Training for Continuous Improvement

Most organisations lose sight of logic when they cut training budgets, which results in organisational resources attacking the muscles rather than the fat

Kaizen Institute India deals in IQ (implementation and qualification services for Kaizen), Lean Training and other world-class practices. It also qualifies people as Certified KAIZEN™ practitioners. Since the company focuses on provision of knowledge, consulting and qualification services, Mr. Jayant Murthy strongly believes in training the workforce accordingly.

Mr. Murthy tells us, “We provide various kinds of skills and techniques to our clients that help eliminate waste so that they can become more productive, cost-efficient and improve their delivery skills through implementation, therefore learning better. We also provide CKP (Certified KAIZEN™ Practitioner) training to some of the people in our clients’ organisations, so that they become internal change agents or champions. This process often referred to as ‘train-the-trainer’.”

The key objective behind such training is to help clients change their viewpoints. Mr. Murthy believes that if viewpoints do not change, clients would continue to do and act as they were already doing, and therefore continue to get the same results. This explains their strong belief in ‘changing the thinking’.

Training also helps in visualising an improved state, which in turn infuses a keenness that makes one want to learn and grow.

Most organisations lose sight of logic when they cut training budgets. This results in organisational resources attacking the muscles rather than fat. Organisations need to understand that cost consumption takes place through waste, excess inventory, breakdown of machines, etc., which if reduced can lead to a amount of savings. Reducing training budgets results in loss of skill days within the organisation. During challenging times, it is important to learn new skills to survive and improve.
