A blog reader recently asked this quick question about training…
When I develop my training plan, who should be included?
You should try to get everyone on the production floor involved in your training initiative.
Aside from processing, quality, and tooling… you may also want to include other departments such as sales or engineering.
I often like to relay a story about one company who nearly had a mutiny by the design engineering department because they were excluded from the advanced process training.
Basically, don’t be afraid to ask around… we have many companies who thought people wanted to be excluded; only to find out everyone was hoping to take some of the training.
We always recommend you give your employees access to training. We figure the worst thing that can happen is they could learn something… which is really not a bad thing.
