Why the program appeared

Our experience of cooperation with hundreds of companies in Ukraine gives us grounds to assert that there is an enormous demand for qualitative expertise in the field of building world-class production systems. Companies are looking for and sorting out the bits of knowledge that will enable them to compete with industry leaders around the world. And although this knowledge is there, but they are scattered and little available. Even the largest leaders of Ukrainian business experience a lack of knowledge. This program will become a real platform for the training of directors of the highest qualification. We will carefully select the best practices in Ukrainian and European companies and create the opportunity not only to get acquainted with them, but to carry out the most real projects together with the best specialists.

What is operational improvement?

We define management as the result of interaction of three key components in any company: personnel, processes and organization of communications.

Operational improvement is the ability to improve the performance of these elements qualitatively.

Accordingly, each course will focus on one of the three components or their interaction.

In this program, we tried to collect the knowledge that the leaders of operational improvements need.

And nothing more!
