Leadership is a popular topic for book buyers, with people often wanting to know how leaders can engage workers and develop a lean culture.
A Guide to Lean Six Sigma Management Skills is one of our new books in this area. It is written by Dr. Howard Gitlow, executive director of the Institute for the Study of Quality, Director of the Master of Science degree in Management Science, and a Professor of Management Science,
Gitlow focuses on how leaders can help workers understand their role in the big picture, increase enjoyment of their work and achieve peak performance.
He presents theories, tools and methods from the view of what he describes as the “worker bees” so managers have the best understanding of the leadership required.
And he discusses how Lean Six Sigma can be used to constantly review internal processes and continuously improve working conditions. This is a useful book for anyone who serves as a lean change agent.
