About this Continuous Improvement Training Course

Continuous improvement is a system of thought based on the idea that improvement is possible- and therefore should be made.

  • Continuous improvement is an attitude of mind
  • Continuous improvement is progression
  • Continuous improvement is evolution.

Sadly; some people actively resist any suggestion that improvement is necessary. They subscribe to the theory that, "If it aint broke don’t fix it".

If you want to eliminate the negative and substitute the positive, then book us to deliver this course to your team leaders, today.

The course content was great and contextual. Some of it I have covered before, but elements were new, such as the method of conflict resolution was easier to remember. The trainer gave lots of examples and was a good trainer as he kept me engaged.

Continuous Improvement Training Course Content

Continuous Improvement Training - Day One - AM

Introductions

We are here to answer this important question: How can we continually get better results?

We can get continually better results only if we engage in a process of “Continuous improvement”

Attitude determines results

Two opposing attitudes:

1. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"
This is non-progressive thinking. It is the expression of a thought against improving what is already working. "If it ain't broke" is a formula for failure.

2. Continuous improvement
This is progressive thinking. It is an argument for improving what is already working. Continuous improvement is a formula for success.

What is your goal?

Your goal can be simply stated: It is to “Add value to the market place”.

If you don’t add value to the market place your future is in doubt.
If you add value to the market place your future is assured.
The meaning of the term, “The market place” varies depending on the time of day.

  1. Sometimes the market place is your boss.
  2. Sometimes the market place is your customer.
  3. Sometimes the market place is your friend or colleague.
  4. Sometimes the market place is your family.

But no matter what time of day it is, you must add value to others.

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!
