"The Rath & Strong Six Lean Booster course is the best course I've seen that provides Lean instruction in a Six Sigma DMAIC format and is designed for service organizations. The course is tightly aligned with DMAIC and provides practical illustrations and opportunities to apply the Lean content in realistic service case studies. The course excels at showing Six Sigma professionals when and how to apply Lean in the context of DMAIC. It also has running case studies and application exercises that help students clearly understand how Lean can be applied throughout a DMAIC project as well as providing them practice in that application in a service context. This is a very “hands on" class. Students will be asked to develop a current state and future state Value Stream Map and a cell.

Finally (and very importantly), the course equips students to go out and make an impact. One example: Using what was learned in the course, one of our Black Belts lead a project at Quest Diagnostics that has been able to dramatically reduce the time to report test results on a critical maternal screening test. It started at 10 days; now we're measuring it in hours. Patients (and doctors) anxiously awaiting these results are very pleased."
