What people are saying

process improvement

It is a great course about process improvement including both Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.

This courser provides valuable insights into the Process Improvement initiatives.

An excellent course for process improvement, the bad thing is that the lessons are very long almost 30 minutes should be shorter and more or look as you improve in the online part A good course a must for process specialist.

This is a comprehensive course on process improvement with practical examples.

I have had taken lean six sigma training from private organisations earlier, but this course offers definitely more insight to process improvement, which comes from the empirical research experience of Dr. Anand.

I would strongly recommend this course to all process improvement professionals.

Very good course for general process improvement in business.

A brilliantly put together course for anyone who wants to learn about process improvement and the associated Lean and Six Sigma frameworks.Concepts are explained in a crisp and easy to understand manner.

Complete and useful course about Process Improvement.

It's really interesting the approach on this topic, which is very focused on the real aspects of the process improvement and not only a list of techniques.

Great review of concepts to refresh lean and six sigma, and process improvement in GENERAL.Expected deeper and more practical information (case studies, maybe a project in a module instead of a quiz, etc.)

Was looking for detailed service industry (financial) applications of process improvement knowledge.

Good overview of the basic tools that are used in various process improvement processes.

Enough info to help you move from having general ideas of how to improve processes to actually having the tools and knowledge to approach process improvement methodically and scientifically.

six sigma

Great intro to statistical control and six sigma!

Some topics were even better explained as in my "real" Six Sigma education, even they were mentioned more tools.

You can learn, also, about the philosophy and the history behind the Lean Six Sigma An introductory course to Lean Six Sigma and DMAIC.

Real applications such as six sigma and lean concept are very little linked to the content this course is giving.

too long

he also talks too much about insignificant things making the videos too long where you lose focus.

Videos were far too long.

The last module gets a bit too in depth for me but overall good information that translates Great course but I think It needs more complete practical situation The lectures were too long and failed to keep my interest Great syllabus for process management..

gopesh anand

Gopesh Anand is such a technical darling.

Dr. Gopesh Anand is an excellent orator who explains even most difficult areas of the course with ease.

better if

Would be better if the videos were shorter and separated in sections of 6 or 7 minutes rather than watching a 30 minute video in one go.

The delivery would be much better if the instructor would put himself in the background and the focus be reoriented on a whiteboard style walk-through of the equation at hand.
