Great real-world examples help develop the concepts. Also, the ability to pause and review specific areas over again were key to improving my problem-solving skills.

I truly enjoy GoLeanSixSigma.com's online training. I use the knowledge on a daily basis in my organization. I am spreading the word of Lean and Six Sigma and at the same time educating my peers in a more robust process improvement understanding. I have had excellent support from the GoLeanSixSigma.com team throughout my training.

Tracy O’Rourke has helped build the Process Improvement curriculum at the University of California, San Diego Extension. Participants of our Lean Six Sigma courses continuously praise her unique talent to transform their thinking processes. One student shared that "O'Rourke, is fantastic. She is an expert in the field of process improvement with a wealth of examples to draw from when teaching Lean Six Sigma concepts. She is enthusiastic about the topic, and shows connections to examples affecting our everyday lives."

Loved it. I learned new things and tools to improve my department.

Using Lean Six Sigma, we used Root Cause Analysis to identify the obstacles preventing our RNs from enrolling in schools and increased their Continuing Education rate from 2.7% to 10% within 12 months.

I have really enjoyed listening to the Just-In-Time Cafe Podcast. I've listened to several now, and regularly glean new information that will help me as a Lean Six Sigma practitioner. I appreciate the variety of ways the podcast addresses LSS issues. Tracy and Elisabeth keep the time engaging even for me as a new practitioner.

The authors’ approach the topic with a sense of fun and enthusiasm, providing a great high-level overview of Lean and Six Sigma tools. From how to identify opportunities for improvement all the way to putting controls in place to sustain improvements, The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit by Elisabeth Swan and Tracy O’Rourke is an excellent guide for anyone embarking on a process improvement journey.

One of the most appealing aspects of the toolkit is the user-friendly layout. The clear and engaging graphics make concepts easy to understand and links to templates and additional resources allow the reader to dive deeper into specific tools. This is a great guide for anyone looking to grow their knowledgebase to become a better problem solver.

Marc Myers - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I started a new job at a Construction Company right after getting my Yellow Belt Certification from GoLeanSixSigma.com 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.

Simply put, Tracy and Elisabeth have found a way to make Lean Six Sigma as engaging as it is informative! Where has this been? A few things that I especially like about this podcast - Pace: It moves along and makes me eager for more. Relevant: From tools to success stories, the content is relevant and practical. Engaging: Their energy is contagious! This podcast is a gift to anyone - expert or exploring, curious about Lean Six Sigma trends, wins and tools.

The session was great! Several of my team members had positive comments and they are already thinking of ways they can improve our processes. [FastPitch] really helped the team to understand how the process improvement tools can be applied.

Sempra Energy - GoLeanSixSigma.com

The team loved GoLeanSixSigma.com’s training, which helped build momentum for process improvement by empowering them to be fully onboard and enthusiastic about improving their process.

Diane Leatherbarrow - GoLeanSixSigma.com

The courses offered by GoLeanSixSigma.com are very easy to follow. Their online delivery has made it easy for us to train our personnel in different geographic locations. In addition, the templates and examples have helped a number of our team members start their improvement efforts on the right track!

PotashCorp

I was tasked with investigating a 30% loss of monthly production in a period of 6 months a particular calendar year, compromising a revenue loss of $200,000 compared to the same time period of that previous year. Using Lean Six Sigma, I created a SIPOC, Project Charter and Pareto Chart to identify the biggest issues that our team faced (lack of training).

We then used The 5 Whys and a Cause & Effect Diagram to learn that highly skilled workers were absent during that low production month and unskilled workers were absent during the high production month. We then used this data to streamline process and eliminate Non-Value Added Activities and were able to increase monthly production by 50% within 3 months.

I think the “aha” moment is during the process walk – just really seeing what each department has to do and what we can eliminate to help everyone work together better.

Super excited to say I just completed my Green Belt Training & Certification! This is my second online training and exam through GoLeanSixSigma.com. I find their courses very informational and on a side note, I love the webinars they offer as well.

I'll be working on a process improvement project with our office using the training I've received and I'm excited to be sharing my education with others who can benefit from it while working on our project! Thank you GoLeanSixSigma.com!

I love this podcast! I was looking for a Lean or Six Sigma podcast and found gold. Tracy and Elisabeth may be the best voices to present and educate the world on Lean Six Sigma! Not only is this show great for the subject matter expertise, but its production value as a podcast is also impressive. The format is entertaining and valuable. The book recommendations are always great and the news bulletin bring great real world context of LSS concepts in action. Can't say enough good things about this show.

