Interactive Online World Class Manufacturing Training in November 2020

Due to the current sanitary situation, the EU-Japan Centre for industrial Cooperation will organise an interactive and real-time online version of its World Class Manufacturing Training 2020.
20 European companies have been selected to attend this first virtual edition of this famous programme that started in 1992.
The 46th WCM edition will take place from Monday 16 to Friday 20 November 2020.

Some words from WCM 2019 participants
"I found the WCM Mission to Japan excellent. It far exceeded what I was hoping for. All lectures were very interesting and to the point. It was great to be able to take the learnings from the lectures and then physically go to factories and see these lean tools used very successfully on a day-to-day basis. It shows that they do work, but you need buy-in from everyone in the company. To put it all into context, it was great to learn about and experience the Japanese culture first-hand.
One of the main things I will be taking back to my company is lean leadership. How important it is to set an example. Go walk the floor. Go see the issues. How important feedback and suggestions from the operator is. "No Blame - No Shame"
By Donal Galligan, Operations Manager at Takumi Precision Engineering.

"The acquired knowledge will help me to continue implementation of various Lean tools in the organisation I work for. One of the most important learnings for me was about setting proper and motivating environment in order to motivate people (e.g. pulling the rope instead of pushing it). Company visits were a very useful part of the mission as well. It is always great to see how different companies are coping with their challenges. Another great part of the mission was a chance to participate in the  Standard Work /Kaizen Hands-on training."
By Girts Putnins, Group Fleet Manager at Ramirent Baltic AS.
