“Chris' knowledge base is quite impressive, yet he understands students who have very little knowledge or background in Six Sigma. He has a great ability to explain concepts on a very basic level, giving his students a foundation to start from. He is an expert in his field with a great amount of experience which gives his teaching a wonderfully practical application."

Using data to provide the true picture of what is actually happening avoids having to depend on gut feel or opinions to try and determine the best course of action. The trouble we have seen is that data are often portrayed in a format that misses the mark, there is not much relevance, data are grouped in strange ways, or presented in charts that leave observers more confused than enlightened. We can translate your data into meaningful graphical analysis, perform advanced statistical techniques, and assist with data collection and planning to ensure the analysis is an accurate portrayal of your business process. We also provide customized training courses on a variety of data analysis techniques - contact us to discuss your needs.