My Lean Six Sigma Training has really been critical in providing me with the tools to look at a process and identify ways to have tools to improve that process.

Kristin Kielich - GoLeanSixSigma.com

GoLeanSixSigma.com is by far one of the most user friendly and client experience driven companies that I have ever encountered. I had my entire team gain their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt through them and the content made sense to everyone - from those with little to no experience with Six Sigma and to those who were experienced.

The interactive videos and training allow users to learn the material at their own pace and then to practically apply the information learned. We loved them so much that when my team and I were ready to begin our Black Belt course, we didn't even think twice about using GoLeanSixSigma.com again.

In addition to their fantastic training format, their client experience is second to none. Every single person I have had the pleasure of speaking/engaging with at GoLeanSixSigma.com has been a true delight. We will absolutely be returning to them for our next steps and when I have new team members come on board! I would give them 10 stars if it was an option.

With The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit, Tracy O’Rourke and Elisabeth Swan have delivered the missing link. Coming from the Innovation side of the house, I appreciate it when the process improvement side takes a more inventive approach to what is often a dry and studious topic. My clients need to innovate, but they also need to fix what’s broken. This plain-spoken, good-natured, graphical journey through Lean Six Sigma is just the ticket.

Mitch Ditkoff - GoLeanSixSigma.com

The web-based training from GoLeanSixSigma.com gives a lot of flexibility in terms of when you can take the courses and exams.

Each Lean Six Sigma project resulted in decreasing steps in a process, improving quality to customer satisfaction, and saved resources.

As an instructional designer with 30 years of experience in education and adult learning, this is one of the best e-learning experiences I have had the pleasure of completing.

Dave Stilchen - GoLeanSixSigma.com

GoLeanSixSigma.com’s FastPitch simulation helped us kick off our effort with a bang. Combining the online Green Belt Training with remote coaching allowed us to target a cleanliness project in one of our buildings. The project allowed employees to better understand how their performance was being measured and, in turn, to focus on areas that had the most impact on their performance.

By the end we managed to standardize processes, reduce supply costs, and significantly improve our member experience.

GoLeanSixSigma.com provided solid support and our improvement efforts are rapidly expanding. Overall amazing experience!

GoLeanSixSigma.com's Podcast presents problem-solving in logical, clear steps for ANYONE who needs, wants or is interested in solving process-related problems. Learn how to quickly and easily define a problem, isolate the causes of that problem, and develop a plan to solve the problem! If you need clarity in your work or personal life, let me introduce you to GoLeanSixSigma.com!

Just-in-Time Cafe Podcast Logo - GoLeanSixSigma.com

FastPitch is a great way to introduce the power of Lean Six Sigma Process Improvement! The simulation is engaging, interactive, and very-powerful. The trainers were very knowledgeable and well prepared. I would highly recommend FastPitch as a great team activity and introduction to Lean Six Sigma.

Tim Doss - GoLeanSixSigma.com

GoLeanSixSigma.com’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.

I was certified as a Green Belt through another organization about 2 years ago. The training was 100% onsite in-person training. GoLeanSixSigma.com’s online training course was far superior and covered more areas than the onsite. I am looking forward to moving on towards my Black Belt now and having our teams go through the Yellow Belt and Green Belt Training.

Dale Dean - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I am excited to recommend this guide to students who are ready to begin their process improvement journey! Tracy O’Rourke and Elisabeth Swan have an incredible ability to translate intricate concepts into fun and relatable learning experiences. The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit allows readers to go beyond the classroom and access Lean Six Sigma concepts with engaging, smart and entertaining examples.

Angela Miller

Your data tells a story. So you have to incorporate and interpret your data and see where it’s going to take you because it’s going to take you in a totally different direction.

Lesley Guertin - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I completed the Green Belt course shortly after transitioning out of the Military. It helped me quickly integrate into my organization and serve as an asset in our pursuit of providing the best service possible for our customers and citizens.

The Green Belt course was a great way to learn the tools and techniques that are being applied in the most competitive industries around the globe. It helped me to rapidly serve as an asset to my organization and quickly identify opportunities for improvement, then get to work.

I love the consistent use of Bahama Bistro to illustrate the points of the training. It makes the concepts easier to grasp when there are “real” examples.

