“Investing into Lean Six Sigma trainings proved to be one of the best investments our company has made. Our people changed their thinking. They are better prepared to come up with solutions enabling us to beat our competitors.”

Christophe Baptiste, Plant Manager GETRAG FORD Transmissions Slovakia s.r.o.

 

“FBE provides us with invaluable support in amending our know-how and developing our Lean Six Sigma team. In particular we appreciate the seniority of FBE’s trainers in terms of knowledge and experience.”

Jana Barnaťáková, Organization and process control manager

Tatra banka a.s.

 

“The best way to evaluate an instructional program is to determine whether participants use acquired knowledge and skills in practice. Even though I work in HR, the manual from the FBE training remains on my desk and I use it every day. As part of the training, each participant worked out his own Six Sigma project. Eventually my project contained a task list of 30 items we will change and how we will do it.”
