SISU’s approach is as inspiring as it is practical…their model is the best systematic approach that I have seen that is simple, yet delivers high impact for creating a culture of continuous improvement.
Armed with best practices in implementing a principle-based daily management system and leading for purpose, passion and performance, you confidence will grow as your skills deepen.
Each of our courses is taught directly by the author, has been tested and proven to deliver results, and is designed to ensure you can apply your learning and improve performance.
what makes our courses unique?
Each of our programs has been proven to get results and focuses on implementation rather than just the transfer of knowledge. The courses eliminate unnecessary jargon and help you not only understand what to do, but more importantly, how to do it in your unique environment.
“Companies don’t invest money in ideas. They invest money in ideas that return actual dollars. SISU taught us valueable improvement systems and how to implement them ourselves. Mike’s approach to understanding what the real issues are and how to solve them is what makes him different. We continue to see results from the work SISU did with us.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the online courses as effective as face to face instruction?
No, the online courses are not the same as having Mike Martyn at your organization leading the sessions and responding to questions in real time. However, we have included more than 4 hours of video of Mike’s direct instruction and each course has been tested with actual clients to ensure your success.
Is there a recommended sequence to the courses?
We recommend you proceed from Understanding our Model (review of the book) to the Learn the Principles course and finish with Design the Systems (focused on implementation).
How long will the courses take?
As these courses are highly interactive and full of exercises and implementation assignments, the time it takes to complete each course will depend upon the speed of your execution. Generally speaking, we have designed the courses to be finished in 90 days.
Can I stop and start my program?
The online program is self-paced allowing you to start and stop whenever you want and for any length of time you need.
How do I access my account?
Do you offer refunds?
Yes, we will issue you a refund in the first 30 days if you are not fully satisfied with the course. If you need additional information, please submit your comment via the Contact Us page.
