Our Difference

We use a blended approach to learning, combining the use of outstanding on-line modules, instructor led classes, and applied project work.  Participants learn at their own pace and time while completing the on-line modules.  The on-line modules can be viewed as many times as participants like within a six month window and the on-line modules have check-points so participants can assess their knowledge retention.  The instructor led portions emphasize key topics, provide hands-on exercises, and address how the participants may use in their workplace and environment.  The applied project work is facilitated by the instructor and provides participants with a practical, hands-on experience, working with a project of their choosing and of value in their workplace.  This approach not only solidifies learning but provides for an immediate return on investment.

Results

You expect increased customer retention, cost savings, better vendor/supplier relationships, projects to come-in on-time and within budget, better use of resources, more engaged workers, increased productivity, better decision making, increased profitability.

"Recently we worked with Madison College to improve our problem solving and project execution skills through Lean Six Sigma and Project Management training. Madison College offers a unique blend of on-line and classroom instruction that better balances employee time. Their technique allows participants to learn and apply the knowledge they are learning while still doing their regular job.  Their technique also provides for a deeper, more practical and applied learning experience along with an immediate return on our investment."
-Jason Hunn, Continuous Improvement Manager, Madison-Kipp Corporation.
