Continuous Improvement Champion Training
Champions are the senior managers who steer and support the entire continuous improvement programme toward business and operational objectives. They actively support the continuous improvement programme and continually work to remove roadblocks to project success.
This course is designed to provide Champions with the overall information needed to implement the continuous improvement programme. Cultural and management issues are reviewed. Strategic breakthrough problems are addressed in order to overcome barriers to implementation.
This course provides a detailed overview of Continuous Improvement concepts, tools and techniques to enable Champions to understand how the tools and techniques are deployed to drive a successful Continuous Improvement programme. “Soft” issues are also reviewed such as making continuous improvement part of everyday practice, leading the change and empowering the ground, winning the hearts and minds of the people and supporting the creation of a management system that will sustain Continuous Improvement efforts over time.
This is a practical and thought provoking “how-to” oriented workshop. The workshop will include participant exercises, video clips and the sharing of real-life examples of continuous improvement deployment.
