In the Policy Group, policy officers work in areas such as policy development, strategic analysis, security, international business policy and even the parliamentary affairs related to the sector of the business.

Identifying the vertical agreement metrics between governments that may affect trade between members and that prevent, restrict or distort competition ("vertical restraints"). Variables and metrics to define a legal framework for the assessment of vertical restraints, which takes into consideration the distinction between anti-competitive and pro-competitive effects in the marketplace.

Lean Six Sigma Methods and Approaches

lean Six Sigma is the combination of the world's best and most rewarding process improvement strategies. Founded upon the Define, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) framework - the industry standard within the Six Sigma community worldwide - and combined with the powerful principles of Lean, certificates and belts to deliver well-scoped Lean six Sigma projects on time and drive substantial ROI for your organization on all your initiatives.

Lean: Eliminate waste, reduce cost and cycle time
INITIATIVES > Define + Measure + Analyze + Improve + Control > MAXIMIZED RESULTS
Six Sigma: Reduce process variations and eliminate errors


Lean Six Sigma (combination of Lean methods and Six Sigma approaches), a well-known approach for achieving operational excellence, can, as it turns out, do more than simply improve processes and cost reduction. Lean Six Sigma builds on the practical lessons learned from previous eras of operational improvement. Lean approaches focus on reducing cost through process optimization.

The appropriate IT infrastructure and Critical Success Factor: In the past, companies used Lean Six Sigma primarily for operational improvement refining existing processes to reduce costs, improve performance and provide better customer value. However, dramatic upheavals in the competitive marketplace are prompting business change on a much more massive scale and a review of critical success factors (CSF) for change efforts such as renewing and implementing appropriate IT infrastructure.

Six Sigma is about meeting customer requirements and stakeholder expectations, and improving quality by measuring and eliminating defects. A company’s operations strategy and/or methods - total quality management (TQM) and just-in-time (JIT) - is often an integral part of a more fundamental enterprise transformation – one that impacts not only how a company works, but also its products and services and its overall business model.

In the past, companies used Lean Six Sigma primarily for operational improvement – refining existing processes to reduce costs, improve performance and provide better customer value. However, dramatic upheavals in the competitive marketplace are prompting business change on a much more massive scale and a review of critical success factors (CSF) for change efforts.

The Lean Six Sigma approach has applications far beyond process improvement; leading companies are using it to innovate in all areas of their businesses – their operations, their products and services and even their business models.

Lean Six Sigma incorporates, and deploys, the key methods, tools and techniques of its predecessors.
The more recent concepts of lean and six sigma have mainly replaced – but not necessarily added to – the concepts of JIT and TQM. lean and six sigma are essentially repackaged versions of the former, and the methods seem to follow the fad (product) life cycle.

The literature offers fairly similar and rather general CSF for these methods, e.g. top management support and the importance of communication and information.
Lean focuses on waste elimination in existing processes.

Six Sigma also focuses on New Process Design/Complete Redesign (DMEDI) for wholesale redesign of processes as well as new products and services. Six Sigma focuses on Continuous Process Improvement (DMAIC) to reduce variation in existing processes.

Through the discipline of Lean Six Sigma, it is possible to help other CEOs and business unit leaders to make substantially improved business performance and permanently reoriented their organizations’ mindsets, creating the type of environment where innovation can flourish.

A systemic approach to organizational change and improvement

Based on the gap in time between both JIT and lean, and TQM and six sigma – a gap filled by BRP/reengineering – the next method will be process oriented.

These are all done while CEOs and unit leaders start to re-build the image of operations strategy and related management approaches such as Lean Six Sigma, thinking of them not only in terms of process improvement and cost reduction, but also in building approaches to surface significant innovation opportunities that have far-reaching impacts on their businesses.
