Our company implemented Lean Six Sigma after a period of rapid growth to become more process-focused, customer-focused, and data driven. The approach engaged and inspired our employees to improve our business processes and we achieved a 10X ROI in the first year. Full of case studies and practical examples from the author's many years of experience, Innovating Lean Six Sigma should top the reading list of any business leader.

The Lean Six Sigma initiative at Dr Pepper Snapple has been a major contributor to its success. In the last four years, their free cash flow has increased to an all-time high and the stock price has more than doubled, outpacing its peers by nearly 100%. Dr Pepper Snapple is now the Consumer Products leader in both inventory and capital productivity and has publicly reported over $200 million in cash savings all thanks to LSS. I was very blessed to establish and lead that initiative from 2011-2015 with the help of fantastic practitioners such as Kimberly Watson-Hemphill who with this book has provided a terrific framework for any executive looking to achieve breakthrough results from Lean Six Sigma.

The Lean Six Sigma principles described in the book have benefitted our business and have resulted in reducing our manufacturing times by over 50% which allowed us to almost double our output! This was accomplished by performing simple line balancing, continuous flow and using a takt rate board to monitor progress. We used these tools to balance the workload to allow for smoother flow and less downtime waiting on the next machine."
