Publisher's Summary

Two Books for One Amazing Value: Lean Six Sigma and Lean Quickstart Guide !
Lean Six Sigma QuickStart Guide
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 are 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.
Lean QuickStart Guide
Lean. Total quality management. Process improvement. If you're in the business world, you've undoubtedly heard these terms - from your supervisor, from a client, or from someone talking shop in the breakroom.
Don't get overwhelmed by the long books that simply have too much information and are impossible to follow. In the Lean QuickStart Guide, we will teach what you need to know to get up and running with lean.
You'll understand the fundamentals that form the lean business model so you can incorporate it into your business wheelhouse within hours.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Excellent Summary of Lean Concepts

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent summary of the Lean and Six Sigma (LSS) concepts. For those who are new to these ideas, it should give you a basic idea of the methodology involved.

It will not give you the knowledge to go out and immediately implement the LSS ideas. I don't know if any book would do that. But it will at least better familiarize you with what sort of things are focused on, as well as the terminology and framework behind LSS.

There is some repetition of key-points. Some people might not like that. But, if you're driving in your car and can't give the audio-book your full attention, it's nice, particularly when you think to yourself, "What did the author just say?" (and prepare to rewind). Or maybe that just happens to me? Also, I think that by repeating some key information, it helps with the memorization of these concepts.

In any case, you won't be a LSS Blackbelt when you're done listening to this audio-book. But this audio-book will certainly help you as you begin your journey into the concepts of continuous improvement, which starts with you and, ideally, results in significant improvements in the work place.

Full Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

A Brief Guide to Six Sigma and Lean

What made the experience of listening to Lean Six Sigma and Lean QuickStart Guides the most enjoyable?

This audiobook is great if you are looking to gain a basic overview of the concepts of Six Sigma and Lean. The listener will definitely need to download the PDF files that accompany this audiobook in order to make sense of the information provided. The Six Sigma and Lean strategies themselves would need to be learned in a manner beyond the capabilities of an audiobook, however.

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

informing. good basic grounding and justifications

enjoy the audio version of this book. didn't receive however the pdf automatically and had to email for support. expected more information on the negativity of this topic within industries. the criticism of these concepts could have been covered more in depth. but generally very impressed with its content.

Excellent introduction to Lean

If you could sum up Lean Six Sigma and Lean QuickStart Guides in three words, what would they be?

Full Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. The book is clean, to the point and a great introduction to the lean system. It is technical however so I highly recommend having the PDF guide handy to review the various diagrams and bullet lists.

Would you recommend Lean Six Sigma and Lean QuickStart Guides to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, it's an excellent introduction to lean sigma 6 without any unnecessary pontificating or time wasting fat. Straight to the point and launches directly into what you need to know.

Which character – as performed by Lucy Vest – was your favourite?

The reader Lucy West is great, and easy to listen to. Clydebank Media seem to be finding some perfect readers for their material. This is my second audiobook from them and I've enjoyed both readers.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No I did it in about 3 readings as there is a lot of technical material to absorb. I listened to it twice through which I would also recommend.

Any additional comments?

Another top quality product from Clydebank Business, keep up the awesome work guys.
