Methods of the Lean Six Sigma
An accomplished New York-based businessman, John N. Kastanis leads JNK Consulting, a consulting firm designed to share his over 25 years of experience in the healthcare industry. During his career, John N. Kastanis has applied Lean Six Sigma (LSS) methodologies to improve the patient experience, which culminated in successfully revitalizing six organizations by expanding 2 to 4 percent of their annual profit margin.

The combination of two popular continuous improvement methodologies, LSS provides a systematic approach to problem-solving processes and a toolkit to assist employees with building their cognitive muscles.

LSS helps teams find a better way to achieve a company's goals by providing continuous improvement with the Plan-Do-Check-Act/Adjust (PDCA) method taken from Lean methodology, paired with the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) method, taken from the Six Sigma methodology.

The PDCA method consists of first identifying the issue and root cause by using visual management, then fixing the root cause by applying countermeasures. The next step involves seeing if the problem is fixed by comparing the results to the initial goal and, finally, fine-tuning the fix so that the improvement is continuous.

The DMAIC method consists of defining the problem, quantifying it, identifying the cause of the problem, implementing and verifying the solution, and, lastly, maintaining the solution.
