Roman has introduced Six Sigma training to its staff development programme.
The company has committed to an extended two-year programme of training for its entire operational staff. This is to ensure its team is qualified to a minimum of NVQ in Business Improvement Techniques.
In parallel to this, and to ensure they oversee and drive continual improvement through the business, five of Roman’s senior managers are progressing through Six Sigma Lean training to at least green belt level, while its manufacturing and installation managers will go on to complete the black belt qualification.
The participants of the course must attend a full day of training every other week for six months. The training involves various workshops, presentations from the participants, and practical activities around the business. The participants review all aspects of Roman’s current manufacturing and administrative processes with the intent to making them more visible, effective, efficient and therefore, minimise waste and cost to maximise profits and performance.
During the course cross functional teams learn the language of Continuous Improvement, while applying the tools and techniques of Lean Manufacturing in team based projects over six months.
