Book Description

Implement the world's most powerful improvement Methodology in 30 Days

Lean and Six Sigma are two of the most important developments to come out of management theory. On their own they offer clear strategies for improving efficiency and controlling quality; together they are an even more formidable prospect, providing organizations with a strategy that can bring in improvements in both, a task which can sometimes be a real challenge. Gopal Ranjan and Tanmay Vora, experienced in the fields of quality management and passionate about helping organizations drive improvement, present a clear strategy for implementing lean six sigma, giving you both the knowledge and the tools to drive improvement successfully.

Implementing Lean Six Sigma structures the implementation process over a month, and gives you clear guidance on what to do and when. Beginning with the theoretical basics of Six Sigma, it then takes you through the various stages of a Lean Six Sigma improvement program, from defining and analyzing issues with efficiency and quality, to taking the steps that can get your organization the results it needs. Practical, knowledgeable and accessible, this guide will make Lean Six Sigma your improvement methodology of choice

How can we improve? This is one of the most fundamental, but challenging, questions an organization can ask itself. It is never easy, but the ability to drive significant change that can bring positive results is immensely important for a business that wants to be successful in a rapidly growing market. Lean Six Sigma offers a way of answering this question, combining the approaches of both Lean and Six Sigma in a way that offers an opportunity for exponential improvement in a way that is manageable, flexible and sustainable. Spanning a month's implementation process, this book will take you on a Lean Six Sigma journey, where you will gain a clear understanding of the fundamental principles, and develop a clear perspective of the process as it unfolds. From defining the problems to be tackled, to their measurement and analysis, this book leads you towards the stage of innovation where you can take steps that ensure and sustain improvements.
