Are you In Search of a Better Way?

Do you want to help transform your company's vision into reality?
Do you want to exceed individual and organization goals and expectations?
Do you want to reduce stress and create a fun working environment?
Does your company need to increase speed and improve quality?
Does your company need to reduce non-value-added activities/costs?
Is improving customer satisfaction important to your company's success?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, stay connected and you'll discover how Bill Gaw's tutorage, "4-Requisites for Strategic Planning Success" has helped hundreds of companies exceed their strategic objectives. Believe this... for you and your company to reach their full growth and earning potentials you must accomplish two things:

1. You must identify, implement and master the essentials of strategic planning and tactical execution.

2. You must develop a process for obtaining “top-to-bottom,” company commitment to the flawless execution of these essentials . This commitment becomes a launching pad for achievements beyond all expectations.

Strategic Planning Tutorage

For more than 15 years, our 1900 plus Customers and 22,000 plus Bulletin subscribers have looked to Bill Gaw as a trusted developer of management development and team training materials. Materials that help improve the spirit and performance of individuals, teams, and organizations.

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

Bill Gaw's management development and team training materials on the other hand include powerful, Power-Point charts and graphics, "plus" annotated note pages with "slide commentary" and "lessons learned" by a "been there, done that" business professional. A value added, learning experience on "how to" design, implement and optimize a strategic planning initiative for individual and company success. 

Our customers study their learning-modules content, print relevant sections, and highlight passages that are important to understanding and executing their strategic change initiatives. The resultant blueprint is used for supporting and empowering multi-function, self-directed, work teams in their pursuit of company's strategic objectives. Videos/Webinars don’t come close to providing the same results.

Two Reasons Why You Should  Choose Bill Gaw's Strategic planning training

1. Because his strategic planning and tactical execution processes and techniques have been personally proven to be successful in difficult working environments.

2. Because the majority of the knowledge transfer comes from his case study of Palomar Systems (a Division of ESI):

Palomar Systems annual "Strategic Plans" planned for an increase in new product introductions, greater profit margins and increased sales. Within four years, Palomar Systems increased their product profit margin from 32% to 55% while growing the company from $17 million to a whopping $250 million. This was a classic example of the benefits gained through transforming the strategic plan into relevant tactical planning and execution carried out by empowering multi-function, self-directed work teams... one of the key essentials of successful strategic planning. 

Lean Manufacturing Training
It's the "how to" that really counts!

"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.

"Bill is one of the most prolific individuals in the consulting industry and profession. He is a true thought leader and a great coach -- one of the best. His advice is golden and he has the respect of his colleagues worldwide. We all religiously read his articles and news-letters because they are informative, educational and right on the mark."

1. CD - Strategic Planning & Tactical Execution Tutorial -  Strategic planning is a effective lean leadership 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.

2. CD, Value Stream Mapping T-Module -  Maps and flowcharts help make work visible. Increased visibility improves communication and understanding, and provides a common frame of reference for those involved with the business and work process.

3. CD - Thinking Outside the Box e-Book - Skills are required by everybody. Each and everyone needs to continuously challenge and expand their ways of thinking to enhance personal and business success.

4. CD - Lean Manufacturing - If your company needs to increase speed, improve quality while reducing non-value added costs this training module has the road map. Many of the principles and techniques presented are applicable to all industries.  

5. CD - Quality Management Tools - Interactive ISO Checklist and QC Manual and Procedure templates.
