"I have been working with JP and his team for close to two years. We've planned and implemented two significant changes to our operation in that time, as well as spent time aligning the team here in how to better prepare for success with these concepts as we develop more products. These activities included process mapping, analysis, layout enhancement and implementation. We have also partnered with LSSE to start a greenbelt training initiative, that we expect will lead to more structured approaches to problem solving in many areas of our business. JP and his team preach basically the Toyota Model. More importantly, the way LSSE approaches the process allows for, welcomes, and encourages tweaks to the Toyota concept that any individual business may need. We've been able to streamline our operations with a significant throughput time reduction. The system forces you to, find questionable conditions earlier and get things corrected. As I suspect all of us would, we had some employees at the start of the process give the "this won't work" whisper. One of the most gratifying points in the process was when one of those folks, who had mentioned to me directly the skepticism, came back to tell me... and I am quoting. "This really works... never would have believed it, but this is working". LSSE has done a fantastic job for us. We are very happy with what we have been able to achieve. "

"LSSE helped our company immensely. We were faced with a very challenging situation, where one of our most critical customers was planning to move a product line to China. We were selling the product for around $7, and the customer wanted to buy it for $4. LSSE came into our shop and conducted a Kaizen event on the product line. With their leadership and guidance, we were able to determine a proper pace for all the activities involved with making the product. We moved the manufacturing machines into a new configuration, creating an ideal flow for the product. We added secondary operations, including cleaning and packaging, in the manufacturing cell. With proper staffing, we were able to significantly improve the output, and our costs went down dramatically. We now sell the product for around $4, with a decent margin. More importantly for the future of our American based business, we have successfully won a pricing competition against a Chinese company! Mountainside Medical is a very satisfied client of LSSE. We have done additional events since the one mentioned, and we are always highly satisfied. We give them the highest of recommendations. "

The topics covered during the training were very much aligned to the knowledge and skills required for a Master Black Belt to advise and facilitate sustainable continuous improvement efforts. In addition, the shared examples and case studies in both manufacturing and transactional environments along with the discussions on common pitfalls and how to overcome them was instrumental to my increased understanding of the topics.

"LSSE delivered well put together presentations which covered several statistics topics that built upon each other in a logical order. We had a class of over 20 people with experience ranges from first timers to experts and everyone was able to learn a lot and was excited to use the new statistics tools. JP is also a great presenter who explains these difficult subjects well and keeps the class involved with several exercises. I highly recommend this class from Lean Six Sigma Experts."

"Our team received Lean Practitioner Training from LSSE. While the course content is solid, the LSSE instructor makes the difference. He has the ability to engage each student in the class to enable collaboration and learning. He was very knowledgeable and was able to work with student from different backgrounds. The course structured very well and I would highly recommend LSSE to anyone interested in improving processes."

"The LSSE training we received was well structured, taught well, and incorporated a nice balance between practical reasoning, graphical analysis and analytics. I've attended many other statistical/Minitab training courses and this is the first one to challenge the team to listen to what the data is saying AND challenge the output with a practical, business approach (time, materials, overhead, scrap, lead-time etc.). It doesn't matter what the data says if it's impractical/impossible from a business sense. LSSE provided excellent training documentation/references the team will use for years to come. I strongly recommend LSSE to anyone wishing to improve their skill sets and advance their team. As a result of our positive experience, I have recommended LSSE to our sister facilities throughout the US and will leverage their expertise in the future."
- MIKE STEVENS
Engineering Manager - Accellent Inc.
"LSSE training is by far the most efficient way to learn statistical techniques and how to use them properly. The structured approach teaching the fundamentals of statistical techniques and how to utilize the techniques with Minitab are presented clearly with obvious implications for practical use. I use the skills I learned in the training daily and use Minitab with the appropriate statistical technique to provide justified rationale for conclusions during root cause investigations, process capability evaluations, and to evaluate sampling plans based on consumer and producer risks. Great class!"
