Description : A practical, straightforward guide to Six Sigma for employees in organizations contemplating or implementing Six Sigma From noted Six Sigma consultant and author George Eckes, Six Sigma for Everyone explains the underpinnings of the revolutionary quality assurance methodology, offers in-depth examples, and outlines the impact and desired end result of implementation.

Description : Often the most difficult part of the Six Sigma process is getting everyone to understand and completely support the initiative. This is the focus of The Six Sigma Journey from Art to Science, which explains the Six Sigma process in a very understandable and easy-to-read manner. the book is a fictional novel which follows the main character as he implements Six Sigma in his company. it chronicles the deployment of Six Sigma along with the real events that happen as companies implement Six Sigma, including the people who oppose it, what is needed to make Six Sigma work, and the many successes and the failures along the way. Through the use of examples and the lives of the characters, the reader gains an understanding of not only the technical aspect of Six Sigma but also the human side. Because the book is more motivational than technical the reader gets a much better understanding of why Six Sigma is successful. an ideal book for any company looking to get started in Six Sigma, or those experienced in Six Sigma hoping to better educate employees on the process. I 'know' all the people in the book -- the true believers, the cynics, the 'supporters' who give lip service only, those truly committed and involved, and those looking for ways to make the initiative fail. I know them because I have worked with them, trained them, counseled and suffered with them, as they worked so hard to do the right things for their companies. a very worthwhile, non-technical book for executives, managers and people just wanting to get an understanding of what Six Sigma is all about and some of the hazards and complexities of implementation. - Michael D. Jones, PE Senior Master Black Belt Past President of ASQ.

Description : Millions of readers remember The Goal, the landmark business novel that sets forth by way of story the essential principles of Eliyahu Goldratt's innovative methods of production. Now, from the AGI-Goldratt Institute and Jeff Cox, the same creative writer who co-authored The Goal, comes VELOCITY, the book that reveals how to achieve outstanding bottom-line results by integrating the world's three most powerful continuous improvement disciplines: Lean, Six Sigma, and Goldratt's Theory of Constraints. Used by the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps to dramatically improve some of the most complex, logistically vast supply chains in the world, the VELOCITY APPROACH draws on the strengths of all three disciplines to deliver breakthrough performance gains. In physics, speed with direction is velocity; in business, the application of VELOCITY means your organization can achieve operational speed with strategic direction to outmaneuver competitors, gain loyalty with customers, and rapidly build sustainable earnings growth -- in as little as one or two business quarters. Dee Jacob and Suzan Bergland, two princi-pals of AGI, have been teaching the concepts, techniques, and tools of VELOCITY to major corporations, including Procter & Gamble, ITT, and Northrop Grumman, for years. Now they unlock the door for you to see how to apply their insights and methods to your organization -- be it business, not-for-profit, manufacturing, or service based -- in order to shorten lead times, slash inventories, reduce production variability, and increase sales. Writer Jeff Cox returns with the vivid, realistic style that made The Goal so readable yet so edifying. Thrust into the presidency of the subsidiary company where she has managed sales and marketing, Amy Cieolara is mandated by her corporate superiors to implement Lean Six Sigma (LSS) in order to appease a key customer. Assigned to help her is LSS Master Black Belt Wayne Reese, installed as her operations manager. But as time goes on and corporate pressure mounts, Amy finds she has to start thinking for herself -- and learning from everyone around her -- and she arrives at the series of steps that form the core of the VELOCITY APPROACH. VELOCITY offers keen insight into the human and organizational factors that so often derail growth while teaching you proven, practical techniques for restarting and revving up the internal engines of your company to reach new levels of success. Colorful characters, believable situations, and everything from dice games to AGI's "reality tree" techniques make this business novel a vital resource for everyone seeking to deliver business improvement in these challenging economic times -- and far into the future.

Description : Ee have been deploying Lean Six Sigma in various large and medium size companies for many years and have realized excellent results in most instances. We found that while Lean Six Sigma does a great job addressing the primary concerns of manufacturing and service, we felt that there was something missing in the deployment of Lean Six Sigma programs at many companies. Something that could help foster sustainable breakthroughs; something to realize durable performance and sustainable quality enhancement based on a happy and engaged workforce, something to create a real learning organization in which people are working smarter, are committed and improve themselves continuously. We found that the results could be enhanced if the importance of Human Capital is considered as an integral part of the process. We learned that Lean Six Sigma, in itself, does not sufficiently address Human Capital at many companies. While expected results from Lean Six Sigma alone will be good, we believe that adding the human component to Lean Six Sigma has the potential to realize sustainable, longterm growth and produce a transformation into a lean, learning, prosperous organization. That’s why we are launching a revolutionary, holistic concept in this book called TPSLean Six Sigma. Combining these complimentary processes actively brings human involvement into Lean Six Sigma in a manner that not only stimulates commitment, integrity, worklife balance, and passion, enjoyment at work and employee engagement but also stimulates individual and team learning in order to develop a happy workforce and sustainable performance improvement and quality enhancement for the organization. TPSLean Six Sigma is a continuous voyage of discovery involving continuous personal and organizational improvement, development, and learning. The starting point in this concept is a journey to understand personal goals and ambitions of the workforce. Then we take the organizations goals and ambitions and marry them with the workforce, and find the best people for the job. Using our structured approach for aligning the personal scorecards with the organization’s scorecard, we are able to create a symbiotic relationship between employees and organizational desires through the establishment of Lean Six Sigma project teams that will enthusiastically drive positive results. TPSLean Six Sigma is like a ‘turbocharged’ Lean Six Sigma program. All of the proven, sound methodologies of traditional Lean Six Sigma are charged with highly motivated team members. The result is a powerful people driven Lean Six Sigma program called TPSLean Six Sigma that leads to a High Performance Culture and allows employees to realize their full potential and contribute creatively while the organization benefits from increased profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction. People are happiest when they are given freedom, challenges, and control over their lives. TPSLean Six Sigma also offers a systematic and integrated approach to the transformation of people in organizations, and to impact business strategy, culture, organizational effectiveness and the controllability of business processes. It entails a learning process, which transforms people into happy, inwardly involved, and committed employees. This will not only allow them to contribute exceptionally but will also persuade them to support, defend, and promote their organization. This approach lies at the heart of successful organizational and cultural change. After all, it is difficult to change the organization, but if we change ourselves, the organization will change with us. This unique TPSLean Six Sigma system is based on several new models, guidelines and tools that have been proven in practice. It integrates the individual’s aspirations with the shared ambition of the organization, balancing the personal with the shared ambition, embedding ethical behavior in the individual’s mind and links individual capabilities with an effective talent management process. TPSLean Six Sigma and the related new tools provide an excellent and innovative framework for creating sustainable breakthroughs in both the service and manufacturing industries. This new book emphasizes the introduction of a new blueprint, called TPSLean Six Sigma, for addressing the primary concerns of manufacturing and service in a more sustainable and humanized way. It leads to a High Performance Culture and allows employees to realize their full potential and contribute creatively while the organization benefits from increased profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction. By way of this book, Hubert Rampersad & Anwar ElHomsi are launching a revolutionary, holistic concept which actively has human capital embedded in Lean Six Sigma in a manner that not only stimulates commitment, integrity, worklife balance, passion, enjoyment at work and employee engagement but also stimulates individual and team learning in order to develop a motivated workforce and sustainable performance improvement and quality enhancement for the organization.
