Forrest Breyfogle, the author of Implementing Six Sigma, really knows his stuff about Six Sigma. But, literally, almost zip – zero, nada – about Lean. Why do I say that? Let me explain briefly, then I want to be done talking about this book.
In the book, he mentions “several tools” and calls one of them Lean. In his explanation, he doesn’t consider Lean a management system, but rather another tool in the process improvement toolbox. It’s a very newbie way of looking at Lean. My opinion.

And, his writing really got under my skin AND, while this book is a good resource for Six Sigma practitioners, it’s really not something one would want to read next to the swimming pool, or while relaxing on the couch, or on vacation.
But, it’s a good resource.
If you’re price sensitive, there are plenty for sale on amazon that are used and are super affordable.
