The International Conference on Lean Six Sigma (LSS) for Higher Education was founded by Professor Jiju Antony in 2013. The conference has attracted over 300 academics from over 30 countries since then. The sixth International Conference on Lean Six Sigma (LSS) for Higher Education will explore the current status of the Trinity of Operational Excellence (OPEX) in the Higher Education sector. OPEX is a powerful operational strategy that increases process performance, resulting in reduced waste across the HE sectors, improved efficiency of business processes resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction and improved bottom line results in hard cash savings. The objective of LSS is to transform the HEIs from separate reactive operations, which are generally functionally oriented, into cross-functional process-focused organizations to meet the demands of 21st century education. Although a number of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have been utilizing Lean principles, research has shown that very few HEIs have been integrating the best practices of Lean and Six Sigma for developing and sustaining a culture of continuous improvement.
