"George makes Six Sigma simple. His solutions from real life about how to deal with individuals and teams could be applied to Six Sigma teams as well as to teams who have never heard of Six Sigma and who just want to be effective. The book is like a George Eckes session: you learned a lot, it seems so simple, and you had far more fun than you thought you would in a session about Six Sigma. George gets the people part of Six Sigma!"
Six Sigma and Metrics
"For any Six Sigma team leader who has struggled in managing a dysfunctional team member or surviving the ′storming′ phase of team development, Mr. Eckes offers time–tested, pragmatic approaches that work! The two chapters on ′preventions′ and ′interventions′ alone are worth the price of any number of facilitation training sessions by bringing together the best ideas in one place with palpable examples. Mr. Eckes′s ′best practice′ of summarizing key learnings at the end of each chapter makes this an easy–to–use reference tool for the already overworked Six Sigma professional."
