I just paid for a sales pitch

I expected to learn about value stream mapping. this was just about selling six sigma, not teaching a methodology. I stopped half-way and skimmed through the rest in hope for content.

Complete waste of money

I don't normally write reviews, but this book is so bad I felt I had to. This is a complete waste of money - poorly written, poorly narrated, and complete devoid of meaningful content.

Disappointing

This is essentially an infomercial for Lean Six Sigma. The book does not address value stream mapping as suggested in the title. The book is mostly composed of truisms and generalities. An interested reader would have to resort to at least one other work to actually implement any part of Six Sigma.

Practical. Real. On target.

This book will introduce you to the basics and show differences between Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma. This book holds true to the name "A quick start guide for beginners". I would recommend to a friend.

Yeah great

I liked this book for its clarity and brevity. It does not teach you how to implement a Lean Six Sigma project but it will give you very valuable advice on why and how to get further training.

Not a book, but a pamphlet.

This should not be called a book.

The content is barely enough for a pamphlet

A six sigma advertisement

No detail on value stream mapping as a process is or exercise. If you remove the words six sigma it would be half the length

Solid overview

This, in general, is a very well written book. This was a very good book on understanding the importance of modeling and communicating clearly to those in the organization. It also gives a solid understanding of value stream mapping and surrounding processes.

this book is a good place to start

It is definitely one of those books that everyone doing this work will want to own. It fills the gap that still existed for those of us who are in the service industry!Useful as an introduction to VSM mainly focused on service industries not for experienced people.

Really good book
