I found this hard to get through. I've listen to a bunch of these books and this book was by far the worst. I would not recommend this to anyone.
I think the biggest gripe I have about this book is the narrator's monotone voice ...i found myself frequently falling asleep...!!! other than that the contents are again a bit theoretical and due to my "sleeping" breaks i have to listen to this again to fully comprehend what the authors are trying to convey...!!!
bring more energy and subtle up/down intonations into the voice...
This is a good introduction to Six Sigma ways and practices. It is not a text book but gives good information on how and how not to use Six Sigma. Excellent examples.
I have studied Six Sigma at Motorola University and therefor have a good understanding of the concepts and the technical stuff behind.
The book doesn’t give a “HowTo” on the practical level and implementation, regarding all the hardcore mathematical tools and a real step by step on the DMAIC process – BUT a very good top level management insight
