Lean Six Sigma is geared toward driving business improvement projects and facilitating solutions to organizational problems. Project management practices form just one component of this holistic approach. Project management training, including the project management professional certification (PMP), focus on learning tools and techniques to ensure that projects are planned adequately in order to meet budget, cost, and scheduling goals. Unlike Lean Six Sigma, the PMP does not include any improvement or problem solving components. Lean Six Sigma training and PMP can complement each other, although they are designed to achieve different objectives.
