Six Sigma Deployment by Adams, Gupta, Wilson

Our book Six Sigma Deployment is intended for the leadership of an organization considering six sigma. Included is a proven implementation path with management considerations for each step. Ours is a focus on the deployment considerations for success.  Technical tools while important do not generally determine the success or failure of six sigma deployment.
