Internet Concepts Unlmited
Answer: Lean Six Sigma
Explanation: It should be noted that Lean is widely considered to be more of a philosophy while Six Sigma is considered more of a methodology. Typically I do not like to generalize and apply a particular model in blanket fashion as a "one-size-fits-all" magic pill. I believe the most effective solution depends on the specifics of the business evaluating the process improvement. So while Six Sigma will be better for some and Lean better for others, if forced to pick one out of the three as the most effective option, Lean Six Sigma offers an opportunity to combine or use the best from each, making it a more reliable choice as a more universally applicable methodology.
