"Nick clearly communicates course objectives, carefully covers each of the topics and checks for understanding.  Nick also does a good job of connecting with his students in demonstrating his passion for the topic and providing multiple examples from his experience working in industry. "
- Ed Bresnahan, HR Supervisor, Caterpillar, Morganton
"Through the broad and extensive training my employees received by Nick in 5S, each week progress can be seen in the organization and cleanliness of our facility.  My entire employee base also went through lean manufacturing training with Nick, and the effect is often seen in subtle ways.  For example, an operator recently suggested a correction which not only improved the part quality, but also allowed the machine to run with fewer interruptions.
