This book illustrates how most organizations can become more competitive, reduce defect levels, and improve cycle times. It describes the S4 (Smarter Six Sigma Solutions) implementation road map and the typical topic sequencing that we use with our training. It includes exercises and S4 assessment sections at the end of most chapters to stimulate the thought process relevant to selecting the “best approach” for any given situation. Implementing Six Sigma has over 800 pages of practical, how-to information with over 100 examples. The book consolidates not only the traditional Six Sigma process measurements and improvement tools, but also many other useful methodologies into one easy-to-understand text.
