About This Discussion:

Process improvement professionals and teams gravitate to the improvement methodology in which they were trained and have experience. However, no one approach is optimal for all problems. In a fast paced presentation, Mike discusses summarizes how Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints and other methods work, the strengths and weaknesses of each, a few brief cases studies, and his decision making process for choosing which to use in any project.