San Diego State University Logo

I wondered how you were going to pull off putting Green Belt and Black Belt Training online. I am so impressed. It’s presented in a clear, distilled way including the stats pieces. You effectively integrated the soft skills of leadership/coaching/facilitation and broader change management. And the templates! Finally, the accompanying webinars are collaborative, comfortable and relevant. It exceeded my expectations. So... the overriding feedback is NICELY DONE.

Love this podcast. The discussions and explanations of Lean processes and tools are so great and beneficial to implementing daily!

Just-in-Time Cafe Podcast Logo - GoLeanSixSigma.com

The online courses offered by GoLeanSixSigma.com provide an interactive user interface to engage the learner and combine verbal and written materials very well. It is clear from the course content that there is a design and development team steeped in Lean Six Sigma expertise and keenly interested in the learning experience. Not only this, the courses are offered at incredibly competitive prices demonstrating that the team truly understands the concept of customer value!

In The Problem Solver’s Toolkit, Tracy and Elisabeth have put together an effective guide to help relative newcomers to Lean Six Sigma. It is a visual, easy-to-read book with a case study to demonstrate how Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques can be applied (a scenario that every reader can relate to).

Their decision to focus on the significant-few tools with the most impact benefits the reader by minimizing the risk of information overload. In addition to the visuals and case study, the book is filled with links to relevant blog posts, videos and templates. If you are in the early stages of your problem-solving adventure, pick up this fun, intuitive and easy to follow guide!

Mike Osterling - GoLeanSixSigma.com

As a working professional, I liked that the self-paced nature of the training allowed me to accomplish the training at my convenience.

I just listened to my first GoLeanSixSigma.com podcast episode. Really important Lean Six Sigma information presented in a light, humorous, really listenable format. Elisabeth and Tracy are real presentation and interview pros who make the powerful information presented so lively and entertaining. I love it. I'm going to listen to ALL the episodes!!!

Just-in-Time Cafe Podcast Logo - GoLeanSixSigma.com

GoLeanSixSigma.com has done it again! After 5 years in quality improvement and 2 years of Lean Six Sigma training, I still have so much to learn. I have struggled with clearly documenting a PDCA. It was always a painful process. After reading this book and following their template, the PDCA documents seemed to flow much smoother. The graphics and examples explain simple concepts simply, all from the light-hearted angle of a road trip with friends. Reading it cover to cover can be accomplished quickly but I know I will keep coming back to reapply these tools in new ways. This book is a business staple which I use more than the stapler on my desk.

Lynne Emmons

The Just-In-Time Cafe is the best podcast and on-the-go Lean Six Sigma training tool and update portal. Each time I listen, I find myself amazed at just how much LSS can do to improve all aspects of life! Each episode provides timely tips and ongoing LSS professional development. Anyone interested in LSS will benefit - from the rookie to the seasoned Master Black Belt!

Just-in-Time Cafe Podcast Logo - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I liked that it was concise and to the point. It used real life examples that were often tied to things I do on a daily basis.

San Diego State University Logo

Sometimes, when you’re solving a problem, you just need a tool, and to know if the tool you are choosing is the right one to get the job done! Whatever continuous improvement philosophy you follow, this book will help you select the right tool, guide you on how to use It correctly, and steer you away from pitfalls and potholes along the way! And, you’ll have fun following the folks at the Bahama Bistro as they use the tools to solve the problem they’re having with slow lunch service! Easy to read, and easy to use, this book is another great product from my friends at GoLeanSixSigma.com!

Karyn Ross - GoLeanSixSigma.com

Tracy O’Rourke and Elisabeth Swan have created and delivered an-easy-to-use, simple, yet thorough guide to Lean Six Sigma. Their approach to treat the journey of a Lean Six Sigma project like a travel adventure works in so many ways. They provide help via “Roadside Assistance” signs and warnings via the “Potholes and Detours” icons throughout the guide. Where readers want to dig deeper, they provide “Sightseeing and Additional References.” I highly recommend this guide for anyone beginning their Lean Six Sigma adventure!

Jerry Wright - GoLeanSixSigma.com

These episodes introduce you to Six Sigma and the many ways it can be the introduced. The podcast is highly emotive and positively-charged which brings the listeners intrigue to the fore. By introducing real scenarios as well helps understand the concept of Six Sigma and how it has become such an effective change mechanism in today’s businesses.

