Abstract


The purpose of this paper is to determine the relationship between the Green Lean Six Sigma (GLSS) and the Management Innovation (MI) to be implemented in the Malaysian Automotive Industry. This paper tries to examine how the GLSS can contribute and have a positive impact on the development of MI to achieve better performance in the automotive industry. In addition, by applying the advantages of innovation in an industry, they are able to ensure they have a competitive advantage factor. There are several elements that can be selected to support the GLSS and MI practices in the automotive industry. The relationship between structure MI and GLSS is proved by the use of Structural Equation Model (SEM) as recommended. Since this is a concept paper, most of the literature from the previous survey taken as a basic guide for this study as well as the construction of models of the relationship between the GLSS and MI is made. Next, the hypotheses can be generated based on the model of the proposed research and literature review. It has been shown that the MI which acts as an intermediary for the Malaysian automotive industry can continue to perform to make the transformation GLSS practice management system in the Malaysian automotive industry more efficiently and effectively in line with the industry to be the best among the competitors in other countries.
