These days, everything revolves around data, with which we can express quality. We can measure, predict and test quality with astounding accuracy, and see this all around us. Big data, complex algorithms, advertising and process improvement. And at the core of it all, is the science of statistics.

The process improvement methodology of Six Sigma, for example, uses statistics to assess the operational quality of processes and determine how to best improve them. Whether you are a Green Belt or Black Belt, you will be faced with statistics all the time.

In this online course we will take you through all the basic statistics that you will need to achieve your formal Lean Six Sigma certification.

Training information

In just 8 self-paced lessons you will learn all the basics of Statistics within the context of Six Sigma, and will come to understand that you don’t have to be a Statistics mastermind in order to get started with Lean Six Sigma.
