Learn What People Who Have Been to the Training Have to Say

“At St. Alexius Medical Center we believe our employees hold the key to the future of our organization. We have enlisted the Lean and Six Sigma experts at NOVACES to teach a select number of our talented staff to be Green Belts. After completion of the intense week long class provided on site by NOVACES, we have our own staff energized and empowered to use the process improvement Lean and Six Sigma tools and strategies they need to eliminate inefficiencies and waste in our processes and systems.”

Rosanne Schmidt
VP/CNO, St. Alexius Medical Center

"Finding solutions to patient problems is second nature to a physician as they have been trained accordingly; finding solutions to systems and operational issues requires a different set of skills. Having a Lean Green Belt certification is like having an ACLS or ATLS certification, it is a proof that you have acquired necessary skills to rally a team, analyze and fix a problem."
