Lean and Six Sigma Stories : Real Stories From The Real Business World
by Ian Cato and Izzy Sanchez




Overview -
This book is a group of short stories collected over our combined 60+ years of successes in lean and six sigma, in simple business language. Some stories are real, some may not be so real, you can decide while remembering "that real life is stranger than fiction". Business all over the world is very similar, and you may find that the stories are relatable to everyday life and activities. "Six Sigma is not for us, lean works better than six sigma, six sigma is faster than lean, lean is faster than six sigma, lean takes too long, six sigma is too restrictive. " These are many other variants we have heard over the years from people from all industries and backgrounds. Are they right? You bet, in their mind, based on their experience, and feelings, they are right. That's what they know. Very likely they have suffered by some poor implementation of lean, six sigma, or both, and have seen it fail, or have been brainwashed by someone claiming to be an expert in either one, or both. But more realistically they have been hurt by a one trick pony that tried to follow a book or got trained by someone who has no real-life experience in lean or six sigma. So, if you have either embraced or rejected Lean Six Sigma, Continuous Improvement, or similar programs, you will enjoy the stories as they are from real engagements and projects, and who knows, you may see your very similar situation here
