Lean Six Sigma Books: Project Execution Guide

pegThis Lean Six Sigma Project Execution Guide provides a detailed memory-jogger type roadmap that follows the DMAIC process improvement roadmap. There are many memory-jogger books, which list the tools of Lean, Six Sigma, and continuous improvement. These books can do a good job explaining tool applications; however, these books do not typically link these tools together in a detailed project execution roadmap format.

Benefits from this book include providing a:

  • Consistent roadmap-delivered methodology that can be readily referenced when executing organizational improvement projects.
  • Vehicle which expedites the tool-application learning process and improves the efficiency/effectiveness of experienced-practitioner coaching sessions.

In addition to project selection, this workbook provides the following deliverables for a successful process improvement project completion:

  • List of deliverables and suggested tools: High-level summary of what is expected in each phase and what tools one may consider applying.
  • Road maps: A detailed step-by-step process of selecting and applying various Six Sigma/Lean tools and techniques to meet all the project deliverables.
  • Check sheets: High-level check lists for each project phase which can be used by Black Belts, Green Belts, Champions, and/or executives to ensure that all major phase requirements have been met.
  • Tools: A high-level description of many tools where there is reference to IEE Volume III or IEE Volume II of the IEE book series for more details.
  • Statistical program execution: Described tool-application techniques are independent of statistical software; however, the syntax for Minitab statistical software usage is included.
