5.0 out of 5 stars Six sigma guide - a must for every manager 8 April 2010
Format:Paperback
I have extensive experience in the field of lean manufacturing and some experience of six sigma. This book has been a great guide to helping me understand six sigma in more detail. The book easy to understand and well wrote and deals with six sigma from the very start of the implemetation stage to the final close down satges.
I would advice any manager whom is either looking at implementing six sigma, doing a six sigma course or just needing to refresh forgotten skills to buy this book.
