Large Lecture Theatre,
MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit,
Chaucer Road, Cambridge, CB2 7EF

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Lean Six Sigma

Martin Gibson
Formerly EMC Europe, Director of Lean Six Sigma

Abstract: Over the last two decades "Six Sigma" has become a global phenomenon with many claims about its success. "Lean" has also become another improvement methodology which originated from Toyota. Many organisations have a preference of one methodology over the other with some trying to embrace both in a merged "Lean Six Sigma" programme.
Six Sigma uses a structured format (DMAIC) to achieve variation reduction while Lean focuses on reducing waste. Certainly any organisation will achieve localised improvements through Lean Six Sigma but what exactly is required to bring organisational improvement especially in these hard economic times?
Through working in process improvement and systems thinking over the last 20 years, I will go through some personal experiences of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Lean Six Sigma", and finish with what must be done to if organisations are to succeed.


Speaker: Martin has worked extensively in applying statistical and systems thinking in transforming traditional quality methods into measurable process improvements in the Automotive (OEM & Suppliers), Electronics, IT, Medical Devices, Oil, Paper, Telecommunications and Whisky sectors. He is a Chartered Statistician, Chartered Scientist and certified Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt with over 20 years experience of applying continual improvement across organisations.
Martin has contributed papers to the TQM World Congress Series on Quality Planning, Statistics and Reliability and has been an invited speaker to South Yorkshire Excellence, Royal Statistical Society, Institute of Electrical Engineers, Institute of Physics and The Deming Forum, on Process Improvement, Quality, Six Sigma and Design of Experiments. Martin's specific areas of expertise include Systems Thinking, Change Management, Lean Six Sigma, Process Improvement, Advanced Quality Planning and Robustness.

Annual General Meeting:  Martin's talk will be preceded by a brief Annual General Meeting.
Directions Chaucer Road is off Trumpington Road - if you are heading away from the city centre it is the first right after the junction with Brooklands Avenue. Number 15 is at the end on the left and is a large Victorian House with a more modern extension to its right. The entrance is in the porch located in the middle of the older section on the left as you come in and is accessed by ascending a few steps from the car park. Cars may be parked there.  The outside door will be locked at 7:45.
