What is an Executive Summary?
The Executive Summary is an overview of a Lean Six Sigma project for leadership review which highlights the resulting improvements. This one-page template summarizes the original business case, the project goal, a list of findings/improvements and a tally of the total project gains. The results featured are a mix of increased revenue, decreased costs, decreased cycle time, decreased waste, increased customer satisfaction, etc.. This summary is customarily the first page of either a Storyboard or an Executive Report of a completed improvement project.
