While many companies have implemented either Lean or Six Sigma, there is a growing interest in a combined approach. Implementing the most effective aspects of each results in a more potent, adaptable system that benefits a wider range of organisations. Showing readers what a high-performing Lean Six Sigma culture looks like day-to-day, this new book contains best practices for structuring and practising Lean Six Sigma and explains how to adopt this game-changing approach with minimal disruption.

Down-to-earth and jargon-free, industry influencers Martin Brenig-Jones and Jo Dowdall open up the world of Lean Six Sigma in a way senior management can immediately use to create the optimal environment for improving operations every day.

Specifically designed for the busy executive and written from a leaders’ perspective, Lean Six Sigma For Leaders contains real-world case studies of a diverse variety of organisations including Barclays, Ricoh UK, and the UK Government’s Central Government Department and Homes and Communities Agency, illustrating implementation to show readers what went right, what went wrong, what they learned and what they would have done differently.

Outstanding quality control and continuous improvement shouldn't be complicated and burdensome. With Lean Six Sigma For Leaders, readers can quickly understand and practice the next-level solution to operations management.

Lean Six Sigma For Leaders is available in hardcover and e-book priced £18.99
