Membership in a Community
GBMP members are organizations and practitioners dedicated to operational excellence. The GBMP membership program is a natural extension of our mission to help people and companies become more productive and profitable through the use of Lean & Six Sigma philosophies and tools. The goal of our membership initiative is to advance the regional competitiveness of member organizations by allowing for peer to peer sharing within a trusted network of CI practitioners of reliable methods, philosophies and techniques. GBMP members all share an interest in the Continuous Improvement philosophy and recognize the value of belonging to a community that will help, support and inspire you on your Lean journey to operational excellence. GBMP one day workshops are now free for all of our members & Gold Members get access to our huge library of streaming content, including all of GBMP's Lean training DVDs.
"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
Our specially designed workshops and Lean and Six Sigma certificate courses, as well as GBMP's annual Northeast L.E.A.N. Conference, plant tours, seminars and webinars reflect our philosophy that the process of acquiring knowledge is best done through tacit learning, so almost all of GBMP training events divide the day between classroom learning and "shop-floor" implementation of concepts learned in the classroom. Our Lean Certificate course is aligned with the Nationally Recognized SME Lean Certification program and we are an educational affiliate of The Shingo Institute with four certified instructors on our team.
