    Greetings,

    I have wanted to get certified for a couple years and look forward to learning more!

    Recommendations on the best books and reference materials would be appreciated. Yes, I have searched just looking for the best books for Yellow belt beginners.

    Hi @jaimie.slater — Welcome to iSixSigma.com.

    We have a whole New to Six Sigma section of content here: https://www.isixsigma.com/new-to-six-sigma/

    Specific to books, here’s this post: https://www.isixsigma.com/community/blogs/best-quality-books-of-all-time/

    If you search the site, you’ll likely find other book recommendations. Perhaps don’t specify “Yellow Belt” in your search to have more success.

    @jaimie.slaterΒ  you are in the right place as @katiebarry suggests.

     

    I think @michael.cyger has contributed an article suggesting a number of stellar books on the Lean Six Sigma topic on here somewhere too.

    I second Kotter’s book.

    Michael George’s “Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook” was a go-to reference for me for years – but I can’t for the life of me remember if it’s better for learning or helping reinforce. (In other words, once you’ve gotten a few things under your, ahem, belt…)

    Also – and this isn’t about “quality” but more about the problem-solving aspect of Yellow Belting, try to get a copy of “The New Rational Manager”. It’s a handout from the KT Problem Solvers workshop, but I’ve also seen it on Amazon and ThriftBooks. It’s got some good case studies to prioritize and define problems.

    And you can’t go wrong with Womack’s “Lean Thinking”. It won’t tell you how to do a project, but it will help you understand the headspace.

    @KatieBarryΒ  – my bad, too busy rushing to answer and not reading the whole thread fully.
