Haldan Consulting and the Nelson Mandela University have partnered to bring you the

Continuous Improvement Workshop Series 2020

This workshop series is hosted annually by the Nelson Mandela University’s Industrial Engineering Department on North Campus!

This Series includes 4 practical workshops that take place over 2 days, with an optional Factory Tour on day 3. Continuous improvement is an integral part of doing business – if an organization (of any type) chooses to continue with “business as usual” they will soon fall behind their competitors. The motor industry, led by Toyota, has shown the way with regards to continuous improvement – others have noted Toyota’s superior performance and have begun their own continuous improvement journey’s.  Popular methodologies for achieving this include Lean, Six Sigma and TPM.  Whichever route you choose, it is clear that some form of continuous improvement methodology has to be utilized in order to keep up with your competition!

The Continuous Improvement Workshop Series adds value to this by exposing delegates to a number of the CI tools – some old and some new.  The evolution and theory of four tools will be discussed and demonstrated in a practical way so that delegates can return to work and implement improvements using these tools.

Some of the following workshops topics include:
