Item description for Six Sigma for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations: Success Through Scaleable Deployment by Terence T. Burton...
About 80% of the industrialized world has not taken advantage of Six Sigma techniques to improve productivity and profit. These small and mid-sized corporations can benefit from Six Sigma methods but are struggling with how to deploy them on the scale suitable for their organizations. This book explains the leadership, strategy, execution, integration, alignment, and performance measurement issues that are universal to all organizations deploying Six Sigma, and then shows you how they can be applied successfully in small and mid-sized organizations.
Many books cover the statistical tools in detail, but focus on their use exclusively in large multinational companies. With models, hands-on techniques, and a framework for Six Sigma success in smaller organization, this book shows you how to retrofit Six Sigma to meet the requirements and constraints of your organization, whatever its size. Six Sigma for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations is a practical executive Six Sigma cookbook and "give me the answers quick" guide that provides a structured road map to success. It makes the power of Six Sigma so user friendly that any size organization can access and benefit from it.
