- Describe briefly at least two core elements of lean that you personally can use to improve your selected organization.
- Compare/contrast four operational excellence approaches (Six Sigma, TQM, Theory of Constraints, ISO, etc.) for a lean enterprise using the simple matrix.
Note: The matrix will need to be included in your paper.
