Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) introduces a new organizational governance system that integrates analytics with innovation. The IEE system shows business leaders what to measure and report; when and how to report it; how to interpret and use the results to establish goals; how to orchestrate work activities; and how to develop strategies that are consistent with established goals. These strategies ultimately lead to specific projects that enhance organizational focus and success. This volume discusses problems encountered with traditional scorecard, business management, and enterprise improvement systems; describes how IEE helps organizations overcome these issues by utilizing an enterprise process define-measure-analyze-improve-control (E-DMAIC) system; and details the execution of this system.

Highly Recommended to Biz Leaders -- Addresses Most Pressing Enterprise Issues Jul 10, 2008
For nearly 15 years I have used the ideas from Forrest Breyfogle's books in industrial manufacturing, hi-tech, life sciences, oil/gas and retail to addresse the most complex business problems with Fortune 500, Global 2000 and start-up companies. IIE Business Deployment, Volume II of Forrest's latest series applies the concept of Lean Six Sigma to the improvement of the entire enterprise rather than just to a specific project. More specifically, the book provides a practical yet powerful roadmap for aligning enterprise strategy and executive dashboards/balanced scorecards with relevant project selection that impacts sustainable, long-term financial performance. As the director of one of the nation's fastest-growing companies and consultant to business and technology executives, I use this book as a handy reference for insights and tools. I give this book my highest recommendation. - Frank Shines, Former IBM Principal & Director of Industriaplex
IEE Vol II Hits the Mark for Identifying Relevant Improvement Projects Jun 24, 2008
Great read! Topics covered are very helpful for Senior Leadership, Quality Leader and Master Black Belt roles. Breyfogle's treatment of Satellite, 30,000 ft, and 20,000 ft metrics using infrequency Individual control charts is great. Many examples are given. Breyfogle clearly provides a methodology that integrates "Voice of the Customer" with business objectives to identify "meaningful" improvement projects. This is a must read for quality professional. If you are a Six Sigma / Lean practitioner, then you will also want Integrated Enterprise Excellence, Volume III.
A Breakthrough Methodology May 23, 2008
Forrest has continued to extend his process for getting companies on the right track. This latest series of books on the Enterprise takes his methodology to the next level and provides management with a much more proactive process for obtaining a competitive advantage. He clearly explains, and contrasts key approaches being used today and integrates them into a well defined system. It is clear from is identification and description of issues facing management, that he understands what is happening within companies today and continues to provide well thought out solutions. His continued emphasis on using data for reducing risk and making key decisions cannot be overstated. Management's assumptions and misconceptions about the company's real value chain often lead to conflicting strategies within the company. Getting agreement and buy-in on the value chain first and then setting strategy was a big breakthrough for me. Often this is done in reverse and it leads to dramatic strategy shifts every time there is a change in a key management position. Using the company value chain at the beginning of the process, identifying the key metrics and then setting strategy can significantly reduce poor decisions. For managers that have the desire to introduce discipline into their company, this set of books is a must.
