Very good introduction to Lean Six Sigma!
Good course, easy to follow. Good refresher or intro to Six Sigma and lean.
Interesting but a bit basic
It was well summarised course of the core principles and ideas around Six Sigma in healthcare with working examples. Good starter!
My Lean Six Sigma learning experience was very informative, opening me up to a new way of thinking with practical examples. The course content was easy to follow and allowed me to work at my own pace.A good start for me on on Lean Six Sigma Journey.
Thank you for the overview, was quite useful as an introduction to Six Sigma.
A bit basic for the cost, was expecting more.
Very interesting course. Has already helped me start challenging the way I think!
Excellent course, very informative and applicable to real life situations.
I would like to be able to download a version to revisit the information from time to time – Please can this be arranged? I completed it in 4 hours – I think the price is too high for the course.
Excellent course very knowledgeable. Taught me a different way of thinking and how to achieve goals once keeping the patient as the centre focus.
Enjoyed the course and learned a great deal. Thank you
Brilliant course; I learned a lot about and I really enjoyed it. I am definitely thinking of continuing and starting the Green belt. It was a clear, straight forward course that makes you think how you can improve in your own hospital. Thank you
very understandable course and good examples
Very easy to follow, good use of written information and video’s. enjoyable and practical.
Simple and straightforward – would have benefittied from some sort of flow chart perhaps at the end to put the techinques in processes in a visual order
I thought this was an excellent introduction to Lean Six Sigma. The quality of the production and presentation was worth the fee in my opinion.
very good design of the course, short segments and quiz at each module end helps retain learning. Very pleased, I shall continue to do more in the future
Useful course. Thanks
Useful and easy to follow
Useful basic introduction
I found this course very easy to pick up with very thorough explanations of the types of processes and solution required, as well as how to identify issues and waste. I found the reference to real world examples (such as the coffee shop analogy) very useful when thinking about how to apply the concepts being discussed.
Informative and useful course.
Great format. Easy to follow. Good examples. Able to complete in a timely manner
very enjoyable course and easy to follow
What a brilliant and informative course. I work in healthcare and can already see where this training will be of great value.

Very useful course.

Very good. Some of the qs in final exam too leading
Really informative and useful course, thank you.
This training was to the point, well laid out and was a great quick way to obtain the training and knowledge required.
Excellent – The application to the Healthcare environment was very helpful.
It was knowledgeable and informative course
The teacher’s information was clear, to the point with useful and demonstrative examples. After I watched each video I went through the written material and in order to do the final test I read everything again. If I could make a suggestion, I would find it useful to have the written material in a separate document in order to revise and recap. Thanks a lot! I’m looking forward to dive deeper into the Lean Six Sigma levels.
A quick and interesting overview of lean six sigma. Would be a good idea to have a few more real life examples and context for the ideology to cement the ideas further.
Brilliant, simple course. Will be very useful starting point for many interested in applying Lean/Six Sigma in healthcare settings
Nice overview of Lean Six Sigma, but very, very basic. Instructor has a horrible accent and the videos don’t really add anything to the text.
Very clear and useful course
This was a steady course, easy to follow. I liked that I could stop the video to recap and make notes and the additional information in the panels below the video.
A little too basic, would have been nice to have seen images of Fishbone diagrams, etc.,
This was a well presented course in terms of visuals, study materials and methods and I very much enjoyed completing it.
Very well structured course. Easy to follow.
Good resources -easy to understand videos to support resources and learning at own pace
Very enjoyable online learning a great reminder of previous learning

This was a very good program and it allowed me to understand the content in a simple manner. Very helpful.
Awesome program geared towards the healthcare sector
Good, but would be nice to go through case studies in more depth to apply critical thinking.
Quick, digestible straight forward lessons. Would love to see a few more examples of the various concepts and would love to be able to print out the little summaries in a compiled way for easy quick reference in the future.
Perfect start as introduction to lean six sigma
Great informative content!
Fantastic course. thank you.
Although I have had many training on Continuous quality improvement, this course basically brings the missing pieces and everything together.
interesting links to healthcare, as someone who helps the NHS from a private companies perspective this did help me understand more ways to help my client.
It was very easy to understand and the real life examples also helped.
Quick and simple course to follow
The videos are very clear, and the notes are helpfull to go over the material again. The quiz at the end of each lesson prepares you for the exam really well.
The only downside I can think of is that Healthcare is bigger then hospitals, so I was expecting more examples from the Phamaceutical and Biotechnological industry in addition to hospitals in the text.
Great course, concise and to the point, great to see a course that has taken its own advice!
Excellent course which was delivered nicely through short video’s and consolidated by the text before leading to the quiz. I liked the examples given and the focus on of LEAN in healthcare rather than not being subject matter specific (Manufacturing).
Interesting subject and valuable information for every healthcare proffesional that wishes to excel
Very easy to follow along. Information was clear and concise. Examples provided were superb.
Course was very helpful. Only took 2.5 hours.
