Packed with Knowledge!
Six Sigma devotees may dispute the need to add anything to Six Sigma, but a shot of lean thinking provides a production boost. Author Michael L. George contends that Six Sigma reduces product quality variation but does nothing to improve delivery time. That may not be strictly true, and certainly is not beyond cavil. Nonetheless, the author¿s analysis and presentation of the Lean Six Sigma approach is lucid and straightforward. He explains Six Sigma itself much more clearly than some other writers on the subject. Even Six Sigma devotees will find nothing to object to in his treatment, and he provides some compelling examples of the success of the Lean Six Sigma approach. We recommend this book primarily to leaders and managers of firms that rely on factories and other production units. However, the author supplies practical information that may also be relevant to service providers and to every company that cares about customer service, efficient production and the bottom line.

Michael L. George Review of Lean Six Sigma
Author's presentation of Lean Six Sigma though OK mixes various examples in his presentation of Lean Six Sigma. He would have been more comprehensive in the flow of the book had he taken one case and walked through DMAIC citing specific statistical usage, charting and step by step explanations. This book is too generic to be useful in use of Lean Six SigmaWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