Just-in-Time Cafe Podcast Logo - GoLeanSixSigma.com

After about a year of struggling, we found GoLeanSixSigma.com’s training and their approach made it a lot easier to understand and more importantly showed our folks how Lean Six Sigma does apply to us.

The two hosts are so positive! Great to listen to them discuss apps and books. I like the spread of topics and they go to just the right depth. Interview subjects always have helpful insights. Happy that they've gone to twice per month. Want to hear more!

It was important for me, as the CEO, to participate in the FastPitch simulation with my top leaders. I got to see the lightbulbs go on as they participated in real processes improvements and they got to see that I am literally there for them - supporting their growth and investing in their problem solving skills.

The organization can only thrive with their renewed focus on removing waste and building our capacity to better serve our clients. It was a turning point for all of us.

Kurt Sheppard - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I really appreciated the learning experience across all the courses – from Lean Training to Green Belt Training to Black Belt Training. I am now really able to see how Lean Six Sigma works and have completed my training, project and certifications properly the first try. Thanks to the whole team at GoLeanSixSigma.com who have created such a good learning program. Thank you.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed your Green Belt course and believe it to be comprehensive and very easy to use.

We have found the resources and templates particularly valuable as we build our team and establish standard work for our projects.

FastPitch shakes up the established work process. Because it's “just a game,” FastPitch overrides boundaries, zooming in and then panning out in surprising ways on issues that inform every staff member regardless of rank. This produces a remarkable effect where all staff not only gain a true understanding of each other’s jobs, but the entire room morphs into an actual team invested in improving the outcome.

Brilliantly simple set up and execution – FastPitch is a perfect introduction to Lean Six Sigma.

Atlantic Public Media - GoLeanSixSigma.com

Tracy and Elizabeth have hit the nail on the head with this gem. Great examples and a unique style make for a guide which is fun to read and particularly ideal as a companion for online learners. There is solid coverage of just the right tools to help you succeed with real projects rather than an overabundance of tools seldom seen or used. The writing style and subject knowledge places this guide head and shoulders above any of its competitors. Finance and operations professionals will find this a great guide for implementing Lean Six Sigma in the workplace. Share it with your co-workers! Buy a second and add it to your corporate library.

Bill Zerter - GoLeanSixSigma.com

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

Whether you're looking to learn something new or resharpen your experiences with Lean, this course is a well thought out, paced learning that so many other e-learning providers get wrong. The concept of Bahama Bistro helps put the Lean practice into real world, simple examples instead of complex stories. Stopping and restarting where you left off is a seamless experience if you can't get it done all in one day.

I liked that this Green Belt course was self-paced – it's the best fit for a tight schedule. The training covered relevant topics in a very comprehensive manner, but didn't forget the fun factor! Many of the topics were covered in my past degrees in business informatics and management (years ago in very much depth). However, the way this course presents the topics provides you with the toolbox to instantly. It helps you think about all the opportunities to improve in your own company right away!

Dirk Klann - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I liked that the course was easy to launch and navigate. I LOVED the online support I received during the process as well. I had to contact customer support 3 times and each time I had a response within a few minutes.

GoLeanSixSigma.com’s courses have put our teams on the right continuous improvement path. I had a lot of fun working on my project and their templates made the process so much easier and enjoyable. I’m really looking forward to upcoming projects.

Ken Sheriff - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I started with GoLeanSixSigma.com's Yellow Belt Training and was immediately impressed with the format of the training, so I advanced to Green Belt Training. It was easy to follow because of the Bahama Bistro business model. I could easily see how the lessons from this simple paradigm could translate to more complex systems. GoLeanSixSigma.com's course allowed me to spend as much or as little time as needed on each section of the training. I have a great deal of confidence that what I learned through GoLeanSixSigma.com will be of significant value to me and my employers. I recommend GoLeanSixSigma.com to anyone interested in advancing their career.

One of the very few training courses I thoroughly enjoyed. It was engaging, informative and above all, streamlined! Content was clear and to the point with plenty of opportunity to apply the knowledge throughout the course before getting to the examinations! I count myself lucky that I decided to take my Green Belt certification here and look forward to exploring further training on this site as it becomes available!

My staff and I are very happy with the Green and Black Belt programs with GoLeanSixSigma.com. The material is easy to follow and the examples around Bahama Bistro are very helpful.

