Lean Manufacturing

"We must constantly retool ourselves, become perpetual students, or we risk becoming obsolete."

                                                                                   Price Pritchett

And here's how to retool yourself:

You need to identify and master the basics of 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 the basics and best practices of lean manufacturing.

If you want  to:

1.  Become a key team member/leader/manager/executive
2.  Focus your energy on the significant issues
3.  Transform your work environment from drudgery to fun
4.  Minimize your day-to-day stress level
5.  Master the basics and techniques of lean manufacturing
6.  Exceed your goals and expectations
7.  Earn recognition, promotions, and higher earnings.

Then you need:

Bill Gaw's Lean Six Sigma PowerPoint Presentations, "Make-a-Difference" training.

Most training materials today are either Adobe .pdf e-books with little or no effective graphics... PowerPoint charts with no commentary to explain the content of the slides... videos that tell you what to do but with very little implementation and/or optimization “How To,”... and seminars/webinars that present lots of materials but most attendee’s retention rate is less than 25%.

Bill Gaw's, Lean Manufacturing PowerPoint Presentations on the other hand include powerful, PowerPoint charts and graphics, "plus" annotated note pages with slide commentary and "lessons learned" by Bill a "been there, done that" lean manufacturing champion.

If you need help for exceeding your goals and expectations, you have come
to the right place. Here you will find Bill Gaw's, back-to-basics, solutions presented via 9-PowerPoint Presentations that provide the foundation for achieving positive results... Powerpoint presentations for accelerating individual success... Powerpoint presentations that help you to become a "make-it-happen" individual... Powerpoint presentations that returns sanity to the work place and raises the level of individual performance.

   A customer 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" exper-tise, Bill is certainly one of the few persons I'd classify as "Coach of the Coaches"!

Paulo Lindgren Lean Six-Sigma Consultant
and MBA/M.Sc. Professor"

9-Lean Six Sigma PowerPoint Presentations
Each training presentation has between 35 and 56 PowerPoint
slides with note page commentary and "Lessons Learned."
by Bill Gaw, a Lean Manufacturing Champion.

                 expenses, and time away from the job.

Purpose:  Provide Six Sigma knowledge and skills in a 
                structured program... knowledge that is a requisite for
                career advancement and a successful job search.

Benefits:  Lean Six Sigma PowerPoint Presentation Training
                will help you and your company: 

* Improve strategic planning and tactical execution
* Optimize operations and supply chain performance
* Reduce work place stress levels
* Eliminate non-value-added activities and costs
* Stabilize sales and operations planning
* Increase speed, improve quality and customer satisfaction
* Exceed performance goals and financial forecasts
* Transform work into fun again.

Below is an example of a Lean Six Sigma PowerPoint slide with its "note page" commentary and lesson learned:

Note Page

Without data, you’re just another opinion. That says it all. To improve our performance, we need to first learn how to capture and then apply statistical data to our situation analysis. This action is a primary requisite to effective problem solving. Slide 3-3 presents an overview of a manufacturing by facts system.

Lesson Learned: The more that people use real time data to perform situation analysis and to establish and track corrective actions, the more comfortable and effective they become at interpreting and applying data-on-the-run. It is my contention that exceptional leaders make quick and quality decisions because they have mastered the skill of interpreting data-on-the-run. Bur, when a leader says, “That doesn’t sound right to me. What about .. . . .?” He has put to use, what I call, the test of reasonableness and this ability separates the exceptional leaders from the pack. To develop the ability to apply the “test of reasonableness,” a leader must first become an expert at interpreting data-on-the-run.

The Huge Learning Difference

If you were watching a video, attending a seminar, or a webinar would you be able to take down the above in your notes for later reference... I don't think so. With Bill Gaw's approach, there is no need to take notes because you have the training slides and relevant dialog for future reference.

Lean Six Sigma PowerPoint Training

For more than 15 years, our 1500 plus Customers and 15,000 plus MBBP Bulletin Subscribers have looked to Bill Gaw as a trusted publisher of "back-to-basics," lean Six Sigma , training materials and programs. Distant learning that helps improve the spirit and performance of individuals and their organization. We invite you to join the crowd?

Compared to many other manufacturing coaches, Bill Gaw avoids a general, philosophical approach. Rather he aims to be intensely practical, providing back-to-basics, how-to information for individuals and businesses that want to achieve their full growth and earning potentials.

Another customer saying it even better than we can:

"Thank Bill for the "Free-be". I can already see where I can apply much of it to my office operation. By the way, I did not just buy the Training Library I bought the "Performance Measurement Training Package." The Training Library has been reviewed and re-reviewed many times already and many slides used to train some of my staff. Thanks for a great product."
                                                                                  Dave Krug


Believe it... "there is no free lunch?

If you search the Internet for Six Sigma training, you'll come across a ton of stuff... and most of it free.

Now I've had people tell me that they don't need to purchase anything because "you can get so much free stuff on the net."  

Admittedly, like I said a second ago, there is a ton of free stuff on the net...and if you put it all together you'd probably have over a 100 hours of YouTube videos, and a million pages of white papers and case studies.  

So if you had over 100 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, "make-a-difference," Lean Six Sigma , PowerPoint training materials are not for free... but much less than you would imagine.

Another customer saying it even better than we can:

"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."

      Luis Nascimento, DMA Consultores, Porto, Portugal

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. Lewis Carroll in “Alice in Wonderland” makes a good case for it: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” said Alice. “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where…,” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
