Business Excellence Consulting

There are many different statistical tools, which provide powerful new ways of understanding your products, processes or services. Most of these are taught and coached as part of part of Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma programmes. However, we also offer training, coaching, facilitation and support in the individual tools, general courses or bespoke courses to meet your needs.

We use Minitab™, JMP™ and, of course, Excel™. We can also help with other software packages - or just the stats!.
