A Lean Six Sigma Book Thinks It's All About Projects

From a lean six sigma book, a view of an integrated approach (click for a larger view):


The problem is this "Lean Six Sigma" view has a project-centric (project only?) view of the world.

This ignores Lean as a management system and an organizational culture.

If you "finalize solutions," where is the room for continuous improvement, or Kaizen?
