In this article, we’ll review other Lean Six Sigma training providers and how GoLeanSixSigma.com compares to them.
In the world of Lean Six Sigma, it’s a “wild west” for certification standards. Unlike the Project Management Institute, there is no central governing body for Lean Six Sigma certifications.
Each training provider determines their own course curriculum, exams, and passing requirements. Because of this lack of certification standards, the quality of training providers varies greatly.
You may have heard of other Lean Six Sigma training providers out there, such as ASQ (American Society for Quality) or IASSC (International Association for Six Sigma Certification), that claim to be the authority on Lean Six Sigma. However, this is simply not true.
ASQ focuses on a variety of quality improvement methodologies, including Lean Six Sigma, that revolve around manufacturing processes. ASQ tends to have a more academic approach to Lean Six Sigma by including all concepts and tools from the methodology in their courses. In our experience, some of the concepts and tools from the methodology are not applicable in everyday situations and projects, so we provide our learners with only the most useful.
IASSC simply provides a certification exam for Lean Six Sigma to test and verify an individual’s subject knowledge. IASSC does not provide training for Lean Six Sigma but instead reviews and approves Lean Six Sigma courses from other training providers. If they approve it, they simply endorse the course with their seal or “stamp of approval.”
GoLeanSixSigma.com is different from these providers for several reasons:
- We specialize in Lean Six Sigma only—we’re the experts!
- We teach how to apply Lean Six Sigma practices across all industries with a focus on servicing-based processes that exist in all organizations
- We provide both Training & Certification for Lean Six Sigma—one place for everything Lean Six Sigma
- We’re results-driven instead of certification-driven—we want to help you not only improve your resume but your organization’s processes as well!
An important consideration when selecting a training provider is to determine their goals and approach (as mentioned above) alongside the organizations with which a training provider has partnered.
GoLeanSixSigma.com has become globally recognized as we have over 250,000+ learners in over 220 countries and territories across the globe.
