"Make-a-Difference" Supply Chain Management Training

For more than 15 years, our 1700 plus Customers and 15,000 plus MBBP Bulletin Subscribers have looked to Bill Gaw as a trusted developer of Power-Point-Plus tutorials and training programs. Training materials that help improve the spirit and performance of individuals, teams, and organizations.

Most training materials today are videos that present training materials at a fast pace with most viewer’s retention rate being less than 25%. And, videos perform poorly as a reference document.

Bill Gaw's tutorials and training modules 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" operations professional.

Our customers study the tutorial and T-modules content, print relevant sections, and highlight passages that are important to understanding and executing their change initiatives. The resultant blueprint is used for training and empowering their procurement teams in their pursuit of supply chain performance objectives. Videos 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 company ladder, the experience of someone who's "been there, done that" can be invaluable. Throughout his training  material  Bill Gaw provides expert knowledge, support, empathy, respect and most important, the wisdom of experience. And, he's always just an email away.

Another plus is that every training package includes a "Train-the-Trainer" manual should your training objective be DIY, on-site, team training.


   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"!
