Lean Six Sigma combines the two most important and popular quality trends of our time: Six Sigma and Lean Production. In this plain-English guide, you'll discover how this remarkable quality improvement method will help you identify and eliminate waste, cut costs and grow revenue, enhance your job skills, and even make work more meaningful.
