Engaging Your People in Continuous Improvement with 1-Day Lean Training

We are proud of our Continuous Improvement (CI) training approach. We designed an affective training model (CBC) that can provide our customers quick return on their investment.

Our CBC (Capability by conversion) training course or workshop consists of good balance between theory and practical. This workshop gives clear distinctions between CI (Continuous Improvement), LEAN and Six Sigma. It also allows delegates to reflect when they physically apply what they learned back at their workplace.

CBC has achieved up to 94% conversion rate. Which means delegates are applying the tools after the course and improving their own processes. They are finding the time to convert theory to practical and add value.

Key successes:

  • Positive mind-set change
  • Reduction in process cycle times
  • Improving work environment
  • Increase throughput
  • Improving productivity
  • Bottom line savings

We invite you to learn more about our 1-day lean training in the following:

 

Programme background

Successful change requires 5 key elements and there are consequences to any missing element, as shown below.

VISION – SKILLS – INCENTIVES – RESOURCE – ACTION PLAN

We are working together to ensure every element is covered. To meet the requirements for the 2nd element (Skills), we need to build a company own “Continuous Improvement” (CI) team and culture.

Figure 1: Relationship between vision, skills, incentives, resources and action plan

Why?

  • To ensure knowledge transfer from the IMIG team to the company’s team.
  • To ensure change sustainability.
  • To build a CI culture – make it a habit.
  • To support the company’s long-term vision.

This workshop gives the selected candidates an equal opportunity to acquire new skills and techniques aimed at continuously improving the way the company operates. The training is designed to deliver both practical and soft skills and will follow a ‘Prepare Me – Show Me – Help Me – Sustain Me’ model where during and post training coaching will help embed and sustain learning.

 

Workshop topics

We follow a tailored agenda which suits the company’s culture and aiming to follow each module with practical workshop activity.

Feedback Scores

To collate information on the perceived quality of training delivery from a participant’s point of view, a dual evaluation sheet is completed at the end of the training or workshop. The evaluation covers:

  • Objective scoring across a range of workshop elements shown (see figure 3)
  • Subjective comments [good and bad] on aspects of the delivery methods utilised and the course structure (see table 1)
