    I am a Master Black Belt and teach continuous improvement methods as part of a rotating school program here in Orange County, CA for business. As such, my teaching program needs resources badly; obviously, I use a lot of my own materials that I have accrued over the last 10-15 years since my certifications. However, I really need some more new books and materials on Kaizen, LSS, and CI in general

    I’d really love to have your new book to use in my program.

    Good Day Tom,

    While I have been a lean practitioner for a while, I was never certified. I am rectifying that now, studying and going for certification as a CSSBB as soon as a I have a project. Your book sounds like a definitive element of anyone’s Six Sigma and TQM library, and would help me immensely in my studies and efforts going forward. I would be honored to be considered for free copy, and the previous idea of having it autographed is great.

Much valuable work has historically gone undervalued and forgotten, simply because the time lag between engineering design and production implementation.

    My work has been in the after-sales product support services business (sometimes called the after-market).

    This business area is ripe for application of 6S tools as the support business is often not considered as a profit center in some firms. Yet service often returns a higher gross profit than product sales in the same firm.

    I am looking forward to seeing the material in the Third Edition as it applies to the product service business.

    Hi Tom – Congratulations on the new edition. The reason I would like to be selected to receive a free copy of this new publiction is becuse I have read everything I can get my hands on regarding six sigma and its methods. Some of my employers have pursued implementing six sigma processes while others have not. It is my hope that my next employer will embrace six sigma. As I am currently unemployed, I will not be able to afford to purchase your new edition which I regret as you are considered to be the foremost expert on this topic. I am hopeful that my next position will place me in a position where I may influence the company in this direction, but I will need to have as much information as possible to direct the implementtion of the six sigma processes in the future.

    Hi Tom,
    I am in search of a go-to reference for Six Sigma and everyone I talk to you recommends your handbook. I am currently unemployed and have reviewed the handbook online but can not purchase at this time. Thank you.

    I look forward to this 3rd edition of the handbook, and benefitting from the latest evolutionary changes to the Six Sigma body of knowledge that it will no doubt cover thoroughly.

    I have so many papers and pamphlets and pieces of information. A handbook is the right tool to have for projects and studying for Black Belt certification.

    Thank you for the great thought of sharing. Though I am from India, I would love to have this book. I have been a student of six-sigma for the last 6 yrs and would love to enrich my knowledge further by having this handbook. If not a hard copy, a soft copy can help too !!

    I have been following the progress and the sustainability of 6-Sigma since Dr. Mikel introduced the methodology at Ford Motor Company in 2000. Your revision to the Handbook is timely to reinforce the benefits at a time there are many questions on its value. Questions are being asked by companies on sustaining the methodology over time. Your Handbook becomes a good source to assist management make sound decisions.

    I would like a copy to prepare me to answer those questions.
