  • Ali,

    Thanks for the feedback. I need to amend the presentation and will be deleting this one. As I do, I will be sure to add in some examples of how this can be used.

    Thanks for the comments and I will be back soon

  • SImon, this is a nice presentation. Yet; I have to add that you may consider giving examples to enrich your presentation. The methodology such as DMAIC is well known, but what is greatly missing is showing creative applications. You have the potential to eriye great presentations and that is I am very open in my comment
