Lean Six Sigma principles of business management are making nothing but positive impacts on our pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Lean Six Sigma was developed by combining Motorola’s original Six Sigma business management strategy with Taiichi Ohno’s “lean” philosophy first utilized in the Toyota Production System. The two ideologies share similar goals of reducing process variation and eliminating waste, and when combined form the optimum approach to business management.

Due to its origins, Lean Six Sigma was originally applied to the manufacturing industry, aiding in improved system design for companies such as General Electric. Over time, however, it has become clear that the benefits of Lean Six Sigma are applicable in many industries beyond manufacturing.

The seamless transition of Lean Six Sigma from manufacturing to pharmaceutical and biotech industries can be contributed to parallel needs.

Lean Six Sigma provides substantial results within pharma, biotech, and medical device organizations by increasing efficiency, cutting costs, and improving process steps, while trimming waste without sacrificing quality. Avoiding errors and reducing consumer risks are the two most significant benefits of adopting Lean Six Sigma into your business.

The quality of your products is directly related to success.  Consumer satisfaction is what keeps you in business. Lean Six Sigma allows you to protect your consumers while improving efficiencies.

If your approach to business doesn’t protect your customers then how do you measure your success?
