the organization goals, primarily the financial goals. It is amalgamation of Lean and Six Sigma concepts.


We believe that we can partner with the organization in this regard and facilitate the organization to meet the growth plan.

What is Lean?

LEAN is about the optimization of the process with respect to cost, resources and time. This model is adequately and efficiently integrated with Six Sigma as it is very important to quantify the system before making it LEAN. Quantification is done based on the Six Sigma frame work.
