SSDSI is absolutely the real deal! I have personally taken the LSSBB training in Austin, Texas (I am in Washington, DC). I currently have LSSBB, but my emphasis was on lean and taking LSSBB course has helped me to understand streamlining process not only by removing waste, but also by reducing variation with the use of statistics and statistical tools such as MiniTab.

The team at SSDSI are extremely knowledgeable and their practical experience has helped make sense of the material that may seem otherwise overwhelming. The instructors are calm, detailed, and patient. They are a wealth of knowledge, prepared, personable, reliable, and are amazing practitioners.

The flexibility of SSDSI's instructors has allowed SSDSI to travel anywhere. As a matter of a fact, SSDSI has instructed my company's last three LSSGB courses including their respective Lean Six Sigma jump start mentoring events. We have certified/will certify almost 40 employees over the course of the last year and a half with SSDSI.

SSDSI has put together comprehensible tools for their participants - and if coupled with effort on your part, their is no way you will not be belted within 3-4 months. As an aspiring LSSMBB, I have used his tools to train yellow belts for my company and its funny how now everyone wants to be a part of the LSS family. The process definitely works - its proven for sure.

The instructors will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. They are process focused and if you want to improve your business operations, please heed to their advise.They have definitely proven to be trusted advisers.
