Statistics and data analysis play a central role in Six Sigma and other quality improvement methods in business and industry. But when organizations try to implement these methods, they frequently discover that not all employees understand statistics—and even those who have statistical training need to refresh their knowledge regularly.
To help people involved in quality improvement initiatives get up to speed with statistics quickly, Minitab, the leading provider of software for quality improvement, introduced Quality Trainer, an e-learning course focused on statistics for Six Sigma and data analysis with Minitab Statistical Software. It’s been enthusiastically adopted by companies including Caterpillar, Cummins, Baxter Healthcare and many more.
Organizations looking to increase the level of statistical skills among their employees can find out more in a free webinar, “Meet Quality Trainer,” on June 21, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Australian Eastern Time (GMT +10:00).
Participants will see how Quality Trainer can help them easily learn statistics and how to analyze their data using Minitab. Registration is free at http://www.minitab.com/training/web-events/.
Quality Trainer’s engaging, Web-based design makes difficult statistical concepts easy to grasp and gives professionals convenient access to an ongoing resource for their projects. “Anyone can benefit from this opportunity to boost their statistical know-how and learn at their own pace,” says Michelle Paret, product marketing manager at Minitab.
