Part of what has me excited these days is the opportunity to bring together and promote the great lean learning and implementation programs of Gemba Consulting and Kaizen Institute worldwide. I say these are "great" not to blow our own trumpet but because Kaizen Institute has been practicing and refining the art of teaching people about lean, TPS and continuous improvement for the past 25 years, as Gemba Consulting has for the past 13 years. Together we have a made and learned from a lot of mistakes, and have a lot of keys to success we want to share. Of course it is first and foremost about the people within these organizations.
One of these great services is what we call Kaizen College. In plain terms it is a well-developed and comprehensive curriculum for hands-on training in a wide variety of practical lean subjects. These are offered in many countries in Europe, India, Africa and Latin America already, and we are working hard to introduce Kaizen College into the North American, Middle East and Asian markets in the near future. The list of scheduled public training courses can always be found on this Kaizen Institute website events page.
We will introduce our first Kaizen College session in China in June. The topic is Total Flow Management - a 2-day deep dive into the systems, tools and principles that enable Just in Time production, lean logistics, basic stability and continuous improvement. All of this and more is taught through a series of case studies, exercises and simulations over 2 days.
The dates are June 23 & 24, the location is Shanghai, China. The full details can be found in the Total Flow Management Training brochure in English and also in Chinese: 全面流动管理（TFM）公开课.
Carsten Otto, a new friend of mine who is acting as mentor to many of our young consultants in China, is leading this training event. Carsten brings decades from around the world. His enthusiasm for helping people grasp kaizen concepts and put them into action is infectious. Highlights of what Carsten and our local consulting team will bring include:
1 total flow management hands-on simulation
10 case studies
15 videos demonstrating total flow management principles
25 years of experience in lean implementationIf you or someone you know could benefit from attending this 2-day seminar in Shanghai on June 23 and 24, 2011, please contact us. Comments are moderated to filter spam and inappropriate content. There may be a delay before your comment is published.
