This is an important set of concepts to help you run a profitable business. Six Sigma is a sysem of mathematical models that tell you where errors are. After WWII, Deming went to Japan to help get their industry moving again – the system developed was called TQM: Total Quality Management. Since the Japanese were now building better products than the Americans, Six Sigma was developed by Motorola as a way of understanding the errors in production. Lean is about doing more with less by reducing inefficient processes. It’s the Toyota production method that has produced one of the most reliable cars on the road.
