Watch the brief video at left for an overview of GBMP's Lean training services and workforce development philosophy.
"Continuous Improvement is a philosophical and methodological approach to business that strives to provide ever-increasing value to the customer through total employee involvement in the reduction of non-value added wastes and their associated costs. Continuous improvement is not about the things you do well - that's work. Continuous improvement is about removing the things that get in the way of your work. The headaches, the things that slow you down, that's what continuous improvement is all about."
- Bruce Hamilton, President, GBMP
