As part of an ambitious business change programme, CPE Pressure Vessels appointed In-Comm Training and Business Services to deliver a Level 2 Certificate in Business Improvement Techniques. The entire company workforce comprising both office and workshop teams completed the qualification over 18 months, with a 100% pass rate. Focusing on problem-solving techniques using real-world examples, the course has helped foster a culture of Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement across all areas of the business.
A wide range of subjects and business improvement techniques were covered over the 18 month course, to name a few of the modules: Complying with statutory regulations and organisational safety requirements, Contributing to effective team working, Contributing to the application of workplace organisation techniques, Contributing to the application of continuous improvement techniques (Kaizen), Contributing to the development of visual management systems and Contributing to the application of problem solving techniques.
We covered a wide range of topics and all learning was focused towards CPE and using real and live projects to apply the various techniques as we studied them. We found that we made some great progress in developing various areas of the business during the course and we have continued to grow and progress with this.
We are now running an internal version of the course that will ensure any new employees are at the same level and that we have consistent methods throughout the company.
