** Project Based Training -- Students will apply tools to a real project that is brought in from their work location. Coaching and mentorship is provided. Those who prefer to team up with fellow students must select the Live Online format. Those who want to progress into Black Belt must select a project-based course.

*Case Study-- This course is for those who do not wish to apply the tools to a real project or do not have the opportunity to do so. This class does not include the same level of project coaching and mentorship; however, it provides an excellent overview and will familiarize students with the process improvement framework.
