Quality Tools in categories
Looking at the various quality tools mentioned in the CMQ-OE body of knowledge (BoK), and adding the excellent index - table of contents in Nancy Tague's book "The Quality Toolbox 2nd Ed." (Quality Press H1224), I have compiled a spreadsheet that can be sorted to look at the various ways our tools can be used. I would appreciate any comments this group has on this. Not all of Tague's tools are addressed in the CMQ-OE BoK, and not all in the CMQ-OE are addressed in Tague's book.

This is good work, Doug. Is the suggestion that the CMQ/OE text should contain all the tools in Nancy's text? I believe her text is also part of the CMQ/OE preparation reference list. If I am reading the matrix correctly, your work also shows that the CMQ/OE does not now include some very basic LEAN tools that I would expect to have shown up in the last BoK update for CMQ/OE. If not, I hope they show up in the current survey responses. 
No, the CMQ-OE text and BoK does not need all the Tague tools. It may help us to use Tague's organization method for helping members connect to her excellent materials.

Agreed that we need not recreate every tool for CMQ/OE BoK. It is good to reference other resources for additional tools appropriate to specific opportunities.
