FOR CLIENTS: Talent Demand Trends April 24, 2018
Annual Lean and Six Sigma Talent Demand Study
Each year The Avery Point Group conducts a comprehensive study of the latest talent demand trends for Lean & Six Sigma ( . As an executive search firm we have a unique vantage point from which to track trends taking place in industry. Trends in industry are often telegraphed into candidate requirements in job postings and can serve as a window into the latest corporate initiatives. For our annual study we take a significant look at Six Sigma and Lean job postings found on the major job boards and review each job title and job content profile to gain a deeper understanding of the latest talent demand trends.  This enables our firm to better target our business efforts and serve our Lean & Six Sigma client base.

Over the years of conducting our study we have seen a significant shift in the "center of gravity" as it relates to the prominence of Lean as the rising and now more dominate player in the corporate world of continuous improvement. This is a significant shift from our first study in 2005, where Six Sigma outpaced Lean by more than 50% as the more desired skill set. We fully expect this trend to continue in our future studies as more companies turn to Lean as a hedge against growing economic and inflationary challenges.
