Six Sigma is often mentioned in one sentence with Lean. Originally, Lean and Six Sigma were two different process improvement methodologies. Today, friend and foe agree that Lean and Six Sigma are complementary to each other.

Quality, variation, and defects are clearly Six Sigma factors. Speed and process flow are clear Lean elements.
