What our clients say about us?

Makarand Lad, Technical Expert, Great Wall Motors

Last week I attended a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (CLSSBB) training from TÜV SÜD. It was a wonderful journey to refresh certain topics while getting acquainted with a few new ones. Although I have been using Six Sigma in day-to-day work, this interaction offered a new perspective through case studies from various industries.

Sridhar Sundararaman, DGM, Stelis Biopharma

I did my Six Sigma Black belt course from TÜV SÜD through virtual class room on weekends. Though I was a bit apprehensive when I enrolled, I decided to take a chance and give it a try. The fact that I did my green belt also from TÜV SÜD by the same trainer gave me some confidence. It was virtually equivalent to a face to face class with the added advantage of taking the class from the luxury of home.

Reynold Viegas, Systems & Process Transformation, Simfoni

Thank you so much TÜV SÜD for the valuable learning experience. It was my pleasure to be associated and be mentored by a Trainer with such a vast experience and insightful knowledge.
