Lean Six Sigma Conference

Conference Overview

The International Conference on Lean Six Sigma (LSS) for Higher Education was founded by Professor Jiju Antony in 2013. The conference has attracted over 250 academics from over 30 countries since then. The fifth International Conference on Lean Six Sigma (LSS) for Higher Education will explore the development and sustainability of Organisational Excellence culture in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) through the deployment of Lean Six Sigma. LSS is a powerful operational strategy that increases process performance, resulting in reduced waste across the HE sector, improved efficiency of business processes resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction and improved bottom line results in hard cash savings. The objective of LSS is to transform the HEIs from separate reactive operations, which are generally functionally oriented, into cross-functional process-focused organizations to meet the demands of 21st century education.
