If you’re still not sure which course is best suited for you, give our consultants a call today on 0800 066 3749.
For that reason, we have a number of case studies which delegates can use in place of their projects. If you have any questions about the case studies, or to find out if your project is suitable, contact your Master Black Belt.
Minitab is not used throughout the entire course, so we recommend you install the software when required. This ensures you take full advantage of the trial. If your trial expires during the course, you will either need to purchase the software direct from Minitab, or install the trial on a different machine.
System requirements for the software:
- Operating System: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or higher, Windows 8 or 8.1, Windows 10
- RAM: 512 MB (minimum); 1+ GB (recommended)
- Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon™ Dual Core, with SSE2 technology
- Hard Disk Space: 2 GB (minimum) free space available
- Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768 or higher
- Connectivity: An internet connection is required for activation of single-user licenses
During the course you can purchase coaching sessions and extensions.
Minitab is required for the Green and Black Belt courses, and although a 30-day trial is provided, you may wish to purchase the full software.
This is available direct from Minitab; http://www.minitab.com/en-GB/products/minitab/default.aspx
Should you need to pay via invoice/Bacs or purchase order, we can arrange this too, please call us on 0800 066 3749.
You are also entitled to a number of one-to-one coaching sessions depending on your course.
A case study can also be provided if you are unable to develop a project at your own organisation.
Lunch and refreshments are also provided each day, so please let us know of any allergies and dietary requirements well in advance of attending your open course so we can pass these on to the training venue.
It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure this third-party software is installed before the training course.
Minitab is a Windows-based software so it is incompatible with Mac laptops.
If you are working on a live project and want to discuss that as part of your training, please bring all the appropriate details with you.

If you’re a returning customer, or you’ve recommended us to someone, we’d love to hear your feedback and learn what we can do to make sure we keep getting it right for our delegates.
If you are taking Lean Six Sigma within a company, it can help your career progression by providing you with opportunities to manage projects and people, and give strategic input into the future direction of the company.
As an internationally recognised qualification valuable across all sectors, taking a Lean Six Sigma qualification can open up roles in different industries or even different countries.
A dedicated Master Black Belt will also help you at each step of your project work to make sure it is at the standard necessary to certify.
If you need additional support at any point, we’re always happy to help out our past delegates, so if you tell us what you need we can make sure you’re offered the right solution.
As a result, the real benchmark is the best practice process used by companies such as GE, Motorola and Honeywell. This robust approach, based on training, an exam and project work, is the same one adopted by 100% Effective which is why our training is some of the best available.
