“The staff at VA616 genuinely care about each and every student, are willing to work with students and their schedules as they struggle to balance continuing education with work, life events, etc.  They say to be the best, you have to beat the best. No company offering similar training is gonna beat Value Added 616, they are the BEST!”

“Lean Six Sigma and process improvement are the two main things this amazing company taught me and my team. They’re agile, resourceful, and worked with us during COVID-19 to make it work!”

“I’ve known and worked with Dr. Chesla for years… even before he founded VA616. His attention to detail and commitment to continuously learn and improve is not just a core value, it’s who he is and foundational to the culture he cultivates at VA616. As a 20+ year Process Excellence professional myself, I have no reservations in recommending VA616 for their training, coaching, facilitating, and project management skills.”

“This course is fantastic. The facilitators all have very different personalities and all were great in their own ways. The course was interesting, kept my attention, and made concepts easy to understand. I loved the Sim portion and the ability to see our learning in action and work with other people in a fun way. All in all 10/10 would highly recommend it.”

“The course was really well structured and organized. It helped to hear about real-world examples and how the principles can be applied. This class may have been my favorite class I’ve ever taken including all my college classes. It included both functional and more technical learnings. I really enjoyed the passion behind the training from the instructors. They made the class super intriguing and fun.”

“I have been with my organization for 8 years, and this is by far the best course that I have taken. The Instructors were helpful and engaging and encouraged collaboration and questions throughout.”

“Material is laid out very well and taught at the beginner level which is excellent given Lean and Six Sigma can be confusing when just reading via text. Both instructors were extremely engaging and entertaining and made the course very enjoyable.”

“The simulation was paramount to driving home all the concepts. Well done including that and everything; just awesome! It took everything from concept to practice.”


Google Review

The course material was very thorough and all instructors were very knowledgeable. Presentations and the practical application simulation worked well together to help build a good understanding of the concepts being taught. Most importantly, the simulation and team project counting toward certification is a huge benefit. Most courses offered by the USMC only cover training that requires the Marine to work on a project after training to become certified. I would recommend our command (and others) continue to seek training from VA616.”
