Description:

A handy guide to the successful planning and implementation of Six Sigma Six Sigma Workbook For Dummies offers hands-on guidance for both management and technical aspects of Six Sigma implementation, particularly in applying the statistical tools necessary for sound decision-making. An important companion for the more conceptual Six Sigma For Dummies, this book serves as a source for more focused statistical explanation and practice, facilitating a deeper understanding of Six Sigma methods. This is the perfect vehicle for anyone with a basic understanding of Six Sigma who wants to customize the model with real-life numbers and walk through the process of determining how best to apply Six Sigma to specific situations. Craig Gygi (Eden, UT) and Bruce Williams (Scottsdale, AZ) are executives at Savvi International Corporation, a business solutions company that specializes in improving business performance through the application of Six Sigma, Lean, and Process Management techniques. They previously coauthored Six Sigma For Dummies (0-7645-6798-5), one of the most successful Six Sigma guides available. Terry Gustafson (Scottsdale, AZ) is also an executive at Savvi, handling its administrative and financial operations.
