Many organizations have seen dramatic improvements by implementing a Six Sigma system, including better efficiency, reduced errors, and increased profits. But for the individuals charged with implementing this system, it can be a long and arduous journey. The Six Sigma Path to Leadership: Observations from the Trenches was written to serve as a support guide for these individuals who may get lost or frustrated on their journey toward Six Sigma improvement. Author David Treichler has assembled a collection of stories showing how others handled these same situations, including the good and the bad with many how-to (and how-not-to) examples. The book is written for anyone – from senior management to the curious novice, with the intent to encourage and assist everyone, wherever they may be in their own Six Sigma journey.

The Six Sigma Path to Leadership is not intended to teach the specific tools or techniques of Six Sigma, but rather to inspire and motivate Six Sigma professionals to lead and teach others in the organization. The stories shared within will spark the readers’ imaginations and help them get the most out of their efforts.
