    What type of Lean Six Sigma books would you recommend for a Executive team? We are just starting to build our Lean Six Sigma Culture.

    The short answer is that you want something that concentrates on the big picture rather than getting deep into the weeds. Many books are full of applied statistics and the intricacies of tools such as FMEA, Gage R&R, QFD, etc. On the other hand you don’t want something that comes off as a sales pitch without substance. Either of these is a turnoff for most execs. Look for something that has case studies and practical strategies for culture change. If you want a specific recommendation tell us what industry you’re in.

    Consider “Leaning into Six Sigma” and “All I needed to know about manufacturing” for good story telling.

    Also, quick google search found this link–I have no affiliation with it.

    I’m a fan of “The First 90 Days” by Steve Zinkgraf

    This book may be best suited for the person / team leading the deployment, but it is a great supplement to all who are involved.

    I quite liked “The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook”, partly because it is quite brief, but also because it gives a nice overview of what the various tools are and how they fit together – really important for management!

    Another book to consider is: Leading the Lean Enterprise Transformation
