Examples of how we support clients

Our goal is to contribute to customers success. We serve a wide variety of clients with different needs. We begin by listening. The common recommendation to clients is learning by doing. Here are some examples.

On-site Training

We deliver training on-site at your location. Our instructors combine their experience, the content of our online learning library, exercises and class room interaction to maximize practical learning. We offer both standard programs to and the ability to customize according to customer needs. 

Certification of In-House Continuous Improvement Leaders

We blend our online learning library with class room exercises, hands-on project work and individual coaching to help clients to develop the next generation continuous improvement leaders. We offer the traditional six sigma black belt and green belt programs, and we deliver customize certification programs to meet the needs of our clients, building on our online learning library bodies of knowledge in lean and continuous improvement. Learn more about development and certification of in-house expertise.

Leveraging the Online Library for a Learning Organization

Gemba Academy has built a comprehensive online learning library for lean, six sigma and continuous improvement topics. We have hundreds of hours of essential learning and development to enable a successful business transformation. We help clients structure learning paths, design learning systems, run grass-roots teach-and-do sessions, and structure in-house capability development programs. 

  • Learn at your own pace. Watch the short video lessons when you have time, test your knowledge with quizzes, and find ideas to improve your work.
  • Learn hands-on. Follow the step-by-step practice guides that help you try out various continuous improvement methods.
  • Expand the circle. Use the online videos to teach lean principles and methods to others, a few minutes at a time, to bring the team together towards a common goal.

What makes the Gemba Academy consulting services unique is the combination of our online learning library, deep experience of our team of experts, and commitment to developing the capabilities of our clients for long-term success.


Our consultants bring decades of teaching and practicing continuous improvement across a variety of industries and processes. They combine their experience and know-how to show clients how to apply the lean and six sigma methods in our online learning library. 


Sometimes you are already doing all of the above and just need some advice, an outside perspective or a person with more experience to guide your next step. We support clients via coaching calls and videoconferences, as well as periodic on-site coaching visits.
