Writing for executives and initiative leaders, Stephen A.

Zinkgraf helped lead Larry Bossidy’s pioneering Six Sigma program at AlliedSignal–he and his team have participated in more than fifty Six Sigma launches. In this book, he reveals best practices for leading every step of the process. You’ll learn how to identify, prioritize, and charter breakthrough projects...choose the right partners... define roles...build and train teams...mitigate risks...implement effective metrics...and “evangelize” the organization. Then, after you’ve launched, Zinkgraf shows how to improve your program–and use HR, IT, and other business levers to extend your impact.
