“CQM Training & Consultancy’s unique approach to embedding culture change across the sites has been truly effective.

Delivering a Tailor Made Solution

The group wanted to explore the potential to rationalise costs through the delivery of sustainable process improvements, whilst also embedding CI behaviours across the sites. Simultaneously, a programme to develop leadership and management capabilities was introduced in response to a key objective set by the group to increase service quality. CQM Training & Consultancy were able to provide the teams within the group with the skills to effectively manage, identify and resolve ongoing issues that had created inefficiencies and waste.

Data was gathered to validate the relevance of each project. The teams were then tasked with implementing the subsequent solutions, ensuring that Management and CI skills became an embedded and ongoing part of their daily working lives.

“Being able to work proactively and efficiently as part of a team with clearly defined roles has been key to our learning.”
