Have you ever had any of  these thoughts:

       *  I've been in this job too long!
       *  I'm tired of job hunting!
       *  I hate getting up in the morning!
       *  I see no opportunities for advancement!
       *  There must be a better way to make a living!
       *  On my current income curve, I may never be able to retire!

If so, then it's time for you to pursue a career change or at the least a business opportunity to augment your income and improve your life style. And you should take action now whether you're buried in the trenches or stuck on the corporate management ladder... whether you have too much on your plate or your bored with your current situation... now is the time to make your move. If not now... when?

Many frustrated manufacturing leaders constantly think about a transformation from  paid employee to entrepreneur. It's in our make-up, I guess. Bold independent rebels, all of us in pursuit of our full growth and earning potentials. And, why not... it's the American dream.

However, over my 15 years as an entrepreneur in the manufacturing sector,  I know from deep experience, that successful entrepreneurs in the game all enjoy massive amounts of outside help. They gave up the "reinvent the wheel" thing the moment they saw how FAST profits can come once you seek expert help and put it to use.

How Does One Get Started? 

The seminar/Webinar business is a great way to start your lucrative business and prepare you for a consulting practice should you decide to go in that direction. There are thousands of seminar companies and countless seminar/ Webinar leaders who are sharing a piece of the financial pie. Why not you? And a big plus is that your business can be started part time while you maintain your current employment.

Besides money, you will receive recognition, perhaps even fame. By choosing to become a seminar/Webinar leader, you gain attention, respect, and recognition from others. By positioning yourself as an expert in your field, you will become the guru that others admire. There is a feeling of intoxication that comes with this territory, a kind of addiction that develops once you have a taste of what it's like to be an information entrepreneur.

A successful seminar business has three requisites:

      Marketing Know-how, Presentation Skills, and Presentation Content.

All three of these requisites can be easily acquired and quickly put to use via a new and exciting training program: Bill Gaw's "Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/ Webinar Business-in-a-Box."

With the knowledge and know-how you'll receive from the "Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/Webinar Business-in-a-Box," you'll qualify to share in the profits currently being reaped in these businesses. Whether you decide to go into it part-time or full time, the good news is that you can become part of these profitable businesses as soon as you receive your "Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/ Webinar Business-in-a-Box"

Why a Lean Manufacturing Business?

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.

Bill Gaw created the Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/ Webinar Business-in-a-Box to help you get started in these businesses by providing you with the techniques and tools to help the 80% become best-in-class, lean manufacturers.

Your biz-in-a-box planning and presentation materials provide the solutions for each of the reasons why most lean initiatives fail to meet expectations. You'll be presenting  the techniques and tools that have been the pillars of three successful, Bill Gaw lean manufacturing transformations and that are now helping hundreds of manufacturing businesses:

* Better understand how to integrate lean manufacturing with MRP to increase process speed and people productivity

* Improve the development and execution of quality and supply chain  
 management  systems to improve customer satisfaction and earn "supplier of choice" awards from existing and potential customers

* Develop proactive, multi-functional, lean manufacturing teams to eliminate non-value-added activities and related costs and improve product profit margins

* Transform manufacturing training and learning from drudgery to fun to improve the spirit and performance of individuals, teams, and organizations.

Transforming MRP supporters into lean manufacturing advocates is a company's primary challenge in achieving and sustaining manufacturing success. To meet this challenge, your Biz-in-a-Box contains training materials that have proven to be successful in helping manufacturers achieve the transformation.

Two customers saying it better than I can:

“Bill's experience and the resources he provides are first rate and of great practical value for both the experienced manager wishing to push improvement in their business as well as people at the beginning of their careers who need to understand the basics of making businesses lean and effective”

             Quentin Kopp, a LinkedIn.com recommendation

"Your training materials are the easiest and fastest way to understand the practicalities of lean Manufacturing that I have seen in many years of Manufacturing consulting activity. I intend to use them in my practice, if you are agreeable, since I am now extending into new consulting areas."

Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/Webinar Business-in-a-Box

Here's what's In-the-Box:

1. Push vs. Pull Video
This is the famous "Oldie but Goodie" HP video that demonstrates the Pull vs. Push production systems,  one-piece-flow,  stock-less production, and cycle time management. It helps everyone gain an understanding of the benefits of lean manufacturing techniques.  Great for closing the sales meetings.

2. The Manufacturing Simulation Exercises
Participative exercises that demonstrate the benefits of Pull (LEAN) production over Push (MRP) production. The game employs sequential production, kanban and point-of-use inventory and demonstrates how quality, cycle times, and productivity improve while reducing inventory, scrap, rework, and floor space requirements. Great for winning company-wide understanding, acceptance and commitment to a lean transformation project.

Game Process Synopsis 

Active participation for 6 to 12 people with sideline observation note taking by up to 20 observers.

Team builds 20 Lego Towers of two configurations, 6 MRP subassemblies... from 320 LEGO Bricks.

MRP (Push) simulation includes stockroom, shop order picking and subassembly production. Time to complete: 25-45 minutes depending on team skill level.

Pull manufacturing simulation sets up a "one- piece" flow production line using JIT and kanbans. Time to complete: 15-25 minutes depending on team skill level.

