December 2016. We had recently moved with my wife to a new flat in Moscow. I had just finished my Master Black Belt certification in Six Sigma from MSI (read about this in coming posts) and was looking for the next course. The situation at my work was quiet and boring, I hated that feeling, that my brain is under-challenged. I was looking for some information about process optimization (I worked as a Process Engineer at that time) when I found a Micromster's offering on edx from MIT. After reading a short introduction I took CTL.SC0x Supply Chain Analytics and immediately paid a certificate (150$) and have never regretted it.
