Colleges constantly look to provide Process Improvement training to meet the needs of surrounding businesses. Implementing a blended learning approach can help colleges scale and serve as a resource for businesses. Here we highlight the successes our customers have achieved partnering with OpusWorks to sell and deliver process improvement training to their clients.
