Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The text is well organized. ... The book’s most important contribution is the way it describes the required procedural steps ... . The charts and the tables included assist in explaining the covered materials. The examples and templates shown can help professionals to put a fast pace performing assessments and improving process effectiveness. The human factors that affect assessments and the impact of the organization’s dominating culture are given sufficient importance. The methods are presented in a well-organized manner ... ." (John Sarivougioukas, Computing Reviews, January, 2008)
