Getting Home by Liz McCartney,Zack Rosenburg Summary

When the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina receded around New Orleans, they revealed unimaginable destruction and a traditional disaster recovery process that was Byzantine, costly, and far too slow for the victims who just wanted to get home. Getting Home is the inspiring story of a defense lawyer and a school teacher who left their careers to rebuild homes for desperate survivors but wound up reconstructing the entire process for rebuilding after disasters. Authors Liz McCartney and Zack Rosenburg describe how SBP, the disaster relief nonprofit they founded, partnered with Toyota to apply the lean principles of the Toyota Production System to rebuild homes and lives following hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods throughout the U.S. and its territories. For lean thinkers, this story offers a fresh look at lean tools being used in non-traditional settings. With a short-term volunteer workforce, a layer of middle management that turns over every 10 months, and constantly shifting sources of income, SBP seemed like it could never escape a constant cycle of emergencies and triumphs. Using lean tools, however, Liz and Zack got their work processes under control and found the time to think deeply about the nature of disasters and rebuilding and found themselves with a clearer mission. The book also details an innovative, 9-step blueprint for how private industry, relief agencies, volunteers, and all levels of government can work together to dramatically shrink the time between when disasters hit and victims get home in a prompt, efficient, and predictable way. ___ "In these pages, you will read and be inspired by the spirit of a defense lawyer and a school teacher who left their careers to rebuild homes for the most desperate survivors of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. What Liz McCartney and Zack Rosenburg quickly discovered about this work is that the duration of time between disaster and recovery inflicts an immense toll on people. They were determined to do better and Toyota wanted to help. By sharing the Toyota Production System with SBP, we helped them reduce the home rebuilding time by about 50%." - Jim Lentz, CEO, Toyota Motor North America, Inc

Coaching Green Belts for Sustainable Success by Steve Pollock,Daro Mott Summary

Six Sigma Green Belts need support in applying new skills after training, yet there is little research about how this works and even less advice about what support looks like in the field. This book is that missing link in providing coaching tips to support Green Belt projects. There is an abundant amount of information on the technical, “hard skills” aspects of Six Sigma, while considerably less about the interpersonal side of DMAIC. Research has shown that desirable Green Belt project outcomes are greatly influenced by collaboration issues between the coach and the Green Belt team member, and therefore this text focuses on tips for effective collaboration practices. Besides being a comprehensive discussion about how to coach Green Belts on their first project, it may also be used to coach subsequent Green Belt projects. A case study of Louisville Metro demonstrates this book’s ideas in the field and includes an example of one of its actual Six Sigma Green Belt projects.

