John’s Publications, Presentations, Clients & Press Quotations

Invite me to give a presentation or provide Mistake-Proofing Training at your location.  I’m a college professor most of the time, but I do travel a few days each month and am available more during the summer.  I offer one-day initial training classes (check-out the outline), and hold a half-day follow-up class 4-6 weeks later where particiants each report on their mistake-proofing implementation results.  If each person in a group of 30 implements one mistake-proofing device, savings reported at the follow-up session can be in the $10,000’s or $100,000’s range; but that is just the start. Savings can be dramatic for a company-wide implementation. I can also provide 1 and 2 hour “awareness” presentations to famililarize participants with the basic concepts of mistake-proofing.

If I can’t be of assistance, I’ll be happy to suggest other training providers and resources for your consideration and comparison, so you can make the best choice for your needs. Many of these firms are listed on the Resources page
