Best Practices

Toast Kaizen, the video that started it all, was created by GBMP President Bruce Hamilton in his kitchen more than 15 years ago. Thanks to the uncomplicated but powerful learning opportunity it created - a simple explanation of waste and kaizen coupled with the importance of direct observation and the high value of "small changes for the better", it was a hit. A man simply making toast for his wife - who knew one day we'd offer it in 21 languages? Many more videos were to follow and GBMP is extremely proud to have had eight of them honored with the prestigious Shingo Institute Research & Professional Publication award. Videos in this category are Single Point Lessons - nearly all are less than 30 minutes and cover one specific Lean tool or methodology, such as Pokayoke or CEDAC. Watch them in order or jump around depending on where you are on your Lean journey.
