Don was working with Red River College’s Market Driven Training department to develop a training program for lean manufacturing. However, there was little understanding of the concept among most manufacturers, which pointed to the need of an instructional video showing the success stories of Canadian manufacturers who were going lean.
Don developed a partnership between Red River College and High Performance Manufacturing in Ontario to develop the video with funding from Industry Canada.
The key deliverable was a ten minute video on VHS and CD, which was distributed across the country. An animation excerpt of this video still plays on YouTube, with over 60,000 views.
This has been viewed more than 70,000 times on YouTube, so is obviously a popular resource for lean trainers.
