Running an organization is simple. Running an organization that is effective and efficient and has little waste is another story. At the core of every organization, what defines how it operates on a day-to-day basis is its philosophy and strategy. Not to be overlooked, the theories and strategies deployed by management and reinforced by those who execute the organization's mission ultimately define its success. Process improvement, quality control, and customer satisfaction can simultaneously be managed and improved upon with the implementation of lean six sigma. Data driven and rooted in analytics, the techniques and principles of lean six sigma have been around since the early 1920s.
An integration of the lean production philosophy and process improvement techniques of six sigma, lean six sigma combines two leading initiatives in order to take an organization to the next level. Through a calculated and developed strategy, the implementation of lean six sigma allows organizations to provide goods and services that meet or exceed customer expectations, efficiently coordinating the efforts of teams to get projects done the right way. Implementing lean six sigma begins with understanding exactly all of the concepts and the philosophy.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Decent high level overview
This overview of Lean Six Sigma was just that, an overview, and a very high level one at that. I know that the book is short and as such has limited bandwidth for presenting details, but with a "Quickstart Guide" title, I expected something that would actually help someone get started with Lean Six Sigma, and I did not feel that this book accomplished that goal. That being said, the material was still interesting and I enjoyed listening to it.
As far as the "performance" or narration of the book is concerned, I enjoyed Lucy's voice and thought she did a good job reading the material and keeping it from being too dry. My only complaint and the reason I only rated the performance at 3 stars is because there is a slight room echo, and while it probably won't bother most people, it was a bit distracting for me.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com

TOTAL WASTE OF TIME
A junior college attempt to write a summary of companies that use six sigma. Totally useless. The author should be taken off the audible book list. I am going to petition to get my money back!
