Here's what one subscriber wrote about Bill's MBBP:
"Great manufacturing management articles. Thanks for the insights. I often share portions of your articles with my staff and they too enjoy them and fine aspects where they can integrate points into their individual areas of responsibilities. Thanks again."

What Everyone Ought to Know About Training
Believe it... "there is no free lunch!"
If you search the Internet for manufacturing training, you'll come across a ton of stuff... and most of it free.
Now we've had people tell us that there is no need to purchase anything because "you can get so much free stuff on the net."
Admittedly, there is a ton of free stuff on the net...and if you put it all together you'd probably have over a 1000 hours of YouTube videos, and a million pages of white papers and case studies.
So if you had over 1000 hours of YouTube videos, and a million pages of white papers and case studies would you and your company realize your full growth and earning potentials?
Let me answer that for you... NOOOOOO!
Unfortunately, even most "not for free" manufacturing training options fail to meet buyer expectations because they are either:
* EBooks with little or no effective graphics to optimize learning
presentations with no
commentary to drive
* Videos that deliver information at super speeds but with
* Seminars/webinars that present a lot of materials however
Our Unique, PowerPoint-Plus Training Materials
Our "PowerPoint-Plus" training tutorials includes powerful, PowerPoint charts and graphics, "plus" annotated note pages with “how to make-it-happen” commentary and "lessons learned" by Bill Gaw a "been there, done that" lean manufacturing champion.
One of the keys to success is having a great coach. Whether you're an entrepreneur or you're working your way up the corporate ladder. the experience of someone who's "been there, done that" can be invaluable. Throughout his training materials Bill Gaw provides expert knowledge, support, empathy, respect and, most important, the wisdom of experience. and, he's always just an email away.
PowerPoint-Plus Training Materials Biggest Advantage
Customers study their PowerPoint-Plus training materials, print sections and highlight passages that are important to understanding and master. The resultant guidelines are used for team empowerment, motivation and the successful implementation of their lean transformation. eBooks, basic Power-Point presentations, videos, and seminars/webinars just don’t provide the same capability nor performance results.
Another plus is that every training package includes a "Train-the-Trainer" manual should your training objective be to use the training materials for team training,
5-Reasons Why 80% of Lean Manufacturing Initiatives Fail to Meet Expectations
The Lean Benchmark Report
A while back, the Aberdeen Group, published their “Lean Benchmark Report.” Of close to 300 manufacturers that participate in this study, 90% reported that they are committed to Lean. However, further analysis found that less than 20% of these companies can be considered best-in-class.
Below you will find the 5-reasons why lean initiatives fail to meet expectation and a few lean manufacturing training options that are helping individuals and companies eliminate them. Invest some minutes of your time and check out the reasons and their solutions.
Reason No. 1
is not enough planning.
Solution No. 1:
Solution No. 1:It's not an "add water and stir" initiative. You can't just decide one day to become lean and think it will happen overnight. You need to determine what constraints are impeding your ability to increase speed, improve quality, and eliminate non-value-added activities. And, finally your tactical plan needs to be developed based on value stream mapping and gap analysis.

Reason No. 2 is lack of understanding and support for the company's lean initiative.
Solution No. 2:Unless all employees participating in the lean transformation are convinced that lean manufacturing training is important to its success, improvements will not meet expectations.
Need help...Bill Gaw designed this "lean manufacturing training" package and a related manufacturing simulation LEGO game to help companies rally company-wide support of their lean initiative.

Reason No. 3is poor preparation.
Solution No. 3:Even with the best plan, successful implementation will be evasive if there is not a genuine commitment to employee lean manufacturing training, multi-functional, self-directed work team development and empower-ment.

Solution No. 4:Determining motivational performance metrics and establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to track performance is paramount to achieving positive, sustainable lean initiative results.
