Mukilteo, WA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Gemba Academy, a leading provider of online, video-based Lean and Six Sigma training, announces that their combined School of Lean and School of Six Sigma video library has now reached over 500 videos. The recent addition of Gemba Academy’s popular “Gemba Live!” series has allowed Gemba Academy to add relevant new videos profiling the lean journeys of successful lean companies such as Pro CNC, FastCap, and Specialty Silicone Fabricators. Gemba Academy continues to add new course content and learning options based on market demand as well, including A3 Thinking, Minitab Quick Hits, and Black Belt Certification.
Gemba Academy was launched in 2009 with the goal of providing cost-effective, high-quality continuous improvement training videos in high definition. Over the past several years, as organizational training budgets have been increasingly reduced, companies have been challenged with finding low-cost, computer based training solutions covering the breadth and depth of key Lean and Six Sigma topics. Over a thousand organizations have adopted Gemba Academy’s turn-key training videos to meet their training needs as well as their budgetary constraints, deploying training to remote and on-site employees. Gemba Academy’s video library of over 500 videos is practitioner-focused and modular in its design, with each video ranging from five to fifteen minutes in length. Organizations can immediately deploy Gemba Academy’s videos and resources in instructor-led, self-paced, and hybrid, or “flipped learning”, environments combining both approaches.
In addition to new videos, during the past year Gemba Academy has added subtitles as well as content delivery options for companies with multiple locations. English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese subtitles have been added to all core course content in the School of Lean and the School of Six Sigma. The subtitles meet the needs of English language learners as well as the needs of multinational companies with non-English speakers in operations around the globe. Companies with multiple sites now have new content delivery options, including a custom access pages and Learning Management System (LMS) content support. Subtitles and enhanced content delivery options help to provide consistent training to globally dispersed employees without compromising quality or topic coverage.
Organizations and individuals with Gemba Academy subscriptions receive new videos, as they are added, at no additional cost. Gemba Academy content can be accessed online and are optimized for mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones, making them accessible for individual use as well as instructor-led training. Video topics range from Lean topics such as 5S Workplace Productivity and Value Stream Mapping to Six Sigma topics such as Statistical Process Control, Process Mapping, and Measurement System Analysis.
