Vincent has numerous industry qualifications in Continuous Improvement, Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing as well as having a Level 5 qualification in Coaching and Mentoring and a further education teaching qualification.
“Continuous Improvement is more than just improving a process. If you do not involve the people carrying out the process and make the improvement theirs, the improvements will not be sustained. There are 3 questions to ask.
- 1 – Does it make sense at their level and in a language they understand.
- 2 – Can they take ownership and have a sense of pride in what they are doing.
- 3 – Do they see their colleagues, their manager and the senior leadership team behave in a way to support what they are trying to improve.”
We will be benefiting from Vincent experience and knowledge in masterclasses and question and answer sessions on tools and techniques from improvement, monitoring improvements, engaging with your team and selling it to the senior team.
Vincent will introduce you to some tools and techniques to help with improvements but also help you understand how to engage people.
