This course gives you a good overview of why six sigma and lean are necessary. It also gives you an understanding of how team dynamics play important roles and how brainstorming is an effective tool.

It was a well constructed and well-explained course. I was able to understand the concept of 6-sigma in detail. Practice assignments helped me to check if I have cleared the concept properly.

I am giving this a 3-star rating. Even though it supplies substantial information, the presentations are lacking proper structure and should be revised. The slides and the speaker are not in harmony. I either have to listen to the speaker or try to read the slides, and when I try to do both I get confused and in the end I don't register neither what the speaker is telling me, nor the information on the slides. Good thing that there's a transcript, when completing this course I actually read through the transcript first and then looked at the slides. But it shouldn't be like that, this means that whoever created the presentation was seriously lacking the most basic presentation skills. The actual slides should just be guiding the presenter, so they should contain only a minimal amount of information (and no full sentences like they are now, there's simply no time to read through them while trying to listen to the speaker). The presenter should be more detailed, and not just say "here's an example of ..." and then jump to the next slide. Talk about the slides! The focus should be shifted from the slides to the presenter, especially since there's a written transcript (thus there's really no need for too detailed slides only for study purposes). I'd rather listen to a detailed, structured, logical but longer presentation, than have to go through it multiple times because my attention is being divided all the time.
I expect higher standards from a course that I am spending my money on.
This could be a wonderful course, I did learn a lot, but please please revise the presentations!

The video's do not provide enough info to pass the quiz, and the text I don't think does either. Also, it's pretty expensive to buy, even as an e-book.

Quizzes were full of poorly worded questions with grammar mistakes. It got better as it went, but was frustrating. There's a sign things aren't right when the first quiz tells you only 6% of people pass on their first try.

Coursera clearly states that the campanion texts are not required but will be an asset. I decided to sign up for the Yellow belt course without having the book (since it was pricey). Lo and behold, the first exercise is to read the first chapter of the book, and further more, when I got to the quiz, I recognize that some questions I've never heard about!
So then I tried locally in my country to source the book but was unable to. I ended up having to buy it off of Amazon and pay international shipping. Mind you, time is passing and I had to reschedule until my book arrive. All this time I'm paying for a service I'm not yet able to use.
I'm unable to find a way to speak with Coursera support to start my payment at a later date. SMH! If they were straight up with this information, I would be in a position to make better decisions that would be less expensive!

Horrible. Not worth your time or money Did not finish:
-Textbook or slides are NOT provided. Textbook costs upward of 60$!
-What slides are provided do not match the voice
-The course spends too much time on the academic history rather than the practical aspects
-The information is disorganized and the quizzes don't relate to what is taught!

This course is very poor. You need to watch several 2minutes videos (Why they couldn't do it longer ?). During assignemnt there are questions related to topics which are not addressed during those videos. Furthermore there is one book, which is advertised by course leaders as recommended but not mandatory to finish this course, however in week 2 there is one exercise which requires to develop "process map" and tasks starts with words " after reading pages 56-59". What is wrong with them ?

The Course covered the fundamentals of Six Sigma and Lean and provided an insight into the thought processes and principles which drive these concepts, while highlighting their main features and tools used to accomplish and succeed. These include familiar concepts like Just-in-Time, Kanban, DMAIC among others. Additionally, the objectives and advantages of both Lean and Six Sigma were highlighted.
The videos were informative with sufficient use of tables, charts and graphs to elucidate or clarify as and when needed. I did not find too many issues with the video and the audio, but there are a few instances - however these are minor and can be easily overlooked.
I would recommend this course to all those looking to get a specialisation in Lean Six Sigma.

The first Course in University System of Georgia's Six Sigma Yellow Belt Specialization provides thorough lectures and key concepts of value for aspiring Yellow Belts. The Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt Handbook compliments perfectly the course. However, Kennesaw State University's experienced faculty delivered outstanding lectures that made the use of the Official Handbook entirely optional. Although, this course is considered an introductory course, the high quality of the teaching and the large amount of information in each video make it really easy to transition into the next courses in this certification.
Overall, I'm really satisfied with this course and the Program as a whole. Thank you Coursera and Thank you USG's Faculty,

The course contains very practical notes on what Six Sigma is and what are its underlying principles. It does cover a lot of topics although I feel that course materials are not enough to do a comprehensive study on the subject especially if you do not have the companion text. It would be better if excerpts or notes from this companion text would be available in the different modules.

Generally, the content and the topics covered were ok, you and up having a pretty good picture of Six Sigma and Lean.
I will grade it with 4 stars for the following reasons:
· Quizzes had mistakes (one question with two correct answers, but only one of them gave you the points. A student wrote about this three years ago and nothing was done about it).
· Presentation with mistakes (one of the presentations talked about arranging information in a different way than what the textbook explained).
· More importantly: they suggest the reading of a textbook throughout the whole course insisting that it was not mandatory, just as a guidance, and then some of the questions in the quizzes referred to this book!! So you couldn’t get the answer right if you didn’t have it! This was very disappointing.

Had to buy a book for 70 euros ... Never mentioned and one of my drivers for online courses are the videos instead of reading books. Also the quality of the lessons is not of the quality that I am used to in other Coursera specializations. I wish I had read other reviews before I signed up.

On every test there is a reference to their book, which costs $90... Without book, just watching the lectures and going through slides and annotations, the approach is about guessing the correct answer... The claim is that the book is not required, but it seems to me that it is...

Some good information, but this is obscured by sloppy organization/presentation (ironically), poorly-worded questions, and substandard grammar. It should be noted that subsequent courses are better.

I only completed the first part of this course but I will not be continuing. The reasons why are as follows: (1) The textbook is absolutely required in order to fully grasp the concepts being presented. For an online course, this is ridiculous. There were quiz questions that came from the text which is highly unfair for an ONLINE course!
(2) The slides were mostly words and they did not always align with what the speakers were discussing. Additionally, there were several times I had to seek external material to understand what the speaker was talking about because neither the audio nor the slides gave enough information.
(3) The audio/ reading was badly read with mistakes and the text had numerous typos. This was very distracting. The IRONY is that this course is about QUALITY.
The institutions/persons offering this course need to DRINK THEIR OWN MEDICINE. This is the worst course I have taken on Coursera to date.
