Specialist training

Specialist training is designed to develop internal experts and qality professionals within your organization who can lead and drive quality and improvement initiatives. Specialist training can consist of training quality managers, improvement leaders, Lean Six Sigma Black Belts and Green Belts, Lean experts, process developers, process owners, data analysts, quality auditors, and/or product development specialists.  

In addition to our open course offerings for specialist training, we can provide these courses internally at your site as well.  An on-site, internal course can be fully tailor-made to suit the needs of your organization.  A central part of many of our specialist programs is to complete a project, as part of the training, where the knowledge of the training is applied to the work of the specialist’s organization. These projects help the specialist process the information, apply it, and fully understand the concepts presented, as well as begin to save their organization time and money, and eliminate waste. Newly-trained specialists often receive a planned mentorship from Sandholm Excellence Center's experienced consultants.

Our experience is that the sooner quality and improvement professionals are trained in the methods and tools needed, the more successful the business becomes.  The positive impact of training specialists early in a quality initiative can be striking, leading to greater success in far less time. Knowledge creates the ability to make good decisions, to continuously support ongoing improvement work, and to steer the direction of the improvement projects and internal culture. Competent supportive roles in quality and improvement work also ensure that the organization can plan and drive the work independently, avoiding reliance on outside consultants.
