Continuous Improvement to Systems and Processes(E-Learning)



Although it may sound like an exhausting and never ending struggle, continuous improvement is actually about instituting processes and work practices that will direct the evolution of your organisation. This course covers continuous improvement ideals, the different facets to continuous improvement, the process of continually improving your organisation and how to implement continuous improvement.

Market forces place increased pressure on organisations to improve their products and services. To remain competitive in this environment, organisations must continually seek ways to improve all aspects of their business - including workplace relationships, processes, products and services. While the focus on achieving quality products and services is not new, it has shifted from being reactive - inspect and fix - to pro-active, plan to get it right the first time.  This course will equip frontline managers with the vital skills to ensure the quality and continuous improvement process is team-centred and team-driven and is aimed at all managers working at the frontline of an organisation, from supervisors and team leaders through to business unit and divisional managers.  This course covers the following:
