The module on Change Leadership was very inspirational, informative and interactive. We’ll all look back on this learning experience with great satisfaction as a group, and also as individuals. This module was the perfect ending to the theoretical part of the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Excellence programme.

There is no magic recipe for success, but it helps to practise various exercises from this programme to lead change successfully. In my organisation it’s a challenge to meet the customers’ demanding expectations on reducing delivery times. We need to motivate the organisation bottom-up to achieve success.
