They are now very proactive in taking action to correct variances highlighted by control which have been implemented.

The production lines have seen a reduction in the standard time to produce the same volume of output and through the close follow up by the supervisors and line leaders, they are able to exceed their targets and achieve the goals which had been set.

The workshops were conducted for all levels of management. This laid the foundation for a common management approach throughout the organization.

With a multi-cultural management team of Indonesians, Indians, Austrians, and others learning together in the ACCESS Workshops, a strong sense of teamwork is developed based on mutual respect and a common purpose of collective success. We have a vision of our future and are confident of our ability realize that vision.

  • Provide Managers with the essential management fundamentals
  • Create and organization climate where Managers are continuously instilling the passion, energy. Enthusiasm and edge.
  • Turn Managers into potential Business Leaders.

All the objectives were met as promised and most important the enthusiastic and energy now been demonstrated by staff who successfully completed the program.

The program has also invigorated the staff interest in effective project management, creativity, responsibilities and accountability.

The managers and the first line supervision have improved the control of their operations and have now a much greater awareness of their performance. We are able to better plan our resources according to our needs. Variances to our plan are detected early, and the control systems have provided our people with the tools to take appropriate corrective action at the right time.

As a result of the behavioral training that has coincided with the installation of the management controls, we have noticed a positive change in both the supervisors and the line leaders behavior.

Efficiency and productivity are expected to scale up with the sound management fundamentals imparted by the IMPAC team.

Considering all the above, I would recommend this program to be evaluated by any executive that is aiming at improving the productivity of their organization in a sustainable way.
