STANFORD TENNIS Pro Applies Six Sigma Quality Principles for the First Time to Help Athletes Achieve Near Perfection in Sports
Former Stanford Tennis USPTA Pro, USTA Official and Six Sigma Champion Steven Falk’s groundbreaking book, “Six Sigma Tennis,” which uses proven quality management principles to achieve athletic excellence, is now available online and through select stores around the world.
In “Six Sigma Tennis,” leading expert Steven Falk explains how the improvement processes major corporations use to ensure 99.99 percent quality can now be used by tennis players of all levels to achieve 99.99 percent success rates within three hours.
“I have been told by sports and Six Sigma experts from around the world that this is the first time these processes have been applied to athletics and that the book will likely change athletics, education and sports forever,” he said. “I’ve seen fantastic results with my own students, and I’ve received feedback from coaches, educators, parents and students in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Ireland, Spain and Switzerland having the same success with ‘Six Sigma Tennis’.”
Falk’s easy to follow methodology is drawn from his experience with applying the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards, Six Sigma quality improvement processes and Zero Defects strategies in large corporations, such as Carlson Companies, General Electric, Lockheed Martin and Siemens. He began applying Six Sigma approaches as a tennis coach
with Stanford Tennis in Palo Alto, Calif., which not only helped players, but also assisted instructors and coaches with their own students.
“What I love about this is that teaching these principles to children or adults not only gives them the tools they need to succeed at tennis,” Falk said, “but they also can use them to succeed at life.”
