Why should you consider the Cii as your Continuous Improvement training provider?


The best learning facilitators are those who have “been there and done that.”  The Cii Training and Consulting (T&C)  staff are experts that do more than present material; they make a difference.

Training and consulting is a two-edged sword.  Companies need it yet often cannot not afford it.  The Cii T&C programs have immediate and long term measurable impact, ensuring a return on investment for money spent.

The Cii courses are “module based” and the client can choose one of many standard packages or customize them to their specific organizational needs.  This is a major differentiator in the training market.

Not only does the Cii offer traditional Business Process Management (BPM), Six Sigma and Lean methodologies, it also exclusively offers the first and only 21st Century Process Improvement methodology called “The New Brass Ring” (TNBR).  Leveraging the benefits of the 21st century, TNBR is a “solution-based” problem-solving strategy works to minimize risk and models success before the final decisions are made.  This is another differentiator for those organizations desiring to use a 21st century PI methodology on its 21st century issues.

Moreover, the Cii is more than a training organization; it also has a staff of experts that can assist on solving specific issues, from analytics to solution generation to project management and implementation.

The bottom line is that the Cii has what nearly any organization needs and WILL make meaningful and significant, positive differences in the performance of your organization.

What is DMADD?

DMADD is short for the major steps within the methodology: Define – Measure – Analyze – Develop – Deliver. Traditional process improvement is informally or formally based on “scientific method” to discover “root-causes” and create solutions based on the “discoveries.  Many times these efforts are likened to “recreating the wheel.” The Cii has labeled traditional process improvement as “discovery-based, problem solving.” 

DMADD is based upon the age-old axiom that “…nothing is new under the sun…” and differs from the traditional improvement methodologies through its focus on clear definition of the issue and identification of “solutions” rather than on “discovery.”  This focus provides a lower risk, faster methodology that they call “Solution-based” problem solving.

DMADD is a solution-based methodology that delivers quicker return on investment (ROI) with lower risk and proven results.
