Review by leestubbs
I thought that this book provides a pretty good grounding in 6 Sigma. I really enjoyed seeing how the authors made the between the philosophy and the practical tools and techniques associated with the concept.The only thing I did not enjoy was that the book was trying to distance itself from the Total Quality Movement of the 80s and the Process Reengineering movement of the 90s. I would prefer to see the authors acknowledge the learnings and acknowledge the development of the concepts that have led to 6 Sigma as an approach.
