Minitab offer targeted consulting and training

Minitab Inc have done well in recent years by careful targeting of their statistical software at a particular problem - Six Sigma standard compliance.

It is continuing this strategy with a new training and consulting operation announced recently. Avoiding the usual language of consulting services and training, they focus directly on Six Sigma again offering a "support service" where organizations lack the statistical or technical skills needed.

When you strip it down it is a standard consulting/training service - "Can't use our product? Pay us to use it for you or to show you how". But this seems like a worthwhile service, well presented and likely to do well. At $200 per hour, Minitab Inc must think so too.
