Research on Lean Six Sigma

There are many peered reviewed articles on Lean Six Sigma and also many practitioner publications. The principals of Lean Sigma Institute have been active in academic research over the last decade and have published papers in peer reviewed journals. The essence of our research is to identify factors that are critical to the successful deployment of Lean Six Sigma.

Some recent publications are:

Factors critical to success of a sixsigma quality program in an Australian Hospital, Total Quality Management & Business Excellence, Vol. 19, 1, 2008

Critical factors for the successful deployment of the DMAIC methodology in an Australian Hospital are derived and tested for significance. Open communication from the leadership team down to departments and displaying KPI's at Nurses work stations are amongst the important factors.

A conceptual model for the successful deployment of Lean Six Sigma, International Journal of Quality and Reliability Management, Vol. 29, No.1, 2012

The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between the successful deployment of Lean Six Sigma and a number of key explanatory variables that essentially comprise the competence of the organization, the competence of the deployment facilitator and the competence of the project leaders. The model has been tested against the Australian Experience and is expected to be published in 2013.
