Strength-based Lean Six Sigma is a new way of approaching process improvement that combines the best practices of two established methodologies to generate a new approach in order to help you develop and deliver increased high performance in any organization. It is the first book to use approaches in business improvement as well as organizational change for optimum organizational performance and improved agility.

This book is the first on integrating Lean Six Sigma and Appreciative Inquiry. David does a masterful job blending the principles and processes of Appreciative Inquiry with the rigour of Lean Six Sigma to influence innovation and sustainable results in organizations. The book represents an insightful contribution to both disciplines.
