3 The Character of Lean Six Sigma Little literature is available on the integration of Lean Management and Six Sigma (see [Pepper and Spedding, 2010, p. ]), especially regarding the search for a “common model, theoretical compatibility, or mutual content or method” ([Bendell, 2006, p. 259]). The two concepts stem from different roots, but they both aim at perfection. The implementation of either of the two systems alone may fail to achieve perfect quality (see [Arnheiter and Maleyeff, 2005, p. 5] and T¨ opfer and G¨ unther [2009]), as the weaknesses of the two concepts are not compensated: Lean Management lacks a scientific approach, waste being eliminated on the basis of intuition rather than relevant data, facts, and measurements contained in the Six Sigma concept (see [Arnheiter and Maleyeff, 2005, p.

267]). The next section will explore how to operationalize success further by defining adequate measures for this research. 2 Measurement of Corporate Success Organizational or corporate value, which can be reflected through multi-dimensional performance measures, results in short-, mid- or long-term organizational capabilities— depending on the operationalization and perspective taken. The challenge lies in developing and using meaningful criteria instead of imposing arbitrary or subjective values (see [Caplow, 1953, p.

Corporate Success gives a company the positioning in the marketplace and ensures sustainability, on the other hand performance is due to this positioning and competitive abilities (see Barnett et al. [1994]). 7 an arrow is shown to account for this loop. Success can be distinguished by three equally essential criteria (see [Caplow, 1953, p. 3]): • Performance of objective functions (measured by institutionally imposed standards, which range from simple bookkeeping devices to complex and sensitive judgments) • Minimization of spontaneous and unregulated internal conflict (which threaten the existence of the whole) • Maximization of satisfaction for individuals (assuring their continued membership in the organization) The meaning and understanding of “success” is therefore ambiguous and not clearly defined, as there is no agreement on the use of such criteria (see [Gronhaug and Falkenberg, 1990, p.
