A best lean six sigma book review was posted by Robert Morris on Amazon and as a blog on his website.


Application of this Best Lean Six Sigma Book

The paperback version of this Minitab and Lean Six Sigma: A Guide to Improve Business Performance Metrics book is physically too large (8 ½ inches x 11 inches) to be considered a Lean Six Sigma Pocket toolbook. However, the Kindle e-book version (which can be viewed on any device) makes the valuable content of this book easily portable.

This book can become someone’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt book or Lean Six Sigma Green Belt book go-to reference. Many described book concepts are part of a certified six sigma handbook reference.


Highlights from Bob’s Best Lean Six Sigma Book Post

Bob’s website’s best lean six sigma book post and Amazon book review post are over 1000 words.

Some of the points that Bob made in these posts about this book were:

  • Explains how to execute and measure important process improvement projects
  • Provides the details for completing process improvement projects using Minitab functions within a clickable Lean Six Sigma DMAIC roadmap that has a focus on enhancing a significant business Y process-output response
  • Provides much information to prepare practitioners and management for the creation or improvement of metrics for the achievement of peak performance – no matter what size or extent of the enterprise
  • Book material provides much more than the details for the execution of process improvement projects. Provided material that addresses the creation of appropriate business measures and goals with strategic planning and the design of an Enterprise Improvement Plan (EIP) that aligns improvement projects with measurements and goals
  • Shows how to integrate both Lean and Six Sigma tools so the right tool is used at the right time
  • Shows how to apply a better approach for addressing the increasing challenges of the day through the 9-step Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) business management system
