The "Fad of the Year Club" is the process many companies are engaged in today. They select one or a few of the systems, technologies, and techniques from the 100 or so that are getting significant publicity. There is no shortage of those that promise to solve your problems. Each may be a viable tool worthy of serious consideration. Unfortunately, too often they are poorly selected, poorly understood, inadequately supported, and prematurely abandoned for some other imitative  from the list of 100. They fail during implementation, perform poorly, or backfire making things worse than they were before. Those that do not show quick results are dropped and the process is repeated over and over again in a vain attempt to find the key to Operational Excellence manufacturing.

The primary reason for failure to meet expectations is: Lack of Lean Manufacturing Leadership Knowledge and Implementation Skills.

"Make-a-Difference" Manufacturing Knowledge and Know-How

Knowledge and implementation know-how you'll not find in the
books at Amazon.com, neither in YouTube videos,
nor in Google PowerPoint presentation.  

Most training materials today are Videos/Webinars that tell you what to do but with very little practical implementation and/or optimization “know how.” Videos/ Webinars present their story at a fast pace but most viewer’s retention rate is less than 25% and videos and webinars perform poorly as a training and reference document.

Bill Gaw's lean manufacturing PowerPoint-Plus tutorials on the other hand include powerful, Power-Point-Plus charts and graphics, with annotated note pages with "slide commentary" and "lessons learned" by a "been there, done that" operations professional. A value added, learning experience on "how to" design, implement and optimize manufacturing initiatives by focusing on the "basics" of Operational Excellence manufacturing. Companies that focus on computer hardware and software solutions have their "cart before the horse."  Without a commitment to identifying and mastering the basics of Operational Excellence manufacturing, individuals and companies will never reach their full growth and earning potentials

Manufacturing managers study their PowerPoint-Plus tutorial content, print relevant sections, and highlight techniques and practices that are important to understanding and master. The resultant game plans are used for training and empowering their teams to exceed their goals and expectations. Videos/Webinars don’t provide the same capabilities and their performance results are minimal.

One of the  keys to success is having a great coach. Whether you're in the trenches or working your way up the corporate ladder, the experience of someone who's "been there, done that" can be invaluable. Throughout the PowerPoint-Plus e-Library content,  Bill Gaw provides expert, back-to-basics manufacturing knowledge, support, empathy, respect and most important, the wisdom of experience. And, he's always just an email away.

It's the "how to" that makes a difference!

"Bill Gaw's training is focused on the "how to." Unlike other training materials that tell you only what you need to do... Bill's training presents what you need to do and then he shows you how to do it.                                      
                                    T.J. Imholte, VP Integrated Systems
                                                  Advance Storage Products

"Identifying the essentials of Manufacturing Management as targets of kaizen is definitely a powerful and winning strategy. Bill's focus on the essentials propelled ESI's Component Equipment Division growth from $18 to $240 million while increasing our gross profit margin from 32% to 56%. And. it all happened in five years and without adding any space."                                              
                                      Mark Klug, Group President, ESI

"Your training materials are the easiest and fastest way to understand the practicalities of manufacturing success 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."

            Luis Nascimento, DMA Consultores, Porto, Portugal

“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 a business lean and effective”

And, It's Better than Attending a Seminar/Webinars

With expert commentary and "lessons learned" it's like attending a seminar in person, having Bill guide you personally through his Operational Excellence, lean manufacturing operations methodology. Plus, you'll have all of Bill's "commentary and lessons learned" for future reference and team training. Live seminars/webinars just don't provide the same capability and performance results.


   A supporter saying it better than we can::

"Bill has helped me a lot, either by providing clear and precise directions whenever I asked, or by sharing much of his deep knowledge in his Website, bbasicsllc.com. Managing, with excellence, the combination of sound theoretical knowledge with successful "hands-on" expertise, Bill is certainly one of the few persons I'd classify as "Mentor of the Coaches"!
