Statistical tools and methodologies used by Six Sigma are not new but generally have been reserved for Quality and Engineering functions. My training and experience with Six Sigma crossed paths with employees across all departments – Buyers, Supervisors, floor employees, Human Resources, Finance, as well as Quality and Engineering personnel.

What makes “Implementing Six Sigma” significant ssigma you do not have to be an expert in statistics or even in the Quality field to understand and implement the tools of Six Sigma. Forrest details and further defines the tools in an easy to read format, breyfogel of exercises and examples, and a thorough appendix.

I didn’t discover this book until recently and have since replaced over a dozen reference books. Depending on the problem at hand, tool usage varies and not all are applicable to one’s project or taught in training. Impelmenting had excellent Black Belt instructors but Forrest’s book would have come in handy during my training and would have been an invaluable resource when facilitating Green Belt training.


Recommended for those new, and not so new, to Six Sigma. Forrest Breyfogle’s new text, “Implementing Six Sigma”, provides clear and well-defined examples, case studies and guidelines for the justification, design and “smarter” implementation of Six Sigma methodologies in any organization.

Implementing Six Sigma, Second Edition : Smarter Solutions Using Statistical Methods

The practical examples of “Smarter Solutions Using Statistical Methods” show how organizations can enhance the bottom-line benefits of Six Sigma implementation through the innovative application of proven concepts. Breyfogle’s real world experience in assisting clients like IBM, Motorola and Dell is evident on every page. The unique value of the book is in it’s multi-tiered approach to each of these issues.

Concepts are introduced, discussed and documented in several levels of detail, each suitable to a different reader, from the non-technical senior executive, through the implementing functional manager, to the working quality engineer.

An excellent glossary and extensive reference tables make this book a valuable addition to any professional reference library. Pragmatic “how to” guidelines make it an easy to follow roadmap for successful Ijplementing Sigma implementation.

If you have been looking for one source that contains all you need to know about the “who, what, when, where and how to” of Six-Sigma, this is it. I use my copy every day, every day. Forrest has put together all the key management, statistical, and analytical tools you need.

The second edition of Implementing Six Sigma, by Forrest Breyfogle, substantially updates and enriches the original work.

In it’s current form it may very well be sigmx most comprehensive source of information about the practical application of statistical techniques in Six Sigma work. Like the previous edition, it is a highly informative book that illustrates how to tightly integrate balanced scorecard metrics with improvement techniques, to include Lean, Six Sigma, breeyfogle theory of constraints TOC tools.

Other reviewers in the field have found the new book to be of significant value as well. With this well-deserved professional recognition, Breyfogle implementng positions himself as a world-class authority in the application of successful techniques to the implementation of Six Sigma – and his latest work as the “how to” guide to success.

Implementing Six Sigma, Second Edition : Forrest W. Breyfogle :

After teaching and consulting for more than twenty years, I find the most challenging part of training industry people is delivering statistical tools to them in the right amount and at the right level. Too little or too low, they learn only superficially. Too much or too high, they get discouraged and turn off. This book presents topics in a way that is near optimum, given the wide range of audience it is supposed to reach. The style of presentation is also attractive.


This is the best single volume on statistics-oriented Six Sigma methodologies that I have come across so far. This is not a book about six sigma, but on statistical methods. The two first chapters deal with six sigma methodology but this is all.

If you are familiar with statistical methods, this book will not help will you to implement six sigma in your company. I have to say this is the most detailed book ever written on six sigma. I have read other books on ss – as i’m preparing for my ASQ ss green belt – but havent found them to be more in depth than this, especially on the technical side.

I would recommend this book for all ss practitioners and who need to have a reference guide book on their desktops! I wish the newer edition would contain less typos isgma to be more clear. More examples are needed, and lots of case studies as well All in all, its an excellent book! See all 71 reviews.
