The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for Lean Six Sigma was present throughout the course. She used real life/practical examples while teaching which really brought the Lean Six Sigma tools into a new light. I look forward to enrolling in additional classes with cerstaffix thanks to this experience.
