Mukilteo, WA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Gemba Academy, the leading provider of online lean manufacturing, lean enterprise, and six sigma training, is pleased to announce four new upcoming free webinars on a variety of lean and quality topics.
On 26 September Bob Emiliani will present a webinar on "Lean in Higher Education." Higher education represents an enormous opportunity for the application of Lean management, yet the focus thus far has been almost entirely on administrative processes. Mr. Emiliani will present how Lean principles and practices apply to academic processes to improve individual courses, as well as how to use kaizen to improve entire degree programs. He will provide highlights of his own pioneering Lean experiences in higher education, including faculty and staff reaction, student feedback, and lessons learned. It will also include tips for engaging university employees in efforts to improve academic processes in response to the major changes that are happening today.

On 11 October, Mike Micklewright will present a webinar on "The Relationship Between Dr. Deming's and Toyota Way's Principles." The relationship between Dr. Deming’s principles, as defined in his landmark book, "Out of the Crisis," and the principles Jeffrey Liker defines in “The Toyota Way”, are uncanny and important to understand for any company trying to have lasting success in its Lean Journey. Prior to showing this relationship, Mike will explain the importance of focusing on Principles 1st, rather than the lean tools, as so often occurs in American business.
