Based on the Juran Institute’s breakthrough method, Juran’s Six Sigma: Breakthrough and Beyond goes beyond certification or implementation processes discussed in most six sigma texts to prepare an organization's managers — at all levels — to deal with the practical day-to-day human, structural, and technological issues which arise when initiating and maintaining a Six Sigma effort.

Juran's Six Sigma: Breakthrough and Beyond allows you to modify your program to suit your individual requirements. With this book, you get everything you need to improve and maintain Six-Sigma breakthrough performance long after the consultants have packed up and gone home.
