HI-PP1 Course Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts & Black Belts

Data science … the next step in Six Sigma?| 4 days

Data science and Six Sigma have much in common. Both depend on data-driven analysis techniques, offer structures for framing and solving problems, and follow a project-based approach. But also: Six Sigma is at least 25 years old … data science takes it to the next level, with new analytics, new forms of data, and new opportunities!

This course builds on your Six Sigma skills, helps you to understand how new forms of data and new analytical techniques are reshaping the field, and it gives you a solid and practical foundation in machine learning on which you can build your further mastery of the fields of machine learning and Big Data.
