Demand for Lean Talent Matches Six Sigma
A press release says that demand for Lean skills and experience has risen:
Based on its third annual sampling of Internet job postings, The Avery Point Group found that Six Sigma no longer outpaces Lean by a wide margin when it comes to desired skill sets, as was found in its two previous annual studies. Demand for Lean talent has grown in the past year to almost equal that of Six Sigma. The growth in interest in Lean talent has not, however, come at the expense of Six Sigma; rather the study shows an overall increased demand for continuous improvement talent utilizing these skill sets.
It also says that almost half of Six Sigma job postings also call for Lean experience and half of Lean job postings call for Six Sigma exposure.
