Praveen Gupta, President of Accelper Consulting, sent me a few copies of his new book entitled Virtually Stat Free Six Sigma. (Thanks for the reference to iSixSigma.com in the first chapter, Praveen!) Subtitled “Focusing on Intent for Quick Results,” this book dives into the biggest problems facing most companies and what tools are most likely to help solve them.
As Praveen and co-author Arvin Sri write, “Experience teaches us that most of the tools use din solving problems are simple and easy to learn. Even when statistics are needed, people often get mired in the technique instead of laearning how to benefit from it’s application.”
While this blog post is not intended to be a “book review,” I do appreciate the fact that:
- There are a lot of statistical tools to learn in Six Sigma, and
- Without knowing Six Sigma inside and out (or having a MBB or BB coach), it’s hard to figure out which statistical tools might help solve a problem
This book may help guide you in the right direction.
