highly recommended!!

The I would say its a quick reference, not a training material for Six Sigma. You won't be able to use it as a main source, but it is a splendid compact guide to help explain six sigma concepts or refresh them when needed. Definitely recommended

helpful resources


I used the study guide as a source of core knowledge for a study group in my work setting. I felt the information was comprehensive. I supplemented material with isixsigma sources and other materials. I felt that someone new to six sigma may struggle with owning some of the concepts associated with the measure phase. Otherwise the other phases and background on DMAIC and Lean principles were clearly explained. I would recommend the purchase of this book.

amazing

Lean Six Sigma: Quickstart Guide is an excellent business management model, and will walk you through the aspects of managing your organization step-by-step.

I was interested in this audio book because many employers have recently implemented Lean Strategies in the workplace, and I like to keep up. I was curious to find out what the core management concepts were that they taught in this book. I enjoyed the .pdf download that accompanies the audio book. It allowed quick reference material so I didn't have the need to take notes.
