The e2 CI System for DIY Lean Training & Education

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.
