Goodbye to another great year!

By Amy Edwards

It has been another fabulous year here at the Learning Centre!

Todd and myself would like to finish the 2014 year with a BIG thank all of our hosts this year who have opened up their facilities to us and other companies who participated in our public events.

Also a thank all of the participants who have attended public training events and those that have brought the facilitators into their facility for a private in-house session and/or coaching and mentoring.

We thought you should know about the 2014 fall public events being offered to all manufacturers in the Maritimes by our friends at Montana HR. If any of these are of interest to you, fire me off an email and we will be happy to introduce you to George Raine!

Thanks Todd

Applying 'Lean Thinking' to processes in the workplace is necessary to reduce waste which when translated into dollars can mean the difference of keeping your customers happy who are constantly squeezing you for price reductions. Lean saves time and makes work & your personal life so much easier. There are lots of examples of Continuous Improvement (CI) our members are doing that they don't label as CI or Lean - it is just common sense and I have seen hundreds of examples in my 14 years here at EMC. Call me if you ever want to chat about Lean / CI. But, please don't ask if you can come along with us to Tennis Canada. Thanks to Cori Hanna here at EMC for pushing me to do this blog.

EMC Learning Centre Year in Review

By Amy Edwards

Another great year has disappeared here at EMC’s Learning Centre and we would like to thank all of the participants that have attended public training events and those that have brought the facilitators into their facility for a private in-house session and/or consulting session. We would also like to thank our wonderful vendors for providing the top quality training and mentoring this year.

The hot topic for requests for Private In-house sessions has been our 2 day 'Lean Leadership'. Companies are recognizing they need to get the buy in from their key players if they are going to be successul in doing any Continuous Improvement. The other hot topic has been requests for customizing our 1 day 'Trust, Teamwork and High Performance'.

In an effort to enhance and better meet the training needs of our clients and members, Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) has started a process to identify such needs through this questionnaire.
This survey will provide us with your feedback on the current training offerings EMC provides and to identify needs, specific training requirements and preferred delivery methodology.

Putting the 'Management' in Attendance Management does pay off!
This is what I've heard from a number of EMC members that have participated in our EMC Attendance Management workshops I have been fortunate to facilitate since 2000.
