You’ve read a few books, taken some classes, and you know what the Lean principles are but where do you start? Learn how to put your knowledge into practice using Enna’s Training Packages.
Train your workforce to be active and engaging Lean Experts who take ownership of their workplace and drive lasting sustainable change throughout the organization. These people have creative time and cost saving ideas; if only they were given the support to implement them. We have designed our materials for these up and coming experts; providing the supportive materials for both the first time facilitator and seasoned trainer.
Have you ever sat through a training video and not remembered any of the key points made? Why is it that in seminars/classes you don’t tend to retain concepts as well? It is passive learning. People retain key concepts better the more senses that they use – when they see, hear, feel, and do. Our training and implementation packages are designed to be dynamic for the participant, not a passive time filler.
Our training packages integrate shop floor activities so that participants have the opportunity to immediately apply the concepts, methodologies, and tools to their workplace. You will generate results to realize immediate benefits for your customers, employees, and entire organization.
Enna’s training packages are designed to fit your scheduling constraints. Whether you train in small increments over several days or dedicate an entire week to implement, each training package is broken down logically into training portions and implementation sections.
Train your staff with the most comprehensive, ongoing programs that will pay for themselves in the shortest amount of time. The core training materials are reusable and the participant workbooks and forms are easily replenished for countless training sessions. Unlike videos which are often dry and can quickly become outdated, the material in our Training Packages stay relevant.
You trained your employees and implemented Lean tools last year and you’re wondering why it’s not being sustained. Do your existing employees have forms and the knowledge of how to use them daily? Do they have a simple way to train new hires in the principles of Lean and how they are practiced within your organization?
An important aspect of a sustainable Lean program is the integration of regular training and daily implementation. Our products are an effective way to both train new employees and provide your existing employees with a solid base to continually learn from.
Encourage team building within your organization through group training and implementation with the training package that fits your needs. When people brainstorm together to search out solutions, they will come up with many different and creative ideas. This combined effort will enable them to implement the best actions and assign ongoing improvement tasks to the people involved. When everyone in a team knows that he/she has a part in the process and the end result, they will take more ownership in the improvement process.
