Industries and Functions

We often hear people say, “Sure Lean can help if you are manufacturing cars, but it can’t help my business…my business is different.” At Adaptive, we recognize that all businesses are different. However, we also know that Lean thinking and Six Sigma problem solving methodology can help all businesses. Lean is about people and process; all businesses are in some way comprised of both. Six Sigma is about solving business problems; everyone has them. Below are just a few examples of the industries and functions with which our team can help.
