The book was very long and assummed that you knew something about Six Sigma. The author gave examples that did not tie back to any specific project or initiative. Overall the book was long, and drawn out to the point that you missed what the author was trying to communicate.
The reader was monotone and boring. Very few specific or worthwile examples. Preached on the value of Six Sigma but to vague to be useful.
Six Sigma isn't a new management tool. It is, however, sometimes more complicated than it needs to be. I was looking forward to receiving this book and was dissappointed in it because it was too complicated and long. If you are currently using Six Sigma as your performance improvement tool, then this book would be good. If you are looking to learn more about Six Sigma, this book would be good. HOWEVER, if you are looking to listen about what Six Sigma is....this book may not be for you. If you're the later, I suggest listening (or reading) this book several times.
There were a couple gems but even they were lost in the drone of Six Sigma this and Six Sigma that. If you know nothing of Six Sigma, the book may have some value, but if you're at all familiar with the system, you're not likely to learn much from this book. The book starts off okay, but I soon found myself not even listening.
Not a very user friendly audiobook. Jack Welsh does a better job explaining six sigma in his Winning book.
Six Sigma sounds great but it's all theoretical. It felt like more of a sales pitch for six sigma than an informative book. The book included very little real world advice or even subjective facts. "If you go from 2.4 sigma to 2.6 sigma your profit will go up by 22%." What does this mean? The author does not provide the reader with a framework to understand these concepts. Six Sigma sounds great but the book doesn't elaborate on what six sigma means or how to get there. If you must listen to this book, listen to only the last CD.
