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 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.
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 simulation 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.
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.
The simulation and the interaction was the best.
I loved it! Everyone was in full participation and enthusiasm to tackle the simulation as best as possible without knowing each other before yesterday.
Many useful tools were provided to us that will help us stand apart from the competition.
I thought this was a great and interactive way to learn a new way of improving a process.
Awesome! Relatable with every tool introduced. Brought a new group together.
The information and delivery were outstanding. I often find myself saying at the end of trainings, “This wasn’t useful,” but this training was extremely useful and I’m sure I will apply the tools in my leadership.
Loved it. I learned new things and tools to improve my department.
