Today I will be starting a series of posts about Six Sigma, a subject that I am very interested in. In this first post, I am reviewing the book Design for Six Sigma + LeanToolset published by Springer.
As you may have heard Six Sigma revolutionized companies like Motorola (where it was initially developed) and GE,(becoming famous when Jack Welch made it central to his successful business strategy at GE in 1995).
Today having a Six Sigma certification can help you with promotions and career progression. But before you get your certification I encourage you to read this book and learn more about what Six Sigma is and how it works.
- Offers a unique learning experience through an outstanding structure and design
- Based on more than 15 years of practical experience with the Six Sigma + Lean Toolset
- Presents a wealth of valuable tips for users
The Toolset is a comprehensive collection of the relevant Design for Six Sigma+Lean tools, which are necessary for successfully implementing innovations. All tools are presented in a clear structure, providing a good overview of the methodology.
The chronology of the listed tools corresponds to the procedure in a Design for Six Sigma+Lean development project with the stages Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, and Verify. Due to this unique structure by which tools can be found and applied quickly we created a book that facilitates project work in practical use enormously.
Migrating from a tool based approach to a question based approach is a decisive successfactor in our opinion enabling firstly, increased efficiency of project work for the Project Leader, his team and the associated Stakeholders, and secondly, significantly increasing the probability of success for the respective innovation projects.
