Seenivasan B Chief Operations Officer Pricol Limited

Lean and Six Sigma training at Beyond Z Consulting aided me with my internship at Tech Tailor in the field of Operations. The concepts of lean and Six Sigma discussed during the session came handy when I was formulating SOP for Tech Tailor. Additionally, listening to the questions posed to the host by my peers in that session, who were already working for an organisation, built my understanding of the concepts stronger, as I learned how the concepts are applied in the real life scenarios. It was more of a learning session and not just another academic session. I would request Beyond  Z to continue conducting the training sessions in batches with such varied demographics as peer learning is extremely crucial these days. The highlight of the session was when our host Mr. Pradeep shared his experiences of the projects he has worked on. The training content indeed was such a great source of knowledge. I am sure the knowledge I gained from this session will help me with my future assignments

I really enjoyed the Six Sigma Black Belt course – overall it was Excellent! The material was laid out in a user-friendly way with good examples to help illustrate and understand the concepts. I was able to understand fairly complex statistical concepts and methods without having a masters in statistics! There is an extensive amount of course material and study guide which will be excellent references for me in the future. Whenever I had any doubts regarding the training material, contacting Mr. Pradeep Kumar (MBB) via phone or E-Mail was very easy. Great institute to start Lean and Six Sigma career

I found the Lean Six Sigma workshop organized by Beyond Z very helpful in managing and improve the process quality and product quality at the apparel factories we work with. One of the projects I was actively involved was to reduce on line defects from 6.9% to 4% and to improve line efficiency from 60% to 85%. We used line balancing techniques of Lean and Quality Improvement techniques of the Six Sigma methodology. The factory personnel were astonished at the changes that was possible

Rajashekar, Quality Auditor- Haute Couture

I was very fortunate to attend BB training conducted by Mr.Pradeep in TE during Feb- May 2007. Pradeep made this training simple and effective with practical day to day examples which was exemplary. I remember we were 20 BB candidates in the session, had same feedback at the end of the training " Excellent Training ". I must say in addition to the advanced Stat tools, the soft skill sessions viz Presentation Techniques, Project Management and Leadership Skills were classic . I believe this training had a great impact in next stages of my career helping me in deploying various CI methodologies. Thank you Pradeep, i still remember your classic example " Ghar ghar mein Six Sigma " Thanks & Best Regards

Vamsi General Manager - OpEx Pfizer Health Care India Pvt.Ltd

I had the good fortune of choosing Beyond Z Consulting as my training provider of choice for learning Lean Six Sigma for my Green Belt certification. I had no cause to regret my choice. The training material provided is excellent. The delivery method for virtual classroom was flawless. Above everything, Pradeep Kumar, the faculty, is an expert in the subject and is an excellent teacher. He takes the student through the complications of Six Sigma methodologies and techniques and makes them simple and easy to understand. He delivers the theoretical part of the subject in a way that the student will understand and also addresses the practical applications of Six Sigma. And, finally the delight is in the cost. I was wondering if there was a mistake. But no, the cost is half of what would be normally be charged for this course elsewhere. I would unreservedly recommend the Lean Six Sigma course from Beyond Z consulting to anyone who wants to learn the subject and also wishes to get certified.

I would like to thank you for the well-organized Lean Six Sigma Black training, the training was absolutely superb and the topics covered was very interesting and the discussions were truly inspiring. I particularly enjoyed the session because of real time examples and visual illustrations and practical exercises. I have attended several trainings before but I can’t recall any of them having such a strong impact. I will surely recommend this training to all who like to lead projects and work on process transformation

Srinivas U Head- Quality & Operational Excellence at TE Connectivity

During the pandemic, while analyzing the strengths and weaknesses with the management team of my organization, we came across the concept of Six Sigma. This seemed like the perfect skill to obtain in the time we had at hand. I underwent the lean six Sigma green belt training from Beyond Z under MBB Pradeep Kumar. He explained every concept in depth with immense patience. Even though my experience in my field of work is minimum, I gained clarity about how any process can be improved and made more efficient. His focused guidance before I took the exam really helped me eliminate doubts and secure a high score in my green belt exam. This experience has left me motivated to do better in my chosen field of work.

Shreya Deshpande, Resident Engineer ,Vishal Infrastructure

I have been associated with Pradeep of Beyondz consulting for almost 2 decades now. I have also done the Black Belt for Lean Six Sigma many years back and I have applied the principles of my learnings in Design Engineering, Manufacturing, Logistics etc., I have leveraged these learnings and have been using this on a continuous basis wherever opportunity exists. The few things that Pradeep and his team differentiates from many other consultants out there are They don’t try to impose all the tools for the sake of using it and rather use an appropriate solution for the problem statement. I could really understand the formula of usage of these tools only while applying it in practical scenarios and Pradeep and team helped here We have used some of these tools in many cost savings projects in Engineering which I had not done in the past. The commonly used tools like 7 QC tools, Statistical analysis would be taught by most of the consulting firms but usage of advanced tools like ANOVA, DOE etc., is not easy. Initially was very difficult for me & my team to apply this but then Pradeep and team ensured that we really go in depth and apply these in a right way. I can say that we saved several thousand dollars by using these tools and improving our product design by evaluating & implementing innovative solutions. I am very sure that Pradeep and team from Beyondz Consulting would add a lot of value to the business in whichever company it would be and I wish them all the very best.

I am so glad that I took up the Lean Six Sigma training conducted by Mr. Pradeep Kumar of Beyond Z Consulting. I got to learn many problem-solving tools which helped me in working with our vendors to solve problems in apparel manufacturing process. The techniques learnt also helped me to articulate the issues we face in the products and samples delivered by the factories, which enables a quick and robust solution
