4 Stars: Best Lean DVD Training Series Ever! (Amazon, 11/09/2009)
"The GBMP DVD training series is a great way to help your company learn about Lean. The plant tours help people visualize what Lean looks like in companies that do it well. The Toast DVD drives right to the heart of lean by explaining the 7 wastes and teaching how to look for them and eliminate them. Bruce Hamilton and his team hit on all the things that get in the way of a successful Lean transformation. The DVD's are just the right length of time, there's music, and they are very entertaining. They are not snoozers like a lot of training videos. The videos are a great way to introduce the Lean topics and get feedback, ideas, and engagement from employees. The common theme, "Everybody, Everyday" has become our mission."
“I use the Toast video in my classes...it's easily the student’s favorite part of the course! As a City Administrator, I've also used these concepts in motor vehicle registrations...and I had happy customers! Good, relevant "stuff"!”
