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.
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 non-profit world.
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. Plus, I really enjoyed our classroom training since we had an awesome instructor. I think it was super helpful to have a coach who helped through the project work.
