Excerpt

This is a book about lean six sigma methodologies. Additionally, this is a book written in the hope that you will use some of the tools we describe and put lean six sigma concepts to work to improve your business. There are many excellent books on lean and six sigma as separate methodologies, with each addressing different needs and preferences of their readers—high level overview, basic reference guide, service industry scenario, real life storytelling, etc. Our objective with this volume is to present the hybrid of the basic tools of lean and six sigma to give you a clear view, and sufficient comfort level, to implement what we are talking about. Some assembly may be required to make the fit to your specific industry and business model, but we'll provide the nuts and bolts and enough conceptual knowledge, to make you dangerous—to your competition.

That being said, here are the questions. What is lean? What is six sigma? How do lean and six sigma complement each other and how do I know where and when to use the appropriate tools? And of course, why should I change the way I am currently doing business and incorporate these operating methodologies?" Good questions.

When a hybrid term is used such as [lean six sigma] in relation to improving a business, it kind of equates to using the term [hammer wrench ruler] in relation to building a house. You'll need all the tools to get the job done, but the trick is knowing what tool to select for the portion of the job you happen to be working on, and how to use the specific tool to your full advantage. We'll do our best.
