    I’ve recently been selected by my company to attend MBB training. They have allowed me to research and choose my own program to attend, but there are a lot of options out there!I have narrowed it to a few programs:-Smarter Solutions (current front runner)
    -SigmaPro (referred by colleague)
    -SixSigma.us (referred by colleague)Does anyone have any first-hand knowledge about any of these programs? I would like some advanced statistics, but want to focus on teaching, mentorship, and the rest of the soft skills that I will need to develop in order to be a successful MBB. Any advice would be very welcome. Thank you.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on these programs or recommend another that I haven’t looked at?

    I will be attending MBB training early next year with Six Sigma Academy or thru the University of Texas (Dallas) which is recommended by our MBB consultants from Accenture.

    My company has used many different vendors in the past. Recently, we switched our business to SBTI. They are located in San Marcos, Texas just out of Austin.The course is 5 weeks + 2 weeks of electives. You will be trained in advanced stats, change management, hands on experience with teaching, coaching, and mentoring.No, I do not work for them, nor get kick backs, it is just that good. FYI they are getting ready to start a new wave this month.

    I’ll second Shelby’s recommendation of SBTI.  Shelby and I actually attended the same wave of MBB training with them.
    SBTI is definitely strong in stats and teaching.  They do a pretty good job related to coaching.  They have a very unique approach to leadership through Shakespeare that is well worth the experience, but isn’t as comprehensive on leadership as might be desired.  I’d be looking to supplement the leadership portion with something like a Center for Creative Leadership course.
    SBTI does have an MBB training wave starting on Mon Sep 21, and they have been offering a discount to get the last few seats full.  You may be able to take advantage of that if you act quickly.

    Thank you for your responses!The SBTI curriculum looks awesome, but unfortunately I can’t be away from the family for 5 weeks. My wife might go insane with having the kids by herself!Does anyone else have any other recommendations?

    Ask your big customers or suppliers, whether they provide an internal programme and team up with them. We developed our own programme, adjusting it to the needs we see in our company. Unfortunately we run it only every second year. We just finished one wave recently.