A  most important 30 to 60 minute, post-forum initiates a discussion of the pros and cons of each method-ology. This is where the learning process takes hold.



A Customer's Testimonial:

We have been using Bill Gaw's ShowTime! Lean Manufacturing Simulation Game for well over five years and have used it to introduce over 40 team members to Lean Manufacturing concepts. It allows the trainees to experience the difference between the MRP "push" system vs. the Lean "pull" system. Classroom training has its' place, but this simulation really hammers home the difference between the two different scenarios. Experiencing the difference is much more powerful than simply learning about it.

Bill has also been very responsive when we have had questions or needed additional supplies or insight. I would ,without reservation, recommend Showtime! to anyone searching for a simulation to demonstrate the benefits of Lean Manufacturing.

3. Bill Gaw's e-Library: "10-Basics of Back-to-Basics Lean Manufacturing."

Many historic, recurring day-to-day problems (perhaps the same problems that plague your operation) can be permanently eliminated by a tenacious execution of Bill's 10-Basics of Back-to-Basics Lean Manufacturing.

10-Basics for optimizing and sustaining growth and profits
10-Basics for increasing speed while improving quality
10-Basics for improving customer responsiveness
10-Basics for eliminating non-value-added costs
10-Basics for transforming a vision into reality
10-Basics for exceeding goals and expectations
10-Basics for creating a fun working environment
10-Basics for individual growth and earnings
10-Basics for creating a winning culture.

The e-Library is a grouping of 10 mini-Courses that are delivered via Internet download and can be installed on all Internet devices and a company's Intranet. You'll also be able to print hard copies and create an effective reference binder for your company trainer. (Training package also includes a "Train-the-Trainer" Manual and  a .ppt presentation: "How to Overcome Objections and Road-blocks" .)

Mini-Course No. 1: Strategic Planning & Tactical Execution

Strategic planning is a business process that many companies employ to identify their critical success targets that set the course for future growth and profits.

Mini-Course No. 2: Sales & Operations Planning

Bringing sanity to shop floor and supplier scheduling requires continuously improving the integration of sales forecasts, master schedules and day-to-day schedules.

Mini-Course No. 3: Point-of-Use Supply Chain Management

Companies will never achieve their BTB Manufacturing expectations as long as business leaders continue to talk about value-added supplier partnerships, while continuing to deal with their suppliers as adversaries.

Mini-Course No. 4: Information Integrity -

MRPII/ERP expectations will not be achieved when day-to-day production and manufacturing/supply chain control  systems are driven  by  inaccurate,  untimely  and  uncontrolled data and/or documentation.

Mini-Course No. 5: Value Stream Mapping -

Analysis of the processes which the maps represent can help you increase customer satisfaction by identifying actions to reduce process cycle time, decrease defects, reduce costs, establish customer-driven process performance measures, reduce non-value-added steps, and increase productivity are a few.

Mini-Course No. No. 6: Kaizen Management -  

Price Pritchett puts it this way," Without Kaizen, you and your employer will gradually lose ground. Eventually, you’ll be “out of business,” because the competition never stands still."

Mini-Course No. No. 7: Performance Management -

Financial numbers may tell us who's winning the war, but it takes a motivational balanced scorecard measurement system to win all the battles along the way.  Remember, without data management is just another opinion.

Mini-Course No. No. 8: Cycle Time Management -

If your business teams can handle only one strategic initiative at a time, then let it be the implementation of a cycle time reduction  program. There just isn’t any other more important program in our pursuit of profits.

Mini-Course No. No. 9: Sequential Production -

Effective shop floor control has proven elusive as  we have upgraded our manufacturing  control  system from  MRP  to MRPII  and  then  to ERP. To capture control of shop floor activities, we  need  to  stop beating  a “dead horse”  and implement  the  Sequential Production Process. The winners are!

Mini-Course No. No. 10: Production Linearity -

Companies will never achieve their full growth and profit potential if they produce more than 25% of their monthly shipment plan in the last week of the month or more than 33% of their quarterly shipment plan in the last month of the quarter. As companies struggle to remain competitive, one of the strategies by which gains in speed, quality and costs can be achieved is to pursue and achieve linear production.

4.  The Thinking Outside the Box Workshop
      CD:  PowerPoint Presentation with note page commentary

"Defend your career by developing a better package of knowledge and skills than the next person."

"The more you know how to do, and the better you do it, the more valuable you become."

                                                                                           Price Pritchett

"People are always blaming circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them" 
                                                                         George Bernard Shaw

"Lean Manufacturing,
Seminar/Webinar, Biz-in-a-Box"

As part of my Operational Excellence consultancy start-up activities, I was looking to create an initial minimum viable services package (MVS) to offer to my prospective clients. Bill’s "Lean Manufacturing, Seminar/Webinar Business-in-a-Box" became the catalyst to start pivoting and soliciting more specific feedbacks on customer wants & needs from my target market. This catalyst was instrumental in creating a core MVS and growing it effectively into a larger services portfolio. Bill’s Biz-in-a-Box jump-started my OpsInSynch consultancy by providing validated marketing ideas, presentation formats, and invaluable content.
