Good reference guide

This audio book is great to go over the main principles of Lean Six Sigma. I used it along with a company training program and it was fantastic. I would definitely recommend getting this even to have for later on after classes as a refresher.

Nice audiobook .

After reviewing all of the available literature that could be used as a compact student reference to supplement a course on quality management systems, I selected George's audiobook. It is a quick reference, not an audiobook. You cannot use it as a primary source, but it is an excellent quick reference to help explain concepts or review them. In combining Lean with Six Sigma, this audiobook gives the best value per dollar.

Six Sigma tools .

This is an outstanding reference, but you really need to be familiar with the Six Sigma tools before you use this audiobook This is the audiobook to refer to after you have had training in Six Sigma. I find the audiobook generally helpful, but still need to refer to more detailed sources at times, especially regarding the statistical analyses.

Best audiobooks for Six Sigma.

One of the best audiobooks for Six Sigma. You can use the audiobook as a reference to the phases off methods along with some examples. If you are seeking an audiobook that teaches you SixSigma then this is not for you. The audiobook summarizes all that you need to know about SixSigma and its tools but doesn't go deep.

Great reference audiobook .

Great reference with clear text. This is not a bible on Lean Six Sigma but I think it is much more usable than the tiny pocket reference audiobook and has of what you need. I am an MBB and the Director of Continuous Improvement at my company and I give this to all my Black Belt candidates.

The perfect reference guide to Six Sigma.

The perfect reference guide to Six Sigma. I found this audiobook helped to make Six Sigma more understandable than any other audiobookI've listened by guiding me through DMAIC with a step by step process using realistic examples and techniques. The author also uses everyday language that makes it a pleasure to listen. The screenshots complement the detailed instructions for using MINITAB which I found extremely useful and easy to follow. An excellent purchase for anyone involved in Six Sigma.

A very practical guide .

I was familiar with the 1st edition and used it a lot. A very practical guide, walking you through the steps of six sigma. Not losing time on details but every comment is essential and key. The links and explications on Minitab are very clear and again the emphasis on the efficiency of the integration of the software Minitab and the six sigma methodology.

Certified in six sigma,

I wanted to get my company certified in six sigma, but we have already tried with no success. We were using some online guide which was quite spotty looking back on it, and now we're using this audiobook has a ton of information to absorb, and it is straight and to the point. It left me with no questions at the end, which is saying a lot.

A reader friendly guide to Six Sigma

Easy to understand tools and techniques. It describes them in a high-level manner as there is an assumption you already know LSS. This audiobook Six Sigma is way better than any beginner audiobook that I've to listen all the others were too boring or too slow. This audiobook was straight forward and got me what I needed to know.

Superb reference book! .

I've never heard about lean six sigma before, so my friend told me to pick up this audiobook. It has a ton of great factual information about the background of lean six sigma, along with how you can become six sigma certified. The audiobook isn't too long, but it is enough to give you an in-depth knowledge of what six sigma is.

Very practical guide to Six Sigma .

A friend of mines told me that I needed to make my business lean six sigma certified, and I just so happened to find this audiobook. So far, it has helped me a TON in terms of getting that six sigma certification. I've already transformed about half of my business over to it, and it just seems like I made my business 10x better.

Too much variation!

If you know your way around Lean Six Sigma you'll be frustrated by some of the terms used in this book. If you're new to the topic, then you might get lost along the way. I get the feeling that this book has been translated into English and not revised to better suit Audible.
