    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    This paper proposes a strategic business model called Sustainable Six Sigma (S3). It will provide an overview of the S3 concept through the integration of Lean, Agility and Six Sigma into one effective approach and shows how S3 has a clear strategic hierarchy which links the strategic business requirements through the PMASEE cycle with the operational requirements via the DMAIC cycle. The main aim of this paper is to show how the effective implementation of the S3 approach will lead to greater opportunities for companies to achieve economic sustainability through continued growth and improved manufacturing efficiency.
