Choosing the BEST Lean Sigma Training Provider for YOU


A simple search on Google will quickly reveal just how many choices there really are in the Lean Sigma marketplace. With so many choices to pick from and with each one screaming “pick me…pick me”, which one should you trust with the future of your company. Whether you are looking for a consultant or an online training provider, the same basic rules apply:

Make it fit your budget

Lean Sigma training and certification can go from hundreds to tens of thousands of pounds. Let’s face facts, whether you’re choosing the most expensive or the least expensive training provider... you will still learn the basic principles of Lean Sigma. Remember, whether you own a Ferrari or take the bus, you will undoubtedly be moving closer to your goal.

Will they just train you or will they train AND certify you?

Many training providers are just that… TRAINING providers. In a job market that treats you as “expendable”; it’s a safe bet to go with someone that offers certification.

What about the course content?

One of the most important tools for any Certified Black Belt is access to ready to use training and presentation materials. Many ‘Online’ Certification programs will simply take your money, get you to read a very thick book and take a series of exams, followed by a project summary. After this, you will receive your certificate. All well and good, until you need to go out and put all this into practice. This course comes complete with all the material you study in powerpoint format ready to download and use to train your own Green belts or present the concepts to stakeholders within your clients business.  

Our course content is available 100% online AND all course materials can be downloaded to be studied at your leisure. (All modules will be distributed with one user licence, so that you can transfer all content onto your own company slide template for immediate use).

Consultant or Online Training

In today’s fast-paced world classroom-based instruction is becoming extinct quicker than the Dodo. Online training is a must for any busy professional. But are they better than a consultant? Is reading a Spanish dictionary better than going to Spain? Having the direct communication with a consultant definitely has its advantages. Does it justify the £6,000+ cost difference? Many market trends are indicating a serious decline in consultant training. Many organizations today are more than eager to reduce the risk of any losses that could occur. But with the advent of the internet, the learning gap certainly does not seem to justify the price gap.
