Meet the Our Learners

The Game Change Advantage

When learning from Other Providers

Traditional courses emphasize presentation or material-based learning of content afterward.

 Focus is on ‘Theory’ Not ‘Practice’ whereby Lean Six Sigma knowledge is transferred but improvement results are never fully realized.

You get stuck, and there is no follow-on support available which can be a real handicap to your learning and improvement efforts.

 You are limited to the features that come with the training making it difficult to develop practical skills to apply.

 It’s hard to learn and implement the skills in your company on your own, with no follow-on support.

 You have to purchase additional software or recreate the tools, templates, and calculators in excel to be able to implement.

List items you are typically dealing with a training provider with a general course catalog and a salesperson trying to sell a course

When learning from Game Change

Expert Master Black Belt instructor’s with real-world experience, so you not only learn the theory but also the “know-how” to make a real impact.

Ongoing Support – We have a strong set of support services that include Coaching Clinics, Regular Networking Events, and Discussion Forums.

  Our unique ‘Bootcamp’ and virtual learning environment full of helpful features, tool-kit, resources, and support.

  Game Change App available for Apple and Android, the perfect tool to make your learning journey mobile friendly.

  Global Delivery Options through our Open Programmes currently held in London, Bradford, Oslo, Jersey, and Dubai.

  Accredited – The content of the Game Change programs exceeds what is specified by ISO18404 and also aligns to the ASQ Body of knowledge providing a recognized route to developing skills and career advancement.
