Roadblocks to the Implementation of Lean Six Sigma
While Lean Six Sigma can deliver exceptional benefits to any organization that implements it correctly, scores of organizations fall short of availing the comprehensive benefits offered by LSS.

The USA holds the largest army in the world, with over 1.3 million active-duty troops and over 865,000 personnel in the reserve force. This means that the USA will never run short of hands that protect its interest. However, this also means that every year, scores of veterans transition from military to civilian life in the USA.
Is Lean Six Sigma a Scam?
Over the years, a new notion has surfaced that questions the credibility of Lean Six Sigma. Lean Six Sigma has remained relatively unchanged over the years. Also, there is no governing body behind Lean Six Sigma that could continuously monitor the quality management spectrum and incorporate the development into altered learning. Because of these factors, the question that arises is, “Has Lean Six Sigma become obsolete or is Lean Six Sigma a Scam?”

Amazon’s Alexa, iPhone’s Siri, Microsoft Cortana, and Google Assistance has already changed the way voice-based applications work. So will this have an impact on SEO?
