Six sigma+lean toolset mindset for successful implementation of improvement projects by Renata Meran( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current, second edition of this book reflects the 15 years ofpractical experience with the Six Sigma+Lean toolbox. It is a comprehensive collection of all the tools necessary for project work and running workshops when improving processes. All tools have been illustrated in a clear and comprehensible structure with examples and tips for applying the tools included. The chronology corresponds to the procedure of an improvement project comprising the steps D(efine), M(easure), A(nalyze), I(mprove) and C(ontrol). The most important innovation of this edition is the fact that it guides the user to select the appropriate tool using questions. The paradigm change from a Toolset to a Mindset has proven worthwhile in project work and ensures that corporate problems are addressed with the goal of achieving efficient solutions rather than having a large quantity of perfect tools to choose from. The efficiency factor of work in projects and workshops will therefore improve significantly. Through this paradigm change, connected withits unique structure, this book provides an effective tool not only for project and workshop leaders but also for the executives/sponsors involved who will be guided to solve the given task formulation quickly and in a sustainable way
Dangerous Davies, the last detective by Leslie Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dangerous Davies, you understand, earned his nickname in the same way that fat men nicknamed 'Tiny' earn theirs. But while he may not inspire dread in the hearts of London's bad guys, he is nevertheless on the side of right and good, and has the copper's badge to prove it. True, he does not tend to be his superiors' first choice when it comes to detecting crime: He is known as 'the last detective' not because there are no others like him, but because he is, in nearly every instance, the last boy picked for the team (although his dog does like him). With little actual work to do, Dange has plenty of time to pick through the cases that everybody else has forgotten. And when he stumbles across a real piece of ancient history, it looks like the perfect way to keep him out of trouble, and out of the real coppers' way."--Page 4 of cover
Country tales by H. E Bates( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these 26 lyrical stories, the author not only captures the essence of a vanished rural past, but also the hearts and minds of country people. Most of the stories, like "Waiting Room", "The Gleaner" and "Cloudburst" celebrate human resilience and courage, while "Little Fish" ridicules pomposity. "Never" embodies a timeless dilemma: the yearning for freedom, and the fear of achieving it. "Story Without An End" and "The House With The Apricot" are about the joy and poignancy of love, evoking a bittersweet nostalgia that suffuses all of these stories
