The PMI Six Sigma Yellow Belt training exercises were engrossing, informative and, most importanly, effective in providing us with the useful knowledge, understanding and training to become a Six Sigma Yellow Belt. The case studies were the most interesting part, as we were able to thoroughly understand the knowledge we had gained from the first part, and prepare for the questions which followed to test our knowledge. Another good thing was the fact that we could have another attempt at the questions in case we didn't get them right in the first instance, so that we could really gauge what we had learnt. From a critical lens, the tutorials were lengthy and time consuming. However, it is important to take into perspective that the whole training process has to be quite meticulous as it is implemented in real life cases pertaining to organizations, and they constitue a major role in organizational learning, improvement and success. Therefore, comprehensive guidance was crucial. Also, we have the option to review the exercises later and go through them at our leisure and convenience within the three months time frame, so it is relatively flexible. The software is user-friendly and the exercises had a coherent structure, so there were no issues faced. In conclusion, I would sum the whole experience as insightful, knowledgeable, interactive and fun - which makes learning all the more effective. The PMI exercises were successful in providing the key training to become a Six Sigma Yellow Belt, and in the future, I'm hoping and looking forward to proceeding on to the next levels.
