Our Con­tent Devel­op­ment team is hard at work to add even more fresh, new con­tent to Gem­ba Acad­e­my’s pre­mier train­ing library. With a focus on pro­vid­ing the lat­est knowl­edge and skills, these upcom­ing cours­es are designed to enhance your learn­ing expe­ri­ence and sup­port your pro­fes­sion­al growth. Here are some of the cours­es that are cur­rent­ly under development:

Internal logistics introduction to internal logistics new videos

New Inter­nal Logis­tics Course

Intro­duc­tion to Inter­nal Logistics

As orga­ni­za­tions take steps toward achiev­ing con­tin­u­ous flow it’s com­mon for one or more sup­port­ing sys­tems to strug­gle. A typ­i­cal prob­lem is that mate­r­i­al han­dling and sup­ply process­es can’t keep up with the faster pace of one-piece flow. In oth­er words, we need to build a sys­tem of inter­nal logis­tics that enables con­tin­u­ous flow. Learn the steps for build­ing an inter­nal logis­tics sys­tem from cre­at­ing a plan for every part (PFEP), prepar­ing a parts super­mar­ket, devel­op­ing deliv­ery routes, design­ing racks, con­tain­ers and con­veyance sys­tems, and doc­u­ment­ing stan­dard work for logistics.

Internal logistics what is a water spider new videos

New Inter­nal Logis­tics Course

What is a Water Spider?

The water spi­der plays a crit­i­cal role in help­ing an orga­ni­za­tion achieve smooth flow. They move mate­ri­als through an oper­a­tion, step in to relieve team mem­bers, and pre­vent non-rou­tine tasks from inter­rupt­ing the work­flow. Learn how the role of a water spi­der dif­fers from that of an inter­nal logis­tics deliv­ery dri­ver, the three types of water spi­der tasks, how to set their work inter­val, and how to cre­ate stan­dard work for a water spi­der role.

Internal logistics how to build a supermarket new videos

New Inter­nal Logis­tics Course

How to Build a Supermarket

The super­mar­ket is a parts stor­age area that serves as a key build­ing block of a flow-focused inter­nal logis­tics sys­tem. Learn the main dif­fer­ences between super­mar­kets and tra­di­tion­al stor­age, its advan­tages, and the steps for devel­op­ing, sus­tain­ing, and improv­ing super­mar­ket operations.

Internal logistics how to design internal logistics delivery routes new videos

New Inter­nal Logis­tics Course

How to Design Inter­nal Logis­tics Deliv­ery Routes

The design and oper­a­tion of deliv­ery routes are cen­tral to the suc­cess of an inter­nal logis­tics sys­tem. Learn the four com­mon types of deliv­ery routes, the role of pull sig­nals in logis­tics infor­ma­tion flow, how to cre­ate deliv­ery route stan­dard work, how to fol­low the step-by-step approach to design­ing a con­tin­u­ous replen­ish­ment deliv­ery route, and more.

The bridge game new videos

New Sim­u­la­tion

The Bridge Game

Exer­cis­es, games, and sim­u­la­tions are fun, inter­ac­tive ways to learn new con­cepts. The Bridge Game is a hands-on activ­i­ty that teams or indi­vid­u­als can do in thir­ty min­utes or less. Facil­i­ta­tors can use the Bridge Game to teach the impor­tance of cre­ative think­ing, the impor­tance of under­stand­ing sci­en­tif­ic prin­ci­ples, or just as a fun way to break the ice or start a work­shop or meeting.

Tpm education and training new videos

New TPM Course

TPM Edu­ca­tion & Training

The TPM Edu­ca­tion and Train­ing pil­lar is a key enabler of all oth­er TPM meth­ods, tech­niques, and prac­tices. By fol­low­ing the step-by-step approach to build­ing this pil­lar, we design and deploy long-term plans to devel­op people’s skills that are key to rais­ing moti­va­tion, improv­ing equip­ment per­for­mance, and meet­ing busi­ness objectives.

Facilitation new videos

New Course


A key role of a facil­i­ta­tor is to help par­tic­i­pants of meet­ings, work­shops, con­fer­ences, or oth­er events meet cer­tain objec­tives with­in a set amount of time. Facil­i­ta­tion skills and prac­tices help engage peo­ple in change, improve­ment, or inno­va­tion activ­i­ties. Learn what a facil­i­ta­tor is and is not, how they facil­i­tate dif­fer­ent types of activ­i­ties and the sev­en key facil­i­ta­tion skills.

Tpm p m analysis new videos

New TPM Course

P‑M Analy­sis

P‑M Analy­sis is a tech­nique for address­ing chron­ic loss­es. This approach to cause analy­sis thor­ough­ly stud­ies the M, or Mech­a­nisms, of a spe­cif­ic prob­lem phe­nom­e­non relat­ed to equip­ment, or P. Learn the dif­fer­ences between chron­ic loss­es and spo­radic loss­es, the char­ac­ter­is­tics of P‑M Analy­sis com­pared to oth­er com­mon cause analy­sis approach­es, the eight steps for con­duct­ing P‑M Analy­sis, and a typ­i­cal project team and how they use a sto­ry­board to visu­al­ize their work.

Change management new videos

New Course

Change Man­age­ment

Change man­age­ment offers a struc­tured process for plan­ning, prepar­ing, imple­ment­ing, and mon­i­tor­ing suc­cess­ful change in an orga­ni­za­tion. Learn the sev­en com­mon rea­sons that change efforts fail, proven frame­works for avoid­ing these fail­ure modes, and how to form and oper­ate a steer­ing com­mit­tee that is able to man­age risk, engage stake­hold­ers, and mon­i­tor the progress of a change initiative.

How to run virtual kata in the classroom new videos

New Kata Course

How to Run Vir­tu­al Kata in the Classroom

Expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing is an effec­tive way to learn con­tin­u­ous improve­ment con­cepts, but what hap­pens when par­tic­i­pants can only con­nect vir­tu­al­ly? The answer is that there are ways to vir­tu­al­ly prac­tice con­tin­u­ous improve­ment con­cepts, includ­ing the Kata in the Class­room work­shop. Orig­i­nal­ly tar­get­ed at Mid­dle School teach­ers, Kata in the Class­room has now found its way into K‑12, col­lege, and cor­po­rate edu­ca­tion­al set­tings around the world. This course uses a cloud-based spread­sheet instead of a jig­saw puz­zle and pro­vides tips and tricks to suc­cess­ful­ly run the work­shop virtually.

Sev­en Qual­i­ty Con­trol (7QC) Tools

The Sev­en Qual­i­ty Con­trol (7 QC) Tools are an essen­tial­ set of graph­ing tech­niques that are used to iden­ti­fy and fix prob­lems that under­mine prod­uct or process qual­i­ty. The 7 QC Tools pro­vide con­tin­u­ous improve­ment prac­ti­tion­ers with a sys­tem­at­ic approach for iden­ti­fy­ing and trou­bleshoot­ing qual­i­ty issues. Learn the sev­en qual­i­ty con­trol tools and how to use them with­in your orga­ni­za­tion. *This course is an update to our exist­ing course.
