Curriculum Designer – Mike Carnell
If you want Excellence to be the cornerstone of your Lean Six Sigma curriculum, where better than the Fountainhead?
Would you expect to find someone who worked alongside W. Edwards Deming (Founder of ASQ and possibly the greatest legend in all of business analytics and improvement)? Would you seek a Co-creator who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Bill Smith (exchanging “Continuous Improvement” Statistical Control and coining the term “Six Sigma” as we know it today)? Would you want a pioneer who practiced Six Sigma since its inception? Would you want the best, who helped spearhead General Electric’s deployment of Six Sigma during the heady days of Jack Welch?
What if you could have this? What if you could have the most legendary global deployer of Six Sigma Methodologies, Theories, Tools, and Techniques to be your Instructor?
I would want all of the above, if such a person existed. The good news for us is that he does! It’s truly Vanguards’ great honor to declare that our Lead Instructor and Six Sigma Courses Creator is Mike Carnell.
Mike began his career in the Continuous Improvement disciplines in the early 1980s’ while employed at Motorola, which was at that time the crucible of the development of Six Sigma methodologies. The list of global programs/projects and deployments is truly unbelievable (Target, GE, Starbucks, Miller Coors, JP Morgan, LG, BP, & Allied Signal Automotive to name a few). This makes him one of, and in our very humble opinion perhaps, the most experienced operations improvement providers in the world today. Mike is an accomplished speaker, author, and a leading expert in the field of business excellence and sustainable improvement. He is a trainer and coach in Lean, Six Sigma, and Continuous Improvement, and has taught executive programs in leadership and organizational development with a number of leading companies within various industries around the globe.

what some of our students had to say
“I was one of Vanguard’s students for the PMP® prep course. The teaching style of the instructor was very engaging, and he used both great examples and also humor to help make the main points memorable. He went out of his way to make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful on the test. Most importantly, he helped me pass the PMP® exam on my first try!”
“I took Vanguards’ PMP® class and they did a great job. The instructor taught with passion and commitment. He was engaging and keeps your interest the entire time. I followed his guidance, studied as he said, and I passed the PMP® exam on the first try.”
“This course is everything that it is advertised to be. As long as you stick to the plan outlined by Vanguards, you’ll pass the PMP® exam on your first try.