In 2016, a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) initiative was launched in Pitney Bowes Presort Services in support of our strategic goals of improving operational excellence and fostering the professional development of our employees.

Recently, nine individuals presented results from their projects to our Executive Staff. They highlighted how improvement opportunities were qualified, how root causes were unearthed and pulled into the light, how innovative improvements were identified, implemented, and verified.

Most importantly, they were able to quantify the impact those improvements have had on our organization and our Clients.

Very accessible, convenient, and entertaining way to learn Lean Six Sigma.

The web-based training from GoLeanSixSigma.com gives a lot of flexibility in terms of when you can take the courses and exams.

The previous training we went through was a week-long boot camp and there was no commitment to do any project afterwards. A week-long spent in class was too much class time and exhausting. Hence, we walked away with some knowledge but that knowledge didn’t quite stick since we didn’t apply the learning anywhere.

The second approach (with GoLeanSixSigma.com) was a training where we were applying the tools to a real project which solidified learning much better.

The Green Belt course helped me finely tune my problem-solving skills, and made me a better operations manager all-around. Without it, I wouldn’t have nearly the success – or fulfillment - in my job that I have now.

GoLeanSixSigma.com Square Logo

This Green Belt course is fantastic. I tried another Lean Six Sigma training program, and it was bogged down with too much statistical information for me to get into while keeping up with my workload. This program on the other hand was easy to understand and apply. It is increasing the productivity of my department by 30% in about 4 months.

I loved it! Everyone was in full participation and enthusiasm to tackle the simulation as best as possible without knowing each other before yesterday.

I have been involved in Lean and Six Sigma processes and tools in many different projects and positions but had never gotten certified. A Black Belt suggested your website for formal training and certification. I found the training to be well designed, thorough and easy to follow and understand. A good many Six Sigma training programs almost seem to try to confuse in order to impress. Your training used real world exercises, problems and solutions to easily understand the principles and tools available. Great job! I highly recommend your website and training process.

I engaged GoLeanSixSigma.com to introduce both Lean and Six Sigma to my top 30 managers. The three day FastPitch Workshop was invaluable to introduce the concepts, viscerally understand the basic approaches and implications, and engage our team on how to effectively lead the initiative within each manager's area of responsibility.

GoLeanSixSigma.com provided exceptionally knowledgeable instructors who provided examples applicable to our operating challenges and beyond. I highly recommend their approach as a cost-effective launch to a Lean change program across a company.

James E. Hyman

GoLeanSixSigma.com has always been best-in-class with their online learning offerings. They are able to distill the topics and capabilities into an easy-to-consume and enjoyable format that makes learning both productive and fun. They have done it again by following the same recipe with this companion guide. It is easy to consume and really helps readers understand what is important to know and allows them to take this knowledge back and apply it immediately to their projects.

I have participated in at least 2 other Lean Six Sigma training courses but they dragged on due to the dry presentation and irrelevant content. About a year ago I received the link for GoLeanSixSigma.com’s Yellow Belt course. I completed it in one day.

If you haven’t met GoLeanSixSigma.com's problem-solving team at Bahama Bistro, you’re in for a treat as the waitstaff demonstrates basic Lean Six Sigma tools while they improve their own lunch order process.

The Problem-Solver’s Toolkit is a banquet of valuable tools and practical advice, all served up for users on the go!

I really enjoyed this online training. The flexibility of completing at my own pace was great. It was well-organized, used clear and easy to understand language, and the continuing example of the Bahama Bistro was a great real-world application of the process. The one time I did require some assistance with logging in, the customer service was timely and very kind and helpful. I would happily recommend GoLeanSixSigma.com to anyone looking to expand their knowledge and help grow their careers.

I have participated in at least 2 other Lean Six Sigma training courses but they dragged on due to the dry presentation and irrelevant content. About a year ago I received the link for GoLeanSixSigma.com’s Yellow Belt course. I completed it in one day.

With GoLeanSixSigma.com’s training, my Quality Management Department was able to complete our first Lean Six Sigma Project in 6 months.

Pre-project, audits were taking about 12 hours to complete. After taking the Yellow Belt Training & Certification and applying the techniques taught, we were able to get that down to 4 hours to complete and increase our accuracy by 40%. As a bonus, employee satisfaction with my department went up to 100%.

