BJM & Associates has partnered with MoreSteam University for the E-learning component of our unique Blended Learning Model.
MoreSteam offers a complete suite of online Lean Six Sigma training including Black Belt, Green Belt, Yellow Belt, and “Just in Time” Lean Six Sigma training, all of which is based on the International Body of Knowledge and uses the six levels of cognition based on Bloom’s Taxonomy to ensure student engagement.
We have worked with MoreSteam to create an E-learning component for project training can be customized in five different ways:
- By adding “Lean Six Sigma stories” of success as they emerge from within the organization
- By adding a 90 second video by the CEO or other executive leader that reiterates the importance of the program
- By rearranging or creating modules
- By adding the organization’s strategic plan, mission, vision and values throughout the courses
- Renaming to match the provincial program that is developed
Lean Six Sigma success stories follow a standard template to ensure consistency and are placed throughout the MoreSteam content in the appropriate learning area so it ties the learning principle to real life. For example, a student would read/listen to the content; complete an exercise on applying the principle then read a story of how it was successfully applied in their province.
The stories and video can be easily changed at anytime causing an instant update of the learning material without costly reprints or amendments. The student is signalled to the updated material the moment they log back in, allowing for continual timely learning.
As the organization builds its capacity by using the same model we deployed in the Five Hills Health Region, it has a cost effective and efficient way to provide Lean Six Sigma training to all its employees. Staff has the option of either participating in the “Just in Time” Lean Six Sigma course online at their convenience or they are given the option to print it out to read at their convenience.
This customized learning becomes a very powerful tool to help to engage, educate and empower staff to improve their work environment and the patient experience and fulfills the needs of the organization to have a customized quality improvement program.
BJMA has partnered with Minitab® Statistical Software
Minitab Inc. is a privately owned company headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania, with subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. Minitab also has representatives and distributors in countries around the world.
We use the Minitab Statistical software as their primary tool for statistical analysis to help clients maximize opportunities, reduce risk and bring rigor to processes.
More students worldwide have learned statistics using Minitab than any other software and BJMA, also in partnership with Moresteam University, uses several techniques to pass the knowledge and training on to the student to ensure they can use the software to its full potential.
BJMA has partnered with MTa Learning
MTa’s experiential learning and development materials are used by trainers and facilitators in over 100 countries, by thousands of the world’s most demanding organisations. We use the MTa Kando mini set for their popular Process Improvement training and the “trolley” exercise is a fan favourite with participants for the lesson learned and for the direct correlations to their work day.
MTa is a small specialised team, focused on:
- Designing and supplying materials that enable facilitators to deliver world class experiential activities
- Sharing their experience and developing facilitators and trainers
- Delivering team, management and organisational development programs
- Providing exceptional customer care and support
All too often the activity is the focus, not the learning or the implementation. MTa’s aim is to improve performance through learning by providing facilitators, trainers and teachers the tools to work systematically through the experiential learning process.
