Q: Who Can Benefit from MindPro®?

  • show answer
  • A1: Individuals. For example, business and technical professionals that desire to further their career in terms of vertical or horizontal job mobility, as well as increasing their annual income. There is several key annual salary surveys conducted each year by highly credible organizations. Year after year, the survey results clearly indicate that Lean Six Sigma Black Belts and Green Belts earn a significantly higher annual salary than their counterparts. In fact, the 2011 Annual iSixSigma World-Wide Salary Survey revealed that a Black Belt can earn up to $202,500 per year, with the average being $89,196.

    A2: Small Businesses. For example, a small business may not be able to remove people from their daily work responsibilities to attend live training; however, at the same time, they have a burning need to create improvements that can take their business to the next level. In such cases, the company can incentivize their high-performers to train at home. In this way, MindPro® allows a win-win situation to be created for everyone involved.

    A3: Mid-Sized Companies. For example, consider a mid-sized company that can’t afford the resource and time commitments to engage a full-scale deployment and implementation of Six Sigma. In such cases, the company might consider creating a "Six Sigma Tiger Team" consisting of a few MindPro® trained Black Belts and Green Belts. If a business problem should arise, a Black Belt or Green Belt would be selected from the Tiger Team to resolve the issue by applying Lean Six Sigma methods. Following this, that person would return to his or her normal job assignment. Since they don’t use their skills everyday, MindPro® is a great tool to stay current over time or just brush-up on the Lean Six Sigma tools and methods previously learned. In this case, the company should consider acquiring a "Multi-User License", but only if the number of trainees is 10 or more; otherwise, the Single-User Option would be selected. For more information about the MindPro® Multi-User License, please contact us at info@ss-mi.com or call 480.515.0890.

    A4: Large Enterprises. For example, a Fortune500 company or a government agency might be undertaking a full-scale improvement initiative using Lean Six Sigma as their primary change agent. In this case, experience has shown that the enterprise must first design and create an infrastructure of Six Sigma practitioners and leaders. In turn, those practitioners would be focused on executing high-value projects that are consistent with the organization’s business goals. Naturally, when the mass of project results are aggregated, the "needle of business" moves in a positive direction. Given such a Six Sigma Deployment and Implementation scenario, the company would want to acquire a MindPro® Enterprise License to fully support the initiative. Of interest, the MindPro® Solution can be used as a stand-alone digital training platform or used in conjunction with coaching (live or remote) to form a custom blend of learning and application resources. The MindPro® Enterprise License is perpetual in nature and unrestricted on the number of employee-only users. In this way, the company can economically train and sustain a large number of Six Sigma Practitioners while reducing instructor variations and improving consistency of message.
