Minitab Training


The world of Six Sigma relies on statistics and hard data to provide process improvement. Utilizing a series of tools, strategies, and data formats, trained Six Sigma professionals are able to identify problems within a process, determine how each problem can be rectified, implement the necessary changes, and then monitor the situation. However, they don’t do this all in their heads–it is a specific methodology. Six Sigma professionals require specialized tools, such as our Minitab Essentials Training. If you are still wondering “What is Minitab?“, this training will help you understand this statistical software package. If you have questions about Six Sigma using Minitab, this course will provide you with a general understanding, but you can learn more by purchasing the Six Sigma book.

Every industry has software specific to it. Graphic designers use Adobe software products, administrators and office personnel use Excel or Word, and Six Sigma professionals use Minitab. It’s an essential tool in process improvement, making it essential to any Six Sigma program. This is why we say don’t learn statistics take Minitab Essentials Training or our Six Sigma Green Belt instead.
