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.

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.

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.

practical and useful data

This book will allow its readers to perceive what Lean is truly about. In addition this book will allow us to take in more about what Lean manufacturing and administration is, and how we can best join it with a portion of the thoughts from Six Sigma.

A fine introduction

This is a resource for any business owner to add to their business book collection. If the Lean World were a secret garden, then this would be your key to enter it.. This book provided an unmistakable, barefaced explication of the hypothesis and routine with regards to Lean Six Sigma.
