    Derk, Good morning!
     
    Look to the blue column at the left on the page; near the top is a link entitled “New to Six Sigma” — click on it — should be able to help you.
     
    Best regards,

    My answer to your question dovetails with our previous exchange regarding BOKs.  I find that most Six Sigma books are limited in their scope and BOK, but they attempt to make Six Sigma the end-all be-all instant pudding approach to everything under the sun.  I’d rather that the foundation for continual improvement be a systems approach, with Six Sigma being a tool set to be used as necessary, instead of a tool set for all things.  To paraphrase the Bible, Six Sigma, as practiced, is the house built on a foundation of sand.  The theories and tools of Dr. Deming and Juran are the house built on a foundation of stone.  They will (and have) weathered the storm.

    Some colleagues and I were bemoaning the neglect and disappearance of some classic engineering textbooks:  Physics by Halliday and Resnick, Electromagnetics by Krause, Thermodynamics by Sonntag, and others.  The stuff they teach is timeless.  As an Amazon reviewer lamented about the unavailability of Stuart Pugh’s book:  “just because a guy dies doesn’t mean his teachings are irrelevant”.
    I’ve also had a conversation with my spouse about how all the old music seems better than the new music.  It isn’t that the old music is better, it’s that time has filtered up the GOOD old music and left the BAD old music (of which there was PLENTY) forgotten.  With new music, you get the mix of good and bad.
    Point is, there’s a lot to be learned from the classics.  It’s stood the test of time for a reason.  The original sources are still relevant and the original ideas haven’t been lost in translation.  If there is a new SS book that’s truly good, we’ll still be talking about it in 2028.

    Fake Ati Alert,
    What part about Deming and Juran is no longer relevant because of the age of what they wrote?
