a struggle

I found this hard to get through. I've listen to a bunch of these books and this book was by far the worst. I would not recommend this to anyone.

The book doesn't even explain what six-sigma is!

Any additional comments?

The book just talks about what sigma can do and doesn't explain what six sigma is or how it can be implemented! Doesn't even 'explain' the basics of Six Sigma (DMAIC etc.). An absolute waste of money and time!

useless

This is the most useless book I've read or listened to in a long time, maybe ever. no real content. mostly only anecdotes about 6 sigma.

Painful but necessary

If you are in the corporate world, you need to make yourself aware of these things. This book however is a bit painful, and the subject matter could probably have been handled better.

Say six sigma

Wow, basically worthless. If you want to hear a narrator say the word six Sigma over and over and over again and the slow halting style and this is the book for you. It provides little in the way of actual business guidance and ends up being much more of a sales tool to try to convince you to use six Sigma. I bought the book because I wanted to learn more about six Sigma and how I could implement it in my company. This in no way accomplished my goal.

Some interesting points but unimpressive

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Most of the book seemed pretty generic. It did provide some info worth listening to, so it wasn't a total waste, but much of it was pretty much general knowledge. The puns were annoying, certainly not amusing.

I found it very useful and inspiring

I have studied Six Sigma at Motorola University and therefor have a good understanding of the concepts and the technical stuff behind.
The book doesn’t give a “HowTo” on the practical level and implementation, regarding all the hardcore mathematical tools and a real step by step on the DMAIC process – BUT a very good top level management insight

Examples only

I guess it’s excellent if you can only learn by example and pomp... nothing but prose and musings on fictional examples.

At best: useless. At worst: a sales pitch from the author.

What I learned from this book:
A 1 minute investment in time to read the reviews would have yielded a 4 hour ROI.

I agree with most reviews here. This book has very little value. Lots of cheerleading for 6 sigma without any actual applicable knowledge.

The purpose of this book was obvious to me in the final paragraph in which they tell you the email address of the consulting firm who wrote the book... this is a 4 hours warm up to a sales-call.

Ok im Abo, sonst nicht sonderlich empfehlenswert

Das Buch ist als Einstieg in Six Sigma interessant vor dem Hintergrund, dass es von verschiedenen Unternehmen und, recht oberflächlich, die Grundstruktur von Six Sigma darstellt.Entsprechend ist dieses Werk interessant und es werden an einigen (wenigen) Stellen sogar Ausfllüge in Details gemacht. Im Großen und Ganzen kommt dieses Buch über den Unterhaltungswert nicht hinweg.Daher für jeden Abonnenten interessant, der sich einen groben Überblick mit Unternehmensgeschichten am Rand verschaffen will. Nicht-Abonnenten sollten bei der Zielsetzung einen Einstieg in Six Sigma zu bekommen andere Lektüre vorziehen.

Langweilig und zu 100% unnötig

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Inhalt.
Struktur.

Was hätte the authors anders machen müssen, damit Sie das Hörbuch mehr genossen hätten?

HIer wird immer wieder wiederholt: Six Sigma ist toll gelaufen bei ... der das eingesetzt hat für ...
Was Six Sigma aber ist wird überhaupt nicht erklärt - es wird lediglich um das Thema herumgeschwafelt - über 4 Stunden lang, was die Sache doppelt ärgerlich macht: Geld verschwendet, Zeit verschwendet!

Wie hätte das Hörbuch besser vorgetragen werden können?

Vermutlich gibt es hier nichts zu retten - der Vortragende hat aber eben auch nichts gerettet.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Dieses Hörbuch sollte man sich unbedingt ersparen.
