The Profitability of Lean Six Sigma: A Study of National Grain Producers Inc. describes the different actions taken by NGP to take advantage of Lean Six Sigma and increase the company’s profitability. These actions are reviewed as investments to aid in assessing how beneficial they have been. This approach helps to quickly determine if what has been done within NGP so far as part of Lean Six Sigma has been successful which helps in deciding whether or not to continue the use of the LSS system.
