The ways a company can go about their continuous improvement process can vary widely and involve a number of key methodologies and techniques. These are all measured in a way of understanding current processes, identifying inadequacies and then either reducing or eliminating them. Being a continual process this tends to focus on gradual improvements.

One of the keen methodologies involved in process improvement is Lean Six Sigma. This combines key methods from both Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma and together form a key business management strategy. Each continuous improvement project implemented has defined financial expectations on how they will impact the business (i.e. reduce waste and therefore increase profitability). To achieve these the project will follow a defined sequence of steps which are consistent across all projects.

As an instrumental part of any company's business Lean Six Sigma is recognised as an essential practice and specific training is involved. The training in this field is via a belt based system which provides certification at a range of levels - White, Yellow, Green, Black of Master Black Belt levels.
