Abidian believes good practices are based on good common sense.  We don't teach fads or a lot of theory ... we teach the creative, yet practical, common-sense application of proven techniques with the no nonsense goal of quickly improving your effectiveness and overall bottom line.

Abidian's workshop facilitators have taught in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.  Our certified, hands-on professionals have experience teaching public workshops, in-facility workshops, and university-level workshops.

Workshop Topics

Public Workshops

Abidian offers a full slate of Lean, Six Sigma, Maintenance, and Total Productive Maintenance and Manufacturing (TPM) Workshops to meet your continuous improvement needs.  Industry specific topics are available in Manufacturing, Healthcare, Education, Financial, and Retail Services.  Through our affiliation with Section 1124 of the American Society for Quality (ASQ), many of our workshops can lead to potential ASQ and/or Abidian professional certification.  Click here for details regarding certifications available through Abidian and the American Society for Quality.

Our public workshops are typically offered through ASQ Section 1124, Florence Darlington Technical College (FDTC), and the Southeastern Institute for Manufacturing and Technology (SIMT).  Working close with these three non-profit organizations has allowed us to offer professional workshops as low as $100 to $300 per person per day.  Our public Lean and Six Sigma Green/Black Belt workshops tend to be among the most competitively priced anywhere.  We also offer an economical e-learning option.
