    Process improvements not only lead to better productivity but also contribute directly to a firm’s profits and revenues. Methodologies like Lean Management / Six Sigma / Theory of Constraints, when used appropriately, have the potential to transform work areas leading to higher job satisfaction for the individual and lower turnover rate for the organization.
