Minitab Inc. has agreed to include Rath & Strong’s two latest publications--Who’s Fault Is It Anyway?, and Rath & Strong’s Guide to MINITAB: Release 14--in Minitab’s companion textbook list, available on the Minitab Web site.

Whose Fault Is It Anyway: A Modern Fable About Six Sigma is written to be entertaining and informative. This concise Rath & Strong book is a simple, effective and enjoyable way to spread the powerful message of Six Sigma. The fable provides an easy way to experience what it really feels like to implement Six Sigma and run a project.

The Guide To MINITAB: Release 14 teaches users how to use MINITAB software in a two-level approach designed to enhance the learning experience:

  • Through a step-by-step investigative methodology that allows Six Sigma/DMAIC teams to work toward root case identification in a systematic way.
  • Via a Six Sigma/DMAIC case study and data file that allow the team to work through Rath & Strong’s investigative methodology and master both the methodology and MINITAB statistical tools.
