Why Pyzdek Institute?

My name is Thomas Pyzdek. I started my work in quality and process improvement over 50 years ago. I loved it then, and I still love it today. If you choose to join my profession then you are embarking on an exciting career. You will help people and organizations become better at what they do.

Why should you get your certification from the Pyzdek Institute? Image this, you get brand X training and list it on your resume. One day you answer the phone and on the other end is a Master Black Belt (let’s make it a “he” for simplicity.) Chances are, like most Lean Six Sigma professionals, he has my Six Sigma Handbook on his bookshelf. After all, it has been the standard textbook in the field since 2001. But you got your training elsewhere. The Master Black Belt asks where. He’s never heard of it. The quality of training offered on the Internet is uneven, to put it kindly.
