The e2 Continuous Improvement System
Developed by Shingo Prize recipient Bruce Hamilton, this groundbreaking training system contains everything you need to begin, re-energize or standardize your Continuous Improvement training and implementation. This system is based upon the three critical aspects of the Toyota Production System: Foundations, Countermeasures and Management. This is a "learn-and-do" training product combining both explicit learning in the form of a workbook, on-line reinforcement (an on-line assistant component that allows students to independently check/validate their learning) and DVD lessons, and tacit learning in the form of practical exercises and projects. Tacit learning, or learning by doing, is essential to understanding and implementing TPS.
Training System Contents:
1 Facilitator's Guide – A facilitators guide is included which details instructions on how to best implement Continuous Improvement/Lean and the e2 Continuous Improvmement kit. Click here to see an excerpt from the Faciliitator's Guide
1 CD with over a dozen Lesson Forms, Visuals and Instructions to accompany the e2 CI workbooks and hands-on exercises.
