Hi! I am planning to do a project that would help reducing the time spent in training new joinees in an organisation. Any suggestions please?

Hi Pari, this infact is a very interesting topic to work on. I had mentored a similar project where we took the measurable parameter as the ‘ramp up period’ which was defined as ‘Number of days taken to reach a specified level of productivity’. The improvements focussed on the key skills to be delivered to the people to achieve the required productivity, getting the required access’ on time and structuring a team along with training material who would be responsible for the induction training. We achieved good results out of that project as the Ramp-up period was reduced from close to 3 months to 20 days.

Thanks Anand. I am also planning to work on something very similar. In my org also, we consider first three months as the induction period. Though there are no past records that can show the actual induction duration as it was never measured by anyone. So, I am bit confused on how to take it up.

I am a Six Sigma consultants working for some clients in India. one of the projects that we are helping our client with involves improving the effectiveness of training of inductees – specifically Graduate Engineers.We started with a modified QFD (Quality Function deployment) where the Whats were got through discussion with various department heads. The Hows were the present modules in the training. The cells gave the relationship between the Whats and Hows. Certain lacunae were identified in the present method of training. The teams are progressing from there.Hope this helps.Raj0
