Course Description

Understanding your customer, their needs and their requirements is crucially important – probably the most important thing you need to grasp in your business. To obtain this knowledge, you need a tool that will help you to gain the crucial insights to help you shape your products and services. This is where the CTQ (critical to quality) Tree tool comes in.

This tool enables you to work logically though a process, whether on your own, as a business or with your customer to establish their needs, what drives the successful delivery of these needs and the SLAs (service level agreements) that sit around them. The tool is multifaceted, giving you greater insight into what your customer wants but also enabling you to make better, more informed decisions and create lasting and achievable SLAs.

In this course, we do the following:

  • Go through the fundamentals of this tool (what CTQ is, what the tool is, the benefits and customer analysis).
  • We walk through the process you need to follow in order to deliver the tool.
  • We break the tool down into its constituent parts and explain each, in detail.
  • There are also several demonstrations, based on real life examples of CTQ Trees being deploying in a range of scenarios.
  • And we will give hints and tips along the way to ensure you are covered when looking to deploy this tool.

Being able to understand your customer’s needs today, tomorrow and longer term is a skill highly in demand and insight that is non-negotiable for any successful business. With the CTQ Tree, you get just that!

“Truly brilliant. A great flow, a really knowledgeable instructor and great resources. I have had some trouble understanding the delivery of Lean, purpose and method - now I feel so much more confident. Thank you Robert.”
Benjamin
From London, UK
“An absolutely amazing course. It has a clear structure and as the slides are present I do not have to make notes. Also - all of the important definitions are being accompanied by demonstrations in practice of the tool by which I could understand the true meaning of them. The way the course is presented is nice to follow, language is impeccable and the speed is not to fast. Usually in other courses from Udemy I can see a definition of a problem directly followed by example with a lot of fluff, but those extra unneeded false interactions with learners make the course only longer and makes me usually loose my focus. In this course I did not experience it at all. It was to the point and I have actually learned something that I can directly use in my work. Thank you! PS I will for sure follow the other courses of the instructor!”
