An enhancement of lean Six Sigma principles is provided in the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) Business Management System.
A lean Six Sigma training, certification, consulting and deployment system needs to benefit the organization as a whole. However, often lean Six Sigma deployments encourage silo thinking, where the business’ big picture does not benefit.
A traditional lean Six Sigma principles deployment may report a savings of 100 million dollars but no body can find the money. This is a major shortcoming of a traditional lean Six Sigma principles deployment. To address this issue, improvement projects need to address the improvement of key performance indices (KPIs) that benefit the enterprise as a whole as described in the one-minute video:
An Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) lean Six Sigma deployment addresses this issue so silo projects that have minimal/no enterprise benefit.

Our training gives focus so that the organizational big-picture benefits.
Our training incorporates the concepts and references during the training five book; i.e., the training is more than a deck of slides.
Lean Six Sigma Principles Training, Certification, Consulting And Deployment: About Smarter Solutions’ Training
- Smarter Solutions has been refining its Lean Six Sigma training material since 1992. The training materials used in each course are derived from years of Lean Six Sigma experience so that the student not only learns the Body of Knowledge topics, but also fully appreciates how to wisely apply the tools in real-life situations.
- The Lean Six Sigma courses are not fragmented into different courses for multiple business situations. The courses are created to integrate all types of business examples so that the students understand how to use the concepts both within and outside of the student’s current work assignment, because who stays at the same job for a career.
- Comprehensive Reference books are provided with every course. The courses provide detailed references to the text book, the project workbook, and to the course notes. This eliminates the need to take detailed notes for future references; you will complete the courses with a published book that contains the entire course concepts and more!
- Most Lean Six Sigma courses are provided as both an internal course to support a deployment of the Lean Six Sigma methodology or as a open class for students without an internal training program. The core Lean Six Sigma training courses are also provided in a self-paced blended online training version that integrates the same reference materials as the instructor led courses along with extensive one-on-one coaching through the course and certification.
- The Lean Six Sigma courses are provided to individuals to solve specific problems or part of a corporate deployment of Lean Six Sigma or an Enterprise Business System deployment.
- The primary belt courses include coaching and certification into the base price of the course.
- Statistical analysis techniques are taught using Minitab Software.
