"If you want to bring the power of WorkOut to Six Sigma, this pocket guide is an invaluable tool." -- --Ron Ashkenas, co-author of The GE Work-Out

TWO PROVEN TOOLS FOR SUCCESS IN ONE STEP-BY-STEP POCKET GUIDE

Whether you've been using Six Sigma for years or are just starting to, you know it takes hard work to get it right. But WorkOut, developed by General Electric, can increase Six Sigma's success. Rath & Strong's WorkOut for Six Sigma Pocket Guide shows you how, with an action-ready game plan that you can apply to your initiative - right now.

Learn how to:

  • Set the stage for Six Sigma's success
  • Find out if you're in trouble - and get back on track
  • Make a good Six Sigma initiative even better
  • See actual results--in less than three months

"If you want to bring the power of WorkOut to Six Sigma, this pocket guide is an invaluable tool."--Ron Ashkenas, co-author of The GE Work-Out

Six Sigma: A data-driven approach to meeting customer requirements, solving process problems, and achieving bottom-line results.

WorkOut: The revolutionary problem-solving program that brings management and workers together to bust bureaucracy.

Companies worldwide use Six Sigma to measure and improve performance. Others use WorkOut to get quick bottom-line results and empower their workforce. But few enjoy the enormous success General Electric achieved by combining these approaches. Rath & Strong shows you how to get that synergy, with a handy pocket guide full of charts, checklists, assessment tools, and cases that help you:

  • Prepare for, reenergize, or enhance a Six Sigma initiative
  • Use a fast, simple alternative to Six Sigma
  • Make your culture more participative, data-driven, and customer-focused
  • Engage your front-line workers in Six Sigma

I love this book and have intergrated quite a bit of it in my approach to process improvement. I provide a copy to lean leaders and six sigma Green Belts and Black Belts that I develop on a regular basis. Six Sigma is not for every process improvement project, this pocket guide helps readers to understand the difference and why.

I just got the book and as promised by Amazon 3-4 weeks of delivery across the ocean.

I have not finished the whole Guide but it is already guiding me how to use WorkOut not only for Six Sigma but for other things in my organisation that need WorkOut.

Six Sigma is something we heard often but not many successfully implement it. I am confident that this guide without any other professional help can prepare us for the Task ahead.

Our Six Sigma teams were faltering and needed to be reenergized. Rath & Strong's GE WorkOut for Six Sigma Pocket Guide helped us kick-start our Six Sigma initiative! Through this guide we learn how to deal with resistance within the team, understand underlying causes and identify the best topics for WorkOut. Rath & Strong's Six Sigma Team Pocket Guide is a nice compliment to their GE WorkOut guide.
