Masters’ Academy – A Unique Programme Integrating Professional Development of Foremen, Team Leaders and Managers

For Whom?

Why?

Production companies need creative foremen and leaders able to work well with others during continuous organizational and technological changes. Expertise in production economics and control of production indicators is a prerequisite for their independence.  The ability to motivate people and to flexibly organize collaboration between people is also of fundamental importance for them.
 We are experienced in developing respective attitudes and competences needed by industrial enterprises.
Managers from industrial companies are the best sources of expertise in production, production economics and production indicators. Therefore we engage them to share their knowledge with foremen and team leaders. While Pro Motio trainers focus on the development of soft skills.
Training contents can be implemented effectively only through intensive collaboration with the superiors of foremen and team leaders.  Involving them in Academy activities noticeably improves collaboration among all those involved in production management and facilitates initial testing of newly acquired knowledge by Academy participants in real life.

Each time training modules comprise an intensive workshop conducted by Pro Motio trainers working together with Professors – managers selected by the Customer that orders training. In the period between subsequent training blocks, Academy participants do special homework subject to verification by internal Coaches prepared to and assigned this role.

For Whom?

For individuals who train directly how to operate machines and equipment, and also how to perform manual operations during production.

Why?

Few foremen, team leaders and operators are born enthusiastic teachers. Sharing of good practices, own experiences and skills is often done unwillingly and perceived as a tough and unrewarding activity. In order to facilitate it, organizations prepare in-depth job instructions – nevertheless, a direct demonstration of machine operation and training performed by an experienced operator on how to operate the machine is an indispensable form of teaching.  It enables faster induction into new duties and avoidance of potential errors in operation, provides support, as well as makes people more sensitive to all aspects connected with occupational safety. For industrial enterprises that have set a multiple-machine operator system as their goal, good on the job training is pivotal for reaching the level at which the majority of staff are able to operate in several work stations efficiently and safely.
