Start your Lean Six Sigma road trip right now!

Hello, Travelers! You are embarking on a journey to build your problem-solving muscles. Congratulations! Let the fun begin!

Think of this as a real road trip – a journey through the world of continuous process improvement. The road trip can be fun and filled with purpose. It can be life-changing and paradigm-shifting, but it can also be painful.

You can be an active participant or a “passenger,” you can make this trip alone or you can find others to travel with you. Having companions enriches your experience, and you get to use the carpool lanes!

Like most road trips, there’s a roadmap but that’s no guarantee against travel mishaps. You might get stuck behind a Winnebago for a while, hit a pothole, get a parking ticket or have a surprise run-in with the police!

We’ll provide roadside assistance and help you navigate the detours. You and your companions can sight-see if things look interesting, or you might need a pit stop to refresh at the Bahama Bistro.

The Bistro team will be with you every step of the way with helpful examples, enlightening infographics and of course, the occasional snack.

People Love Our Book! has done it again! After 5 years in quality improvement and 2 years of Lean Six Sigma training, I still have so much to learn. I have struggled with clearly documenting a PDCA. It was always a painful process. After reading this book and following their template, the PDCA documents seemed to flow much smoother. The graphics and examples explain simple concepts simply, all from the light-hearted angle of a road trip with friends. Reading it cover to cover can be accomplished quickly but I know I will keep coming back to reapply these tools in new ways. This book is a business staple which I use more than the stapler on my desk.

The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit is exactly what my Green Belts need. We will always be on a process improvement journey, so how great to have a travel guide! The infographics alone are perfect teaching tools. Three cheers for Elisabeth and Tracy for providing such easy access to the building blocks of Lean Six Sigma!

I am excited to recommend this guide to students who are ready to begin their process improvement journey! Tracy O’Rourke and Elisabeth Swan have an incredible ability to translate intricate concepts into fun and relatable learning experiences. The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit allows readers to go beyond the classroom and access Lean Six Sigma concepts with engaging, smart and entertaining examples.

In The Problem Solver’s Toolkit, Tracy and Elisabeth have put together an effective guide to help relative newcomers to Lean Six Sigma. It is a visual, easy-to-read book with a case study to demonstrate how Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques can be applied (a scenario that every reader can relate to).

Their decision to focus on the significant-few tools with the most impact benefits the reader by minimizing the risk of information overload. In addition to the visuals and case study, the book is filled with links to relevant blog posts, videos and templates. If you are in the early stages of your problem-solving adventure, pick up this fun, intuitive and easy to follow guide!

Sometimes, when you’re solving a problem, you just need a tool, and to know if the tool you are choosing is the right one to get the job done! Whatever continuous improvement philosophy you follow, this book will help you select the right tool, guide you on how to use It correctly, and steer you away from pitfalls and potholes along the way! And, you’ll have fun following the folks at the Bahama Bistro as they use the tools to solve the problem they’re having with slow lunch service! Easy to read, and easy to use, this book is another great product from my friends at!

by Sebastian Richard Danful on The Problem-Solver's Toolkit

Prior to purchasing "The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit: A Surprisingly Simple Guide to Your Lean Six Sigma Journey!" I had started a Lean Six Sigma project in the school where I teach. However, I was having great challenges especially in putting the pieces together to be presented to management.

Then the breakthrough came when I heard about the ebook during one of Goleansixsigma's webinars. Without hesitation I got myself a copy.

The Toolkit did not only guide me in my presentation, it also elucidated on key areas in the DMAIC methodology I had ignored or wasn't aware of. I really got value for money, and the experience motivated me to further purchase the Go-Getters Guide to Coaching DMAIC. And I tell you what, I was wowed with the free gift, the Go-Getters Guide to DMAIC.

There are great reasons why I would recommend this toolkit to six sigma professional;

First, it is easy to read and understand. Second, the additional templates provided facilitates learning and application. Third, it's fun and colourful, just like it's authors Tracy and Elisabeth. Finally, it's affordable and available. So what are you waiting for? Go get your copy now!!!!!!!
