This course complements team-based facilitation tools with a deep dive into statistical analysis and modeling best practices using Minitab. Featured topics include regression analysis, coach training, lean inventory systems, and numerous variation modeling concepts. Students learn and apply skills for leading process improvement project teams with significant organizational impact. Taught by our Master Black Belts, the course features curriculum and exercises that are specifically tailored to fit student and client needs.
