Lean targets waste. All organisations would like to get rid of waste. If you’re the person who can do that, you’ll be highly valued.

2. Improve quality and efficiency


By utilising lean and six sigma tools, you’ll determine how to improve how things work in each area of the business. You’ll also contribute to implementing safeguards against defects and mistakes in a process, thereby improving the quality level and efficient running of the business.
