Review: Lean Six Sigma Demystified: A Self-Teaching Guide

User Review  - Peter Bylone - Goodreads

Does get a little in depth sometimes, and I was really looking for an overview, but overall a good book on Lean and Six Sigma practices. Especially good if you're going to be implementing what you learn immediately or in the very near future. Read full review
