Most lean thinking books and training focus on topics related to the Just in Time, or JIT, pillar of the "Lean House." To be sure, topics such as takt time and kanban get lots of attention. But as we all know it takes two pillars to hold any house up. And as it relates to the "Lean House," the second, less talked about pillar, focuses on Built in Quality with a special emphasis on topics like Jidoka.
Gemba Academy's latest course helps subscribers understand and implement Built in Quality (BIQ). Chris Schrandt - a senior consultant for the Kaizen Institute and former Quality Engineering Manager at the Toyota Georgetown, KY plant - delivers a live workshop to a room full of lean thinkers at the Peterbilt Manufacturing Facility. During this course Chris explains what Built in Quality is, how to achieve it, and how to ensure it becomes a way of life within your organization no matter if you work in a factory, office, or healthcare facility.
With this new course Gemba Academy now offers over 230 video training modules on lean concepts. The modules are in High Definition (HD) format and can therefore be viewed at an individual computer or projected into a large training room with no loss in quality. Gemba Academy's unique site-based subscription model allows for training as many people as desired, with no per-person or per-seat fees. Over 1,000 companies now use Gemba Academy as part of their training curriculum.
In addition, during the month of January, Gemba Academy has partnered with LeanPresentations.com to provide new subscribers with over 115 PowerPoint training presentations. These presentations are idea as an introduction to key lean topics.
