In the age of AI and ML, where everything is getting automated, why would any one need an approach will can improve the process. Yes, mostly processes are set to become automated and that means they are already optimized. Will there at all be a need or scope to improve them any further?
Lets now look at how digital transformation is going and its adoption across sectors:
Lean Six Sigma is a way to challenge status quo, a way to solving problems and make improvements.
With AI and ML, neither will the need to challenge status quo or solve a problem or make improvements go away. In fact they will become even more challenging. That would mean, the need for Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques will be all the more important.
No Digital transformation commences without a good As-is analysis. The tools and techniques used for performing this are tools used in Lean and Six Sigma. Similarly, identifying how much improvement can be brought about requires going to the root of the problem. Technology solutions that are superficial will only add to the complexity and not simplify the business.
Thus even skills needed for Digital Transformation are part of Lean Six Sigma body of knowledge.
To be very specific, Lean Six Sigma Certifications will definitely be an added advantage in days to come which are dominated by AI, ML and Digital transformation.
