This course goes beyond teaching a pre-defined roadmap and handing you a checklist of tools — it's designed to build on your knowledge and technical expertise and train you in statistical thinking so that you can lead improvement efforts within your organization. We're looking for leaders who are respected by their colleagues for their experience, expertise, and process/product knowledge.
