Six Sigma Yellow Belt specialization is a rare course available in Coursera. The course content and the method of teaching is outstanding. We learnt DMAIC, SIPOC and other important tools for improvement of process and quality of product making less defect. I hope with this skill anybody may apply the theory in any enterprise and even house enterprise to reduce defects and costs.

Although the course is outstanding the verbatim of the certificate is unlike other coursera certificate. I feel the wording may be improved e,g the certificate offered by the University of Minnesota is given below:

In this Specialization, learners developed essential human resources skills to become more effective people managers,including elements of recruiting and hiring employees, motivating and retaining employees, managing employee performance, and compensating and rewarding employees. The specialization presents applied knowledge that is grounded in academic research, which is especially valuable because managing people involves complex responsibilities. Learners completed a Capstone Project at the end of the Specialization to apply their new knowledge and skills

....but here it looks like marketing and advertising of the course:

This specialization is for you if you are looking to learn more about Six Sigma or refresh your knowledge of the basic components of Six Sigma and Lean. Six Sigma skills are widely sought by employers both nationally and internationally. These skills have been proven to help improve business processes, performance, and quality assurance. In this specialization, you will learn proven principles and tools specific to six sigma and lean.

Moreover, the Logo of Kennessaw State University is to be given for value addition of the certificate as the instructors belong to the Kennesaw State University.

It was great experience learning with professionals and professors from universities. The course is nicely design to give brief information about the tree of Six Sigma. Every module in every course was informative with the appropriate guidance a person can get his/her specialization and this is what one can receive here. Thank you for such a informative course. Lessons learned from this specialization are numerous including brainstorming, tools in Six Sigma and lean, things to keep in mind as a six sigma personal, management skills, and many more. The capstone at the end summarizes all the four courses and allows it to explore through it.

As at all courses from LSS specialisation -- most of the video just reading the text from the book. There are no examples of application the knowledge, so the course create a huge difference between theory and practical application. I've made my project based on a past experience, rather then the course. There are some good videos. Actuall, this is very interesting: all yellow video -- just reading the book, no use at all, all blue video -- quite good. Why is it?

Great course to get the holistic idea of lean six sigma. I highly recommend this course for any one willing to work in the manufacturing and production field. Thank you all for the immense support throughout the course.

Good Theory, good explanation. Would have been useful to add more exercises in order to better understand all the Key concepts rather than only final test.

Final test is on a free topic with not so many key concepts to implement, more related to project management rather than Six Sigma QA. I would have used a defined topic exercise with more quality analysis to implement such as SPC, Control charts,...
