Project Portfolio Selection for Six Sigma e-Book

by William D. Mawby

This book focuses on the essential, but somewhat neglected, topic of the selection of Six Sigma projects. There is little material available on the process of making Six Sigma projects an integral part of the bottom line of a company, and often this is a weak point in many fledgling improvement programs. The methods presented here will not deal specifically with project management or with team development methods, but will concentrate solely on the proper selection of the projects.
