And now a rare word from what is effectively our sponsor…! As many of you know, I am one of the partners in Gemba Academy, a company that has been providing online lean and six sigma training for over four years.
We now offer over 520 videos online. The School of Lean includes courses on all core lean topics, including 5S, Value Streams, Quick Changeover, and the just-released A3 Thinking. A recent addition has been the Gemba Live! series, featuring on-site videos showing lean in action at companies such as FastCap, Specialty Silicone Fabricators, and Pro CNC.
The School of Six Sigma includes over 200 videos supporting an optional Black Belt certification.
Our unique model is very simple: a single price for unlimited, on-demand online training at a single site. No per-seat, per-person, or per-use charges. Compared with the cost, let alone inconvenience and complexity, of traditional training methods, this represents an incredible value. Unlike other options, our videos are created by real lean practioners that learned how to make great training videos.
We're thrilled that over 1,000 companies and organizations are now using Gemba Academy online training products. Companies range from small single-site machine shops to large multinationals, one with over 60 sites, and in industries from manufacturing to healthcare, food service, financial services, government, and the military. Subtitles are available in multiple languages, including Spanish and Chinese.
July is a great month to sign up as we're running a promotion in collaboration with LeanPresentations.com. Specifically, between July 1st and July 31st anyone that purchases a Standard or Premium subscription to the School of Lean, School of Six Sigma, or the Combo of both will receive 115 PowerPoint training presentations plus a Lean Enterprise Strategy Kit which, sold separately, retails for $499.
The fully customizable PowerPoint presentations cover a wide variety of lean manufacturing, lean leadership, lean enterprise, quality, and safety topics. The customizable Lean Strategy Kit takes your organization through the development and implementation of a lean enterprise strategy.
This promotion will remain open to the first 500 customers or until July 31st, whichever comes first.
