I learned about lots of new methods and tools that can be used in both the workplace and beyond. Especially liked the interactive portions and learning to break down KPI measurement.

Jessica Tsai, June 2016 Propel U Course

Great seminar! Very interactive course with practical and useful tools! I found going through the KPIs particularly valuable and would be interested in attending further workshops.

Lynda Lazosky, LKL Research Consulting

I greatly enjoyed the direct application of the course materials and how the instructor gave specific feedback regarding my business. I’m feeling very positive and can’t wait to get back to work now!

Alanna Rogers, Co-Founder, Pacific Design Lab

Propel’s Process Improvement Methodology ensures that organizations are self-sustaining. The team was able to ingrain a culture of continuous improvement at our workplace. Four years later, I was still able to use the techniques Propel showed me to build capacity in our processes and improve the Client Experience.
