What Is Lean Six SIGMA By Michael L. George

Summary What Is Lean Six SIGMA

Good introduction to Lean Six Sigma. It's very broad and has little depth, but reading it allows you to ask intelligible questions about the concepts.

The format was a little disjointed; as it presented new information, there was no home base that it connected the ideas back to (you would only realize the coherence if you were already somewhat knowledgeable in the theory).

I'd definitely suggest this as a book for anyone who is curious about what Lean Six Sigma is, regardless if they're going into business or are determined to earn their Master Black Belt. Michael L. George This is a good introduction to the Lean Six Sigma method. Michael L. George Reading for work. Michael L. George A good quick overview of Lean Six Sigma. It doesn’t go into as many details as Six Sigma for Dummies did. This just tells you what it is, why it’s helpful, and how to start putting it into action. Very helpful little book. Michael L. George While monotonous, this gives a decent understanding of the lingo I am now expected to use at work. The book gives basic definitions and a broad overview of what the Lean Six Sigma approach is all about and ways a company might implement it. I think the biggest thing I took away from it is that with this approach, the problem is in the process, not necessarily the person in the active role where the issue may be taking place. Michael L.

Was also nice to read the parts about this will be frustrating and painful and not much fun but take heart, it will help in the end, we promise. I will be holding them to it.....

Mostly, though, I found myself comparing MY project to the example projects, and thinking, this project really doesn't fit the mold of what Six Sigma is for.... so...that makes me look forward to the project even less! AT least I like the people I will be working with.... Michael L. George
