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.

"I would like to express my appreciation for the opportunity to participate in such a well thought out class. The instructor was excellent and brought to the table not only the expert knowledge of the subject but real life experiences. I am not the only one with these sentiments. I have been in other organizations that have utilized different approaches to training its staff. The class has been the most effective one by far and to have a project that means something to the organization emphasizes the importance of the tool and this way of thinking. Again, much appreciation for being involved in this training! [Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt]"

"Through the continuous improvement training we not only were able to get a number of people certified as quality experts, but the projects they did as part of their class helped us to make a number of improvements.  The leadership development training has also been very appreciated and extremely well-done.  The training was very engaging, practical, and has helped us continue to develop our leadership and overall organizational culture.”
