From the Back Cover:

Leadership excellence that will guide your organization through a new age of challenge and complexity

“The concepts in this book can be of significant benefit in supporting your success and helping us meet the growing need for great leaders in every organization and at every level.”-W. James McNerney, Jr., chairman, president, and chief executive officer, The Boeing Company, from the foreword

While Six Sigma and Lean efforts are driving impressive results in companies worldwide, they have had minimal impact on how well the vast majority of leaders guide their organizations. In The Six Sigma Leader, noted author and business change consultant Peter S. Pande advocates for a higher standard of leadership effectiveness through the foundational principles of Six Sigma.

The Six Sigma Leader offers compelling, instructive advice for improving your own flexibility and focus, achieving seemingly contradictory objectives, and overcoming the pitfalls that impede so many leaders and their organizations. A Six Sigma Leader is a model for the type of executive or manager anyone can aspire to be-regardless of whether your business “does” Six Sigma or not. The Six Sigma Leader offers insights that can be applied immediately to the current challenges and opportunities faced by you and your organization.
