Dr. MMV Answers Your Questions

How much do I need to learn to get started improving my processes? 

You might have heard that Six Sigma Yellow, Green or Black Belt training is really focused on statistics, and math is not your thing. 

Here's a secret: most of the skills needed to improve processes involve no math at all! 

Our Yellow and Green Belt courses present topics using the Pareto principle, or the 80/20 rule. We teach the tools that practitioners use most often, and those that have the most impact on process improvement. 

By concentrating on choosing the right projects, taking stakeholders into account, leading a team, mapping processes and using common sense graphical and Lean approaches, you can start improving processes and making dramatic changes to the bottom line. Sure, we throw in the normal distribution because it's useful too. But you won't be overwhelmed. Just trained to make improvements.

Our Black Belt program does dive deep into statistics, so if that is what you are looking for, you'll be pleasantly surprised. We have created a ton of videos and computer lab exercises to help you grasp the concepts.
