Dave Stilchen -’s Yellow Belt Training & Certification helped my Quality Management Department reduce our audit time from 12 hours to 4 hours and increase accuracy by 40%. As a bonus, employee satisfaction with my department went up to 100%.

Lynne Emmons

Using Lean Six Sigma, I streamlined the process and eliminated Non-Value Added Activities which increased monthly production by 50% within 3 months.

Wesley Tam -

I started a new job at a Construction Company right after getting my Yellow Belt Certification from and was able to begin using the tools. I used Lean to identify waste, create a visual job board and increased my team’s productivity by 30% – I was also given a pay raise just two months after starting my job.’s Yellow Belt Training & Certification was very useful at our hospital as it helped us use Lean Six Sigma Tools to successfully improve the care we provide to our patients by increasing chemotherapy patient education & screening by 40% and improve communication hand-offs between nurses regarding patients in their care.

At the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, we learned to use process mapping and work standardization techniques in our Specialty Care Clinic to decrease the wait time of appointments by creating a separate clinic for new patients. This enabled us to also serve more existing patients needing wound care.
