The material and test are easy to access. What I really like is the material and test are good for 1 year to complete. I would recommend goleansixsigma to anyone who wants to learn at their own pace.

Enjoyed this training and can see a lot of value in implementing the Lean Six Sigma methodology. Very user friendly delivery platform.

Very informative, easy to follow and retain knowledge, also gives great examples

Great course- loved the interactive slides. There is a wealth of information to absorb, but Go Lean Six Sigma puts everything in an interactive, easy to understand format.

Lean Six Sigma made simple. Would highly recommend!

Good content and a simple to follow process for learning the tools of Lean Six Sigma

Super helpful planning and implementation tools. Course was easy to follow and very well organized. I liked that I would work at my own pace. Would recommend to anyone looking for boost in process/project management skills.

Good self-paced program that includes great examples.

Excellent course, lots of information, but easy to follow.

Very nicely organized, easy to use and informative.
