03/31/2009


With its new online training service, Gemba Academy effectively removes the three most common barriers to rapidly educating people and applying business excellence practices: the cost of professional training, lack of in-house expertise, and difficulty scheduling training time.
The academy offers on-demand, low cost online training in the fields of lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, value stream mapping, 5S, and project management by merging leading-edge technology and deep expertise in the application of business excellence practices.
Online training courses are available as six-month subscriptions for $495. These courses enable companies to deliver professional training to an unlimited number of people at a fraction of the traditional cost. In addition, new content will be added every month to these courses based on member feedback.
"Lean manufacturing has always been a key to success for ventures I have led,” says Kevin Meyer, Gemba Academy partner and founder of Factory Strategies Group . “With the ability of lean principles to reduce cost while increasing customer satisfaction, it is more essential than ever in today's economic storm. Gemba Academy allows me to accelerate the training of my people at a fraction of the cost we used to pay consultants."
Free training modules are available for preview on the subjects of lean manufacturing, continuous improvement and 5S at www.gembaacademy.com/preview
"We are deeply committed to making knowledge about continuous improvement as widely available as possible," says Ron Pereira, chief instructor for Gemba Academy and Lean Six Sigma master black belt. "I am eager to give back and share all that I have learned over the past 15 years."
