4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent birds-eye view of Six Sigma August 19, 2003
As a manager with a 4-year background in Statistical Process Control, I cannot agree with the two reviewers that bashed this book. I can't say it's in depth, because that's one thing that it isn't: don't expect it in your Black or Green Belt's curriculum. But if you stick to the title, it will reward its readers (mostly managers, I'd hope). It deals in very clear and easy-to-follow words (even for those of you that have been out of school for many, many years) with what is Six Sigma, what it entails (in terms of cost, benefits, cultural mindset change), how to implement and sustain, etc. It even devotes an entire section to an overview of the statistical tools required to get your arms around Six Sigma for the first time.
Again, I'd not use it as a reference for in depth matters, but as a primer on the topic, I think it does an excellent job.

I wanted to know about Six Sigma. I read some articals, but did not get a good picture of Six Sigma. This book is quite readable, interesting and provides a good introduction to Six Sigma. I recommend it to any one as the first book towards Six Sigma initiative.
