Excellent Reference Tool,
This review is from: The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook: A Quick Reference Guide to Nearly 100 Tools for Improving Quality and Speed: A Quick Reference Guide to 70 Tools for Improving Quality and Speed (Paperback)
This is an excellent reference book.
The tools are laid out in an easy to understand manner and the book concentrates on using tools together. Other books I have read are so concerned with explaining the tools in a strict order that they forget that you need to be able to understand how you approach using & linking them together.
You don't need much understanding of Lean Six Sigma to understand and finds ways to implement tools & techniques from this book.
I would definately recommend it to anyone starting out with DMAIC. Some things take a few times to read for them to sink in but since the book leads from tools logically it's easy to understand where you would need to use them.
For those who use Lean Six Sigma, it's a good reference to dip in and out of.
It's still worth understanding Lean Six Sigma & DMAIC from a more detailed source to understand the overarching framework since this book aims to blast into the tools & techniques.
However, an excellent thought out book. Far better than a few others I have read which despite having more detail, ended up being more vague anyway!!!
