"For me the course cleared away the mystery surrounding the Lean Six Sigma principles - these are now far less intimidating than they seemed before attending the course."
"Course was a fantastic introduction to LEAN - looking forward to undertaking more training."
Department of Defence
"Derrick was a great facilitator and presented well."
Department of Defence
"Derrick was a very knowledgeable presenter, he engaged the group. The Introduction to Lean was more useful to my daily work than I realised it would be."
Department of Defence
"The Lean methodology/seven wastes was very interesting, as was the Value Stream mapping exercise. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and very responsive to our needs/expectations."
G & C Mutual Bank
I enjoyed Lean Thinking and Kaizen. It showed me how to manage the process more effectively."
G & C Mutual Bank
"An enthusiastic and well credentialed trainer made the presentation enjoyable and informative."
Brian was very knowledgeable facilitator. He was able to convey the theory and then apply to real work examples across multiple industries. Overall very good. Only issue related to insufficient time. Possibly make this a 2 day training."
G & C Mutual Bank
"Very informative and Passionate trainer, thoroughly enjoyed the training."
"I really enjoyed the course and the tools for streamlining that were offered. They will really help me breaking down the processes involved prior to writing/updating procedures."
Hospira Adelaide Pty. Ltd.
"Learning was facilitated by using examples from our work situation and it was easy to understand how useful the tools would be in future problem solving."
"Most useful was the use of real life situations. The exercises with these were thought stimulating."
"I really enjoyed this course. I preferred the first half of the course, rather than the second. I got really excited when we started to touch on the statistics. I was really looking forwarding to doing more stats. The second half of the training wasn't new to me as it was very similar to the investigations training that I have done many times before. I know I probably need to do the training for one of the higher 'belts'. So this is not a criticism of the course, but an admission that I need to do more training. The trainer, Ross, was brilliant. I would definitely attend his training sessions again."
"For me the most useful part of the course was the part about doing a group activity/discussion after a topic has been taught. This allowed me to better understand what we learnt and use it as an application tool to drive what was taught."
Hospira Adelaide Pty. Ltd.
"Facilitator was excellent and really made an effort to understand Aldi processes and culture. Quite useful in discussing aspects of your job that are deemed are waste and just really looking at how much time is wasted on these tasks. I thought it was great to look at needs of the customer into needs, satisfactory and above and beyond."
"I liked all of it. Lot to take on board in just one day."
"The trainer's personal experiences in the companies he worked for was of most interest to me. It was a display of the practical as opposed to the theoretical or conceptual. I prefer to learn that way."
This course has been developed to enhance the knowledge and capability of people involved in the daily operation of business processes.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
