Training

Training about excellence should exhibit excellence. We don't believe in online training. All of our courses are in-person and led by a practicing expert on the topic; not just a theorist. An MBB Consulting™ expert will provide real life examples describing how they've actually used the technique(s). Classes are also fun. Students learn better in a fun and comfortable setting. Case studies and exercises keep our classes interesting and make them much better than boring monologues done by some of our competitors. Many improvement techniques rely on Statistics. And many people find statistics boring. We've found ways to make it fun.

FMEA training via video conference was excellent with great real world examples. Material and format kept me engaged. The class was more than I expected. I (also) liked Measurement System Analysis training even though I was somewhat familiar with Gage R&R, I learned new techniques that can help me visualize the data quicker / easier. There were also areas where I was able to ask questions more applicable to my new role in this new company. Process Control training was informative and engaging. IATF training was excellent. Instructor was able to answer all of my questions and go above and beyond in assessing my own documentation. I now have not only a better understand of the subject, but I feel confident in the documents we send to our customers

This training is very good for Inspectors, Technicians, or Engineers to learn the fundamentals of GD&T. This course will help me a lot in my task of performing measurements. Our instructor is really good. He is very knowledgeable on all aspects. Regarding Gage R&R, the activities are fun. The course will help us improve our measurement analysis as we don't have this at work. Our instructor has so much enthusiasm in training. Please tell him that his training helped me gained confidence. Confidence comes from knowledge, right! He is a good trainer. I am thinking of searching again at your website and find what other courses you offer that will be beneficial to the group.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt at our energy tech firm. There, he created an internal mentorship and training program to teach lean/six sigma concepts. The training was made available to employees spread both horizontally and vertically throughout the organization. Executives, managers, assemblers and receptionists alike were soon finding and eliminating waste within their workday. This divide-and-conquer philosophy in executing the continuous improvement program was not only an incredibly efficient way to find and implement cost savings, but also created a culture of empowerment within our organization. Our MBB encouraged all of his students to use these techniques to add value to the organization, in-turn making them more valuable employees.

Steve was one of the great managers that I was fortune to work with and from whom I learned many of my improvement techniques. He was my Master Black Belt in 6 Sigma. I contribute much of my success to him for teaching me the first steps along my journey to excellence. His encouragement and leading by example continue to be the guidance for many of my engineering projects. Many great managers and engineers are his students and receive the benefit from his training.

I had an excellent and memorable experience of attending Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt training from a professional trainer, coach and industry expert who was hired by our organization to help with the transformation of company processes. Our Master Black Belt was not only knowledgeable in the subject but also had several years of hands-on experience working on complex projects, solving problems, applying and implementing Lean and Six Sigma techniques. His teaching skills were exceptional making it easy for everyone to clearly understand the concepts. He brought energy and motivation in the workforce and quickly won praise, recognition and respect from management, staff and shop floor employees. His knowledge transfer, coaching, and guidance helped improve several key processes and resulted in significant improvement in company KPIs and customer satisfaction level. I highly recommend him for his remarkable skills, knowledge, passion, and professional approach towards process and business excellence.

When I attended MBBC's 5S Training, I did not know what to expect. I went into it with an open mind and was presently surprised. While I was listening to the presentation I imagined all the ways I could apply the training to my facility. The class was upbeat and engaging and the instructor referenced real world examples to connect with issues we face every day. I left the training inspired and eager to apply what I learned to my facility. I would recommend the 5S Training to anyone who is looking improve their efficiency in manufacturing.

I think MBBC instructor's 5S training was very good and effective by technique and his on-site advise. In Japan, most of purpose for 5S training is "Realization of a safe working environment". In his training, I learned as "Maximize corporate profit" and at the same time it was very impressive that how clear and effect of doing 5S is very closely linked to lean manufacturing. I felt that is effective especially for western who have different mentalities from Japanese.

Our Master Black Belt introduced improved quality and manufacturing processes. Our company was moving to become ISO certified. He and I, plus one other, came from the automotive side and certified in ISO. Further, we had QS experience which was a more concentrated standard to allow all automotive companies to work to the same quality and manufacturing standard. He was also familiar with TS quality standards.

Our MBBC trainer was very knowledgeable and informative in every area. The training was great for people with little to no experience or those with some experience already. He catered to what we previously knew about ISO/IATF. The course allowed me to practice my own skills which I liked most because you don't learn without trying. You also don't know what you don't know so having an instructor with all his experience / expertise helped foresee possible issues we may run into in the future so we are equipped to handle those.
