Does your CEO know the goal of your company? A lot of questions!!! Well if you want answers do not miss this month’s meeting. Imagine implementing ISO and keeping the CEO happy, keeping the staff happy and, most important, keeping YOU happy!!!
The second part of this presentation is on learning how you can get free money for training (you want to talk about keeping the CEO happy!). Don’t miss this month’s meeting; you are getting two for the price of one. Plus we have a great barbecue planed as well.
Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership ( Mass MEP) will then present: The Value Proposition of a Sustained Continuous Improvement Program and The Associated Grant Funding Opportunities Available to Implement These Programs.
Mass MEP provides employers and their employees with the training necessary to introduce and sustain a cultural change of Continuous Improvement. Implementing a Continuous Improvement Program utilizing Lean techniques will facilitate the reduction of process lead time providing better customer service. It will open capacity opportunities for future growth and provide measurable improvements in asset utilization. The improvement in asset utilization will include shorter set up times, lower inventory levels and reduction in the Days Outstanding for Receivables.
Training programs such as this require an investment of both human and financial capital. There are grant programs available to companies that will match the investment an employer is willing to make dollar for dollar up to $250,000. Mass MEP’s staff will work with you to develop the best training curriculum and will provide the guidance to apply for Work Force Training Grants available to pay for the training programs.
