The Six Sigma Way: How GE, Motorola, And Other Top Companies Are Honing Their Performance

£14.99

Product description

Cost reduction...productivity improvement...customer retention...these are the promises of the Six Sigma quality management system. The Six Sigma Way reveals how GE, Motorola, and numerous other companies are successfully using Six Sigma to fine-tune products and processes, improve performance, and increase profits. Now you can read the roadmap for implementing Six Sigma in your manufacturing or service organization. The authors, who have worked with some of the most visible Six Sigma companies including GE, provide step-by-step guidance and practical implementation guidelines. Whether your goal is to fix a process problem or implement Six Sigma company-wide, The Six Sigma Way will help you develop an approach customized for your company's needs and the challenges of the twenty-first century business environment. The Six Sigma Way addresses the challenges and politics of launching, leading, and training people for Six Sigma; focuses on implementing the major steps and quality improvement tools in the Six Sigma system; it also features insights, comments, and examples from business leaders and managers using Six Sigma in their organizations.

This hardback 2000 edition is complete with its dustjacket. The jacket shows a few signs of shelfwear: there is a vertical scuff on the backcover and it is rubbed along the front edge. It is bound in red boards which are gilt-stamped on the spine. The page block is clean and bright, and appears to be unread.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
