Leaner Six Sigma provides both novice and experienced Lean Six Sigma practitioners with a method for quickly explaining the basic tools so that they can be applied immediately to make processes and products better, faster, and more cost-effective independently as well as in concert with the basic methodology.

This book drastically simplifies concepts, methodologies, and application. Whether you are seeking professional Six Sigma credentialing, this book this is valuable because the statistics have been simplified and the models are easily adapted to current workplaces -- even those workplaces that currently involved in a process improvement program.

One of the prime benefits of this book is that techniques and tools can now be applied independent from the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) model to make small improvements. The same tools and techniques can also be used in personal problem-solving. Many other books try to take the science of Lean Six Sigma in a more complicated direction, but Leaner Six Sigma is geared toward business professionals, especially project managers, who are basically looking for quick application of the set of techniques and tools for process improvement. In addition, this book offers up real-life application and problem-solving opportunities.

Essentially, Leaner Six Sigma simplifies the thoughts, concepts, and terms used in traditional Lean Six Sigma programs. Using this book, practitioners can quickly and effectively apply theories and models without constantly consulting large or complicated manuals. The information in this book is simplified in a way that stresses clarity and applicability -- the explanations are directly tied to a specific activity that is meaningful and easy to recall.