The CEO, who is also my boss, saw the results from this project and put me in charge of a project to take Lean Six Sigma agency-wide. Since then, we have completed the FastPitch Workshop which has had the highest satisfaction scores of any training my department has hosted. I have subsequently completed the Green Belt course with my 3 other team members and am currently completing the Black Belt course.

If you are looking for a culture shift, GoLeanSixSigma.com’s trainings are the vehicle that can take you there. The results speak for themselves.

Tracy O’Rourke and Elisabeth Swan have put together an easy to understand and engaging “travel” guide that allows any level of learner to benefit from the tools, information, and “quick tips” included. It literally walks you step by step through the choosing of a project all the way to project completion. I see using this book as a field guide to help any level of learner through process improvement. I know my copy will be (digitally) dog-eared and sticky-ridden in no time. I recommend this toolkit to anyone who is working on process improvement.

Kara Cuzzetto - GoLeanSixSigma.com

I appreciate the help and the experience I had in this class very much. The class was very informational and interactive, which makes it a pleasurable and fun experience for everyone that takes it. This was a very good set of management tools that I know I will take with me throughout my entire career and know that it will help me very much.

UC San Diego Extension - GoLeanSixSigma.com

GoLeanSixSigma.com provides a wonderful combination of online and onsite training for my staff here at Cape Cod Child Development. They took our group through a proof-of-concept simulation and then guided them to select realistic and measurable projects that connect directly to our organization’s mission.

The once-a-month onsite Green Belt Workshop provided a framework and time for them to work on their individual projects while the entire group stayed engaged. With some one-on-one coaching, I am confident this group is going to bring their projects to complete success, while learning so many invaluable skills along the way. I’m looking forward to us being a first-rate example of how Lean Six Sigma can make a huge difference in the nonprofit world.

One of the most engaging training workshops that I have been involved in. Facilitators kept it moving and provided the perfect amount of information and role playing.

I thoroughly enjoyed your Green Belt course and believe it to be comprehensive and very easy to use.

We have found the resources and templates particularly valuable as we build our team and establish standard work for our projects.

I remember when I first got approval from my boss to pay for the Lean Six Sigma training, he said, “That’s manufacturing. How is that going to apply here?” And I said, “I can think of tons of ways that it could apply them. I mean I just finished the Yellow Belt and I had a long laundry list of things that I could improve or just quick changes.”

The real world examples accompanied by a great lecture and visuals made this training fun, entertaining, and most importantly, educational.

GoLeanSixSigma.com does a great job explaining Lean and Six Sigma in an easy to follow format – and that’s not an easy task. It’s what got me interested in their courses. The customer service they provide have exceeded my expectations. The Voice of the Customer is alive and well at GoLeanSixSigma.com.

Excellent podcast featuring real-world applications of Lean Six Signa in business and in life. Relevant, educational, and most importantly fun! The story from a Terre Haute, IN college campus is inspirational. Lean Six Sigma can improve both the planet and the bottom line!!

From app reviews to Lean Super Heroes, to the excellent interviews, the Just-In-Time Cafe Podcast is entertaining and informative. Did I mention how Elisabeth and Tracy are also pros at making the whole podcast experience fun? I'm hooked!

We tried bringing in Lean Six Sigma in the past and it wasn’t working, even though Continuous Improvement was designated as a core TVA competency. By combining GoLeanSixSigma.com's online training with onsite project support and a steady stream of success stories we managed to engage employees at every level in every plant.

I have participated in other similar trainings and none were as focused on actual business model improvement as this one. Excellent workshop and very much enjoyed.

The simulation and the interaction was the best.

We’re responsible for people becoming mobile which is a very big deal. I really needed to address our cycle time and my challenge was getting my leadership team onboard in order for anything to happen.

Putting them through the FastPitch Workshop gave them exposure to metrics and realistic problem solving by actually participating in improvement as opposed to sitting through a lecture. With the Champions workshop they all got so engaged that we immediately launched 5 initiatives and identified some critical immediate fixes. It was the jumpstart my team needed.

This podcast provides a healthy balance of various Lean Six Sigma topics across a variety of industries. I love how the format is the same each month and I can expect the same types of content. It's monthly production is just the right amount of information to stay up to date in the Lean Six Sigma world. My favorite part of the podcast are the interviews with Six Sigma leaders as they provide insights to their Six Sigma challenges and how they overcame them. High quality work!
