    Good Foundation

    I bought this and then bought 15 more copies for my management team. We are reading it in small groups and applying the concepts. We are very interested in lean six sigma but is was difficult to communicate the concept to everyone from the housekeeping manager to the Chief Information Officer and have them all on the same page. This book did the job and although it is an easy fast read it makes a good book for any level.

    Good training wheels for newcomers -- Experienced bikers can skip this one!

    This is truly a great book for someone wanting to develop a cursory understanding of two distinct yet embracing organizational quality systems. Six Sigma and Lean Principles have come together to demand attention as they take their place in modern production principles. It is a very quick read but very thorough in its explanations of the foundations and implementations of Lean Six Sigma.

    Packed with Knowledge !

    Six Sigma books often couch their wisdom in acronyms or jargon, or they offer vague, unfulfilling anecdotal narratives. This book is different. As trim, focused and efficient as if a Six Sigma team had designed it, it gets the job done. Its mission is simple: explain the basic structure of Lean Six Sigma initiatives to readers who are likely to become involved in one. While select case studies are judiciously sprinkled throughout, this is a meat-and-potatoes book that tells you what you need to know in clear, straightforward prose. Although the authors - Mike George, Dave Rowlands and Bill Kastle - humbly issue the caveat that this is not intended to be a comprehensive reference, its terse yet relevant style will probably make it one of those dog-eared volumes that barely gets back to the HR bookshelf before it¿s checked out again. Because of its plainspoken functionality, we recommend this manual strongly to anyone whose future may involve Lean Six Sigma.
