This book grew out of my notes on a mountain of presentations, handouts, loose sheets etc. etc. lying on my desk at home and the title was originally “Six Sigma- Pearls of Wisdom”. Upon hearing the title my wife burst into hysterical laughing and exclaimed “Pearls of wisdom! You must be joking.... They are just a bunch of incoherent scribbles!”. As men tend to do when dealing with similar marital discussions, I stuck to my guns and gathered all my little pearls of wisdom into this little book. Then as women tend to do when dealing with similar marital discussions, my wife named it “Six Sigma-Survival Scribbles”.
