"Starting the LSS Yellow Belt qualification tied in nicely with a pilot project we were initiating. LSS really helped not only give some direction to the project, but forced us to think about the demonstratable benefits we were going to get from the project. Projects are often undertaken on 'gut feel', but LSS gives you tools to clearly quanitfy cost savings and benefits which are often overlooked. This resulted in a successful pilor project which is currently being rolled out to other areas."
Will Chicken, Head of Operations, University of Edinburgh Business School - November 2018
"The course has been instrumental in understanding, prioritising and taking action on change requests. standardising processes, reducing waste, and overall improving departmental efficiency. In paticular, the tools employed in the DMAIC cycle (especially SIPOC, and fishbone diagram) were really useful to engage colleages and stakeholders in all stages of the improvement process, and made everyone feel challenged by, and invested in quality enhancement journey."
Chiara Ciucani & Michael Steven, Development and Alumni, The University of Edinburgh - November 2018
"I found completing LSS Yellow Belt really interesting. My work is difficult to quanitfy but the tools of Lean Six Sigma, in paticular using the DMAIC methodolgy, really helped me to map out processes that I work with and improve them in a controlled way."
Freya Brooks-Todd, Executive Assistant to the Dean of the Business School, University of Edinburgh Business School - November 2018
"The Lean Six Sigma course has provided us with the tools to allow us to tackle a project in a new way to identify the best solution and evaluate the benefits. We will take these tools and information learnt and use them to develop a strategy for continuous improvement throughout the department."
Tiffany Pietrek, Catriona Simpson & Donna Black, Donor Testing Team, Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service - November 2018
"As Head of Research, I have found the work undertaken by the Yellow Belt participants on the ongoing Lean Six Sigma Project (Research Request Submissions) to have already been invaluable in highlighting potential business and process improvements in a number of areas."
Dave Scott, Head of Research for Development and Alumnim, University of Edinburgh
"The course content was excellent and expertly presented. I would recommend to anyone currently engaged or interested in continuous improvement methodology."
Steven McGauley, University of Edinburgh, November 2018
"The course was thoroughly enjoyable and I learned a new approach to problem solving using stats and information to influence decision making. The exercises performed during the course are very realistic to situations that occur in everyday working life. I have learned a new approach to tackling these issues using LSS methodology."
