What is 109+92?

Implementing Lean Six Sigma in any organization or company will require experts no matter what. For this, the first option most owners go for is by accessing consulting services for this methodology. However, integrating LSS into a business does not have to be taken care of by relying on experts and consultants you are not familiar with.

An option available is to develop your own talent by training part of your employees. You can consider this a two-options situation:

  1. Rely on Lean Six Sigma consultants to implement and start projects.
  2. Take the time to develop talent by training workers in different belt levels.

The question that rises from these options is: which one is the best?

A company always needs to consider its goals and the necessity of Lean Six Sigma if it wants to choose the right option. But it is common to be confused when there is no previous experience in handling the methodology nor relying on experts for the task. Therefore, allow us to give you some advice:

  • If you want fast results and do not have time or budget to train your workers, Lean Six Sigma consultants are the best choice.
  • For efficient results and projects that will take place based on your company’s goals without worrying too much, consulting services continue to be the best.
  • But when you have time and resources to invest in yellow, green, and black belt training—which are the main levels in the methodology—, you should decide to develop talent.

The latest option allows companies to have their own team of experts established with reliable workers and previous employees. But for now, let’s focus on a situation where you cannot rely on training and certifications.

At Lean Six Sigma Experts of Maryland, we are very familiar with this situation since many companies in the state have contacted us for it. LSS is a process improvement methodology, which means it is essential for any company that wants to remain in business and competitive. But its integration can take time, which could lead to a downfall when experts take too long.

Our consultants’ job will be to guarantee results and handle different tasks. But if you are still unsure about what you need or why you should rely on consultants, to begin with, let’s discuss it a bit more.

With what we have mentioned so far, you can determine it is not always the case. But they can be indeed indispensable if the company that wants to implement 6 Sigma is having a hard time with it. Also, consultants are not only meant to implement or handle the entire project but also deliver advice and provide guidance. This means you can rely on them even if your needs do not include something such as starting and managing the projects for you.

Now, more than them being necessary all the time, it is about knowing if they are necessary for you and your situation. What will help you to determine this is to understand everything they are able to handle:

  • Control production quality.
  • Meeting customer satisfaction.
  • Maintain customer retention.
  • Achieve main objectives of Lean Six Sigma: reduce waste, eliminate variations and defects.
  • Integrate a changing culture within the company.
  • Strive for continuous improvement and achieve it in the organization.
  • Obtain fast and positive results.

As we mentioned before, it is important to keep in mind a Lean Six Sigma consultant is the solution if you want results to take place really fast. But besides implementation and all the previous mentions, it is possible to go for a training option. Consultants can help you with all the integration but also deliver Lean Six Sigma training for the workers in the company. This means you can choose if you want to approach it separately and have experts implementing it alone. Or go for the Six Sigma training in compliance with the other tasks of the consultants.

A fact when considering Lean Six Sigma consulting services is that you need to make sure you can afford it. Consultants are not cheap and this goes for any of them regardless of the industry. However, for 6 Sigma, the fees can go high depending on your needs. Very experienced consultants even charge between $2,000 to $3,000 per day, and this is something not all companies can afford.

The best option is to find services that can cover your needs while also adjusting to your budget and resources. Hourly or weekly payment for the consultants is a great option if the company allows you to do so. And at Lean Six Sigma Experts of Maryland, we do not have problems with any of these options. The fees or how much a Lean Six Sigma consultant charges will also depend on who you hire and rely on for the task.

Therefore, mentioning another amount is quite inaccurate, but we can mention how much we charge. First, we focus on our clients' needs and your company’s situation. This means you can expect us to keep in mind what you can afford and what you cannot. Our experts are qualified and have been working with 6 Sigma for years and this makes their range between different prices. But our usual cost goes around $500 per day according to how much our consultants will be doing.

Keep in mind that the results 6 Sigma consultants achieve are not in a matter of months but rather weeks, which means you do not need to rely on them permanently, especially if training is included in the tasks. Overall, our company and consultants charge much less compared to others in the state and since not all experts have the same fees, you can find one or a few that go better with your resources without worrying about the results you want to achieve.
