Good to learn basic knowledge tools to improve culture in organization and improve professional skills .
Just completed my Lean certification after doing my Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt a little while ago, and I really enjoyed both courses. Easy to understand material, no trick questions in the exams, and the Bahama Bistro demos along the way really help see the practical side of the learning.
Would highly recommend!
Superb! ... Great amount of information, clearly communicated. The certificate was exactly what I was hoping for.
Very straightforward. and presented in a manner that everyone can understand.
I so appreciate the accessibility of this training -- the examples were well chosen to flesh out the concepts, the bits of humor tossed in lightened the appearance of the amount of work involved in following the different processes. I am in total alignment with the collaborative, non-finger-pointing approach to addressing systems that are not adding value. Highly recommend this training and all the tools that GoLeanSixSigma make available.
Great course, highly recommend!
Chock full of concepts that are accessible to apply to work and life -- thank you!!
