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.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt in a high-tech manufacturing company where formal continuous improvement was a new concept. I was impressed with his ability to translate the concepts and skills needed to start down the path of the discipline in a way that was not only accessible to the employees, but excited them and moved many of them into being active, positive participants. I saw an immediate improvement in overall engagement, which helped in areas well beyond the tactical and functional areas included in the improvement project, itself.

I had the privilege of working with our Master Black Belt when he spearheaded the Six Sigma transformation within our company. The "do-as-I-do" disciplined style of his direction resonated within our entire organization. This was during a period of escalated growth and the management struggles that often accompany. Through his steady and focused approach, he brought structure to the craziness, garnered buy-in at all levels, and was quickly recognized as the guru. This was several years ago and now as a leader in an unrelated industry, I still find myself looking back on many of the concepts and methods we discussed. You may remember that one great teacher you had when you were in school, or a mentor you still think about today? He is one of those kind of special people who one is fortunate to know.

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.

MBBC's instructor is a true gem in the industry! Not only was he engaging (no one fell asleep, that really says something), his industry knowledge is current and even surpasses the industry standards for accuracy, clarity, and understanding in the GD&T space. From this course, I discovered how much GD&T exposure I have had as a Biomedical Engineer working in Quality, and it also gave me the framework I need to finally move into design and product development. I am looking forward to taking more courses with MBB Consulting.

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.
