Abstract

Green deployment of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) projects is essential but unknown among scholars and practitioners. Therefore, we aim at identifying top readiness factors of green deployment of LSS projects. A survey questionnaire was distributed to LSS experts and academics around the world. A Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was conducted to identify top readiness factors. The analysis revealed seven new dimensions for critical success factors (CSFs), critical failure factors (CFFs) and barriers, and five new dimensions for motivators. This study serves as an initial call for managers and research scholars to favour the sustainable deployment of LSS projects in manufacturing.
