Good Introduction to a Complex Subject,
This review is from: Lean Six Sigma for Supply Chain Management (Hardcover)
The majority of books and studies in the six sigma quality area deal with controlling your own manufacturing process - maybe that's because manufacturing quality people buy the books. But most of the problems that occur with actually developing, installing and using six sigma lie not in manufacturing but in managing the outside vendor supply chain.
Mr. Martin, a long time worker in six sigma and in lean supply chain management has put together a book that is completely understandable for such a complex subject. If anything the book is just a bit to understandable so that you may become convinced that six sigma is easy. It's not. An awful lot of big companies have been talking about six sigma but have proven unable to get to that standard.
All and all, this is an excellent overview of the six sigma concept when combined with Lean supply chain concepts. It's certainly a good place to start.

I find it hard to trust someone who has had almost 4,000 5-star reviews, with very few, if any, below 5-star. Something tells me this person is writing the reviews for money.
