Examples of customized programs:

A regional healthcare system looked to CQAS for a customized Lean Six Sigma training program with content tailored to employee needs and a format that could accommodate a distributed organization.  CQAS worked with the client to adjust program content and then packaged it as a combination of three 2-day sessions delivered onsite plus four self-paced online modules and three live day-long project review sessions via web-conferencing.  The program has been repeated several times in response to changing employee skillsets and demographics.

A global leader in the design and manufacture of electronic sensors and controls turned to CQAS to provide a series of short courses as part of their on-site Technical Leadership program for over 30 participants.  Topics included a detailed overview of the DMAIC process, introduction to Minitab, advanced topics in Minitab, and how to work with data to solve problems.

A healthcare diagnostics company wanted to improve the efficiency and efficacy of their verification and validation process utilized in the development of new products.  CQAS provided a 3-day course entitled “Basic Statistics & Designed Experiments” and taught it on two occasions to the company’s R&D staff.

When a pharmaceutical manufacturer wanted to upgrade the skills of their quality assurance group, they turned to CQAS to develop a customized training program in Statistics Fundamentals for Process and Quality Control. The objectives of the course were to make participants aware of the need for sound statistical principles in their work, and to provide them with fundamental tools to help make better data driven decisions.  By the end of course, participants were able to see the value of sound statistical methods, to distinguish a poorly designed study from a well-designed study, and to use these methods to analyze study data.
