"In my opinion, respect for people is the most critical and powerful pillar [of lean], yet it is often forgotten or misunderstood. " - Kevin Meyer

With the new year comes plenty of new exciting content from Gemba Academy. The first example of this is a new course entitled “Culture of Kaizen,” an 11-part series that emphasizes the importance of people in continuous improvement methodology.
While equally informative and inspirational, this new course is radically different from traditional material and is the first of its kind in the lean training industry. Instead of focusing on the use of various Lean and Six Sigma tools, “Culture of Kaizen” teaches subscribers how to set the stage for success by instilling an improvement-oriented mindset that applies to lower level employees and managers alike.
“The two pillars of lean are respect for people and continuous improvement. In my opinion respect for people is the most critical and powerful pillar, yet it is often forgotten or misunderstood, thereby leading to lean transformation failure. With this course Gemba Academy is once again setting itself apart by providing training not just on tools, but on the culture and framework necessary for lean success,” explains Co-Founder Kevin Meyer.
Modules of this innovative course cover a broad range of topics including habit-forming techniques, brain chemistry, modes of persuasion, characteristics of strong leaders, and more. This multi-faceted approach reinforces the concept that people are the core of lean, and gives meaning to the practical tools by empowering individuals to use them regularly, correctly, and with the passion necessary for significant improvement.
