Dangerous. Incorrect. Misleading. Do not listen.

I am worried that this type of extremely poorly prepared and presented audio book will leave listeners with a confused interpretation of LSS. Tools are described in reverse order i.e. Stream Value instead of Value Stream. The description of the 7 wastes is wrong. This book should be removed from the site. Not only is it a total waste of money but it leaves listeners a) frustrated if they are aware of LSS (I was looking for a guide to direct novices toward) b) with a totally misleading interpretation of LSS which could easily put them off, or those that they try to explain this books interpretation off what is a powerful method for people and process improvement. Avoid at all costs.

Too much variation!

If you know your way around Lean Six Sigma you'll be frustrated by some of the terms used in this book. If you're new to the topic, then you might get lost along the way. I get the feeling that this book has been translated into English and not revised to better suit Audible.

Took a lot of effort to listen to the end.

I currently already have my Yellow belt and am studying both for a lean practitioner and Green Belt qualifications.
so when I saw this book I was very interested.

I was very disappointed when I listened to it. it is over jargoned and complicated. that is said as someone with a fair knowledge of lean.

it also seems to ramble before getting to the point. I would therefore not recommend this book.

Excellent Quick Reference for Lean Six Sigma Tools

I purchased this audiobook preparation for enrolling in a Six Sigma certification course which costs a pretty penny. I love the way this audiobook is outlined and explained. It's really giving me a good foundational knowledge that can only benefit me in obtaining my certification.

Be a Six-Sigma Guru .

The DMAIC diagrams for each step in the Six Sigma framework provided in this audiobook stand out as unique and especially useful. While this sounds generic and basic, it is actually difficult to find good, succinct, and specific diagrams that cover each of the DMAIC steps.

Absolutely Amazing!

An outstanding scheme matters most when it comes to running an organization, thus reducing defect which can be a potent risk. One of the possible ways to reduce the risk of defect is to use Six Sigma. It has been wonderful and productive so far.

Good reference guide

This audio book is great to go over the main principles of Lean Six Sigma. I used it along with a company training program and it was fantastic. I would definitely recommend getting this even to have for later on after classes as a refresher.

Learn six sigma very quickly

Wow. If you do any Lean or Six Sigma work, this audiobook is for you. The tools are easy to access and have enough detail to enable a new Lean/Six Sigma use to leverage them. The audiobook is divided into logical chapters that can help you in each purposeful step of your DMAIC journey/project.

Poorly written

I am very confused as to why this book has so many good ratings. It Sounds as if it was poorly translated into English from a different language, with multiple errors in verb tense and pluralization of words. Very difficult to follow- I do not recommend.

Not what I was looking for

I was expecting more practical and hands-on information, but I really struggled with the book, found it a bit hard to follow and with too many pretty words that don't mean much

Worthless book

This reads like it was translated into English by a computer — Lean Six Sigma buzzwords mashed into nonsensical sentences. Don’t waste your money on this.

Nice audiobook .

After reviewing all of the available literature that could be used as a compact student reference to supplement a course on quality management systems, I selected George's audiobook. It is a quick reference, not an audiobook. You cannot use it as a primary source, but it is an excellent quick reference to help explain concepts or review them. In combining Lean with Six Sigma, this audiobook gives the best value per dollar.

Six Sigma tools .

This is an outstanding reference, but you really need to be familiar with the Six Sigma tools before you use this audiobook This is the audiobook to refer to after you have had training in Six Sigma. I find the audiobook generally helpful, but still need to refer to more detailed sources at times, especially regarding the statistical analyses.

Best audiobooks for Six Sigma.

One of the best audiobooks for Six Sigma. You can use the audiobook as a reference to the phases off methods along with some examples. If you are seeking an audiobook that teaches you SixSigma then this is not for you. The audiobook summarizes all that you need to know about SixSigma and its tools but doesn't go deep.
