CHTN Western at Vanderbilt University Medical Center has utilized the principles and philosophies of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) since 2007.   Recognizing the need to operate in a leaner fashion in response to diminishing federal research dollars, LSS has assisted in increasing customer satisfaction, streamlined operations and reduced overall operating costs.  

In an effort to assist other biorepositories and research laboratories to utilize and implement the LSS philosophy, we are making portions of our project management and LSS workbooks available to the scientific community.
