    Hello,
    Could anyone recommend a training course in the UK for lean manufacturing and ideally within the following counties oxforshire/berkshire/wiltshire? I went through the egreen belt training with BMGonline but found the online training not quite ideal. A public course would be better.
    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance
    Jeremy

    Hi Jeremy – is the course for you only, or are you
    looking for something for your organisation? (e.g.
    for say around 8 people)?Davy T

    The course would be for me only at this stage. I would like a course that is more than just an overview, something for the practitioner based on practise and examples. A course that is well recognised as well.
    Your recommendations would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Jeremy

    Hello,
    You might want to first check “Small Piece” and if that does not
    meet your needs call Colm Doran http://palomaconsulting.com/Contact_Us.htm as one of his guys
    lives in your area. It has been a few years since I deployed Lean
    and Six SIgma in the UK – but if you’re stuck drop me a line and I’ll
    track down other sources for you.regards,Adam

    Thank you Adam for the information. Small Piece does offer some adequate courses.
    Palomaconsulting appear to be really expensive!
    Thanks again.

    Hello Jeremy,
    It all depends on what you need – there are 2 ways of looking at this – cost or investment.  The cheaper ones (cost focus) will get you training but the more expensive ones (investment view) will usually provide a better ROI.
    Regards,
    Adam

    Adam – it’s a normal perception – but one to be
    careful of….In general, I might agree – but cost is not always
    the best differentiator of quality.Davy T

    I agree – and I also know the pedigree, quality, support level  etc of most providers when making such a statement.  For example Paloma has a significant bredth and depth of successful deployment in multiple industries and countries.   I advise potential clients to be very wary of a providers credentials and more importantly their level of support.  A provider with a solid track record and bredth of deployment will be able to take a strategic and tactical approach of training and support whilst having a very cross functional approach which you need to be successful.  I’d say, to be open and honest that you need to look for a provider with at least 10 years of deployment expertise in multiple industries and departments.  It’s like picking a Doctor or Dentist – I’m not sure about you but I pick the best quality I can afford and it’s the same with the tools that I buy..
    Best regards,
    Adam

    Adam, what process do you use to pick the “best quality” doctor or dentist?

    Hey Les,
    Nice question :^) …
    Elements such as …
    – how long have they practiced (fresh out of school … to should have retired 20 years ago but still practices) 
    – is there any on-line feedback – positive or negative
    – are they  members of any other “bodies”
    – do others recommend them
    – are there references readily available
    – are they local/regional – or mobile (e.g modile for people that are not)


    OK – next person to add to the list :^)