TPS-Lean Six Sigma by Hubert K. Rampersad,Anwar El-Homsi Summary

Ee have been deploying Lean Six Sigma in various large and medium size companies for many years and have realized excellent results in most instances. We found that while Lean Six Sigma does a great job addressing the primary concerns of manufacturing and service, we felt that there was something missing in the deployment of Lean Six Sigma programs at many companies. Something that could help foster sustainable breakthroughs; something to realize durable performance and sustainable quality enhancement based on a happy and engaged workforce, something to create a real learning organization in which people are working smarter, are committed and improve themselves continuously. We found that the results could be enhanced if the importance of Human Capital is considered as an integral part of the process. We learned that Lean Six Sigma, in itself, does not sufficiently address Human Capital at many companies. While expected results from Lean Six Sigma alone will be good, we believe that adding the human component to Lean Six Sigma has the potential to realize sustainable, long-term growth and produce a transformation into a lean, learning, prosperous organization. That’s why we are launching a revolutionary, holistic concept in this book called TPS-Lean Six Sigma. Combining these complimentary processes actively brings human involvement into Lean Six Sigma in a manner that not only stimulates commitment, integrity, work-life balance, and passion, enjoyment at work and employee engagement but also stimulates individual and team learning in order to develop a happy workforce and sustainable performance improvement and quality enhancement for the organization. TPS-Lean Six Sigma is a continuous voyage of discovery involving continuous personal and organizational improvement, development, and learning. The starting point in this concept is a journey to understand personal goals and ambitions of the workforce. Then we take the organizations goals and ambitions and marry them with the workforce, and find the best people for the job. Using our structured approach for aligning the personal scorecards with the organization’s scorecard, we are able to create a symbiotic relationship between employees and organizational desires through the establishment of Lean Six Sigma project teams that will enthusiastically drive positive results. TPS-Lean Six Sigma is like a ‘turbo-charged’ Lean Six Sigma program. All of the proven, sound methodologies of traditional Lean Six Sigma are charged with highly motivated team members. The result is a powerful people driven Lean Six Sigma program called TPSLean Six Sigma that leads to a High Performance Culture and allows employees to realize their full potential and contribute creatively while the organization benefits from increased profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction. People are happiest when they are given freedom, challenges, and control over their lives. TPS-Lean Six Sigma also offers a systematic and integrated approach to the transformation of people in organizations, and to impact business strategy, culture, organizational effectiveness and the controllability of business processes. It entails a learning process, which transforms people into happy, inwardly involved, and committed employees. This will not only allow them to contribute exceptionally but will also persuade them to support, defend, and promote their organization. This approach lies at the heart of successful organizational and cultural change. After all, it is difficult to change the organization, but if we change ourselves, the organization will change with us. This unique TPS-Lean Six Sigma system is based on several new models, guidelines and tools that have been proven in practice. It integrates the individual’s aspirations with the shared ambition of the organization, balancing the personal with the shared ambition, embedding ethical behavior in the individual’s mind and links individual capabilities with an effective talent management process. TPS-Lean Six Sigma and the related new tools provide an excellent and innovative framework for creating sustainable breakthroughs in both the service and manufacturing industries. This new book emphasizes the introduction of a new blueprint, called TPS-Lean Six Sigma, for addressing the primary concerns of manufacturing and service in a more sustainable and humanized way. It leads to a High Performance Culture and allows employees to realize their full potential and contribute creatively while the organization benefits from increased profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction. By way of this book, Hubert Rampersad & Anwar El-Homsi are launching a revolutionary, holistic concept which actively has human capital embedded in Lean Six Sigma in a manner that not only stimulates commitment, integrity, work-life balance, passion, enjoyment at work and employee engagement but also stimulates individual and team learning in order to develop a motivated workforce and sustainable performance improvement and quality enhancement for the organization.

Six Sigma by William Truscott Summary

There are a number of distinctive features of this book that makes it different from other on Six Sigma. It recognizes that there are two diametrically opposing views expressed on Six Sigma, those that are strongly in favour, and those that are not, for various reasons. The book deals, head on, with the principle reasons for such hostility. It cuts through the hype associated with the brand name. It proposes simple remedies for certain defined frailties in the standard approach, particularly those related to the Sigma Measure that provides the brand name for the Six Sigma breakthrough strategy. The book is highly supportive of the Six Sigma continuous improvement process, provided it is tailored to the needs and expectations of a particular organization. The commitment and active participation of top management is emphasized, to ensure the necessary change in culture and priorities demanded, in most organizations. Practical guidance is given in the setting up, operating and developing the project by project approach across an organisation. The book also covers how to equip a critical mass of members in an organization with the core workforce competencies required to get the desired results. The book covers the realities of applying Six Sigma in a range of functions within an organization and also to various types of organizations from the manufacturing sector to commerce and public service. It demonstrates how statistical thinking, coupled with the application of technical and operational knowledge of processes and focus provided by Six Sigma, can considerably enhance quality, competitiveness, effectiveness and efficiency. Statistical process control is a tool, which enables both manufacturers and suppliers to achieve control of product quality by means of the application of statistical methods in the controlling process. This book gives the foundations of good quality management and process control, including an explanation of what quality is, and control of conformance and consistency during production. The text offers clear guidance and help to those unfamiliar with either quality control or statistical applications and coves all the necessary theory and techniques in a practical and non-mathematical manner. This book will be essential reading for anyone wishing to understand or implement modern statistical process control techniques.

Lean Six Sigma by Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA Summary

Lean Six Sigma is a synergised managerial concept of Lean and Six Sigma that results in the elimination of the seven kinds of wastes/muda (classified as Defects, Overproduction, Transportation, Waiting, Inventory, Motion and over Processing) and provision of goods and service at a rate of 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO). Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Black Belts", "Green Belts", etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction and/or profit increase).
