This book bridges the gap between a highly quantitative analysis of a process that requires extensive training (i.e., Six Sigma certification) and a more simplified approach that can be used and understood by the masses (i.e. Lean thinking). The goal of this book is to make the methods and tools of Lean and Six Sigma accessible to more people and provide a common sense or "practical" approach to problem solving and continuous improvement. This book intended to be used by Sigma Belt Levels, Lean Sigma (i.e., teachers), Continuous Improvement Specialists, frontline managers, and supervisors of departments and work groups, and experience while reducing waste and variation in all types of healthcare processes, The Lean Six Sigma tools and concepts are presented relative to the A3 read map to provide a definitive how-to guide to problem solving and continuous improvement (Kaizen) initiatives.
