"This is the book that I've been looking for until now! Why? Because it exactly guide us to the practical methodology and concepts that any business enterprises and firms would seek for. From my experience of the business practitioner and quality trainer, it is highly vital to integrate and harmonize 'the hard part,' which helps to improve the current processes and products, tackling the vital few causes of the problems, and 'the soft part,' which helps to obtain the buy-in form the key stakeholders and the employees for a change. This book is a wonderful roadmap to innovate a company dynamically in terms of the productivity, the interactive comm unication and the customer satisfaction."
— Takashi Masumoto, regional Six Sigma Leader and Six Sigma trainer, General Electric, Japan (As of June 30, 2003)
"This is a breakthrough synthesis of the best of cutting-edge practices for improving organizational performance.

He describes an integrated, comprehensive approach that achieves greater results by building ownership for the change throughout the organization, while implementing process improvement methods and tools, and building the core competencies required for implementation. The result is a roadmap for successful change that will work the first time around, start producing results quickly, and continue to work reliably into the future of the organization."
