Business Improvement Programme

The Business Improvement Programme has been developed to support businesses to deliver sustainable efficiency and productivity gains that will create market competitiveness and a solid operational platform for future growth. The programme is open to those businesses who recognise that continuous improvement is key to sustainable growth and that their workflows can always be better.

A mixture of interactive workshops and workplace based support will be delivered to delegates so they gain an understanding of the foundations for efficiency improvement and learn techniques for the successful implementation of real sustainable change. There will be a particular focus on creating awareness, understanding and providing practical tools to manage the behavioural barriers that prevent full engagement with, and implementation of, the business improvement process.

Participants must commit to a 4 one day workshops spread across several months and will be supported in between workshops to apply the learning to their business. All sessions will be interactive with exercises for delegates to work on together so they lean from each other.

Delegates will need to practice the tools and techniques in the workplace and modular workbooks will be provided which will help delegates during and well beyond the delivery of the workshops.

Sponsoring business leaders will be required to support delegates to ensure that they achieve maximum impact back in the workplace to implement successful and sustainable change.
