    • Excellent Lean Six Sigma Pocket Book
      This book was a GREAT reference book for understanding Lean Six Sigma tools on Transactional / Service projects. I just completed my Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training through my company. I was one of three individuals (total of 35) within the class that was focused on transactional / service projects. This being the case, the training was geared more towards manufacturing floor Lean Six Sigma tools. Trying to convert these tools from manufacturing to office was VERY difficult. This is were the book came in handy. Not only was a able to make the transaction, but I was able to use these tools to successfully complete my first Black Belt project in the transaction world.
      I really liked how the book explained the use of Metrics of Time Effciency (Process Cycle Effciency - PCE)....more info

    • Good book for beginners
      Well this is a good book for beginners and covers a good amount of quality tools. Its written in simple language and easy to comprehend. I would recommend to any beginner to read. As one has commented this would not give detail explanation on the tools, so keep that in mind....more info
    • A quick refresher of Lean Six Sigma elements
      A well-organized, bullet-pointed listing of the big elements of the Lean Six Sigma processes. A great tool to have handy for referencing when the big kahuna wants to talk about the program. It's the size of a typical paperback novel and organized in a logical, intuitive fashion....more info
    • Nuts and Bolts of Lean, Six Sigma and more
      This book is a ready reference for the practitioner and well deserves its description as a toolbook. It includes top level tips and tools for idea generation, process mapping and data collection. Also provided are more advanced and specialized tools for statistical process control and six sigma, lean tools for reducing lead time and non-value added costs, and the less well known tools for managing operational and portfolio complexity.

      Works best for those with a basic familiarity the the ideas discussed, for whom it can serve as a handy reminder in the heat of application...more info
    • For reference only
      There are good tools, but there is no good detail about them so I could thing as tool box...more info
    • A Concise Reference Book for Quick Review
      It is a handy reference book that packed with tools and key points. In view of its approach and its size, I would say it reasonably include the information. Yet, if would be better (a) if its size be reduced in view of its contents; or (b) expand the contents a little more for giving more details; plus samples would be better. The book contains samples but are very brief. Don't read it as a reference book, it is not. Neither don't regard it as a textbook. If you want to have a briefing or general idea, then, this is quite a good book. If you are new to Six Sigma, I also recommend it to you for its size and contents. May be some other people with in-depth knowledge of Six sigma would tell if it is also good for them for revision....more info
