“Survival, Growth and Excellence of the Fittest” is the latest saying.

With increasing global competition, it is becoming necessary for all manufacturing companies to optimize the use of their resources including human assets.

It is proved that the performance excellence can be achieved by undertaking internal projects. The best method to achieve this is to build an internal team and achieve sustainable development through enhanced in-house capability.

“Training and Mentoring” Is the new mantra which has become mandatory to make the internal team competent to take on challenges of the real world and lead the path to success.

Many companies are still lagging behind to understand the importance of above, or even if they understand, they have less priority for the investments in “Training & Mentoring”. This could be because of many factors including:

  • Lack of availability of trainers who have real life industry experience
  • Fear of Attrition of trained manpower
  • Lack of leadership to undertake internal projects
  • Lack of patience till tangible benefits are seen
  • Non sharing of best practices within the industry

However, the companies who have understood the priority and invested in such projects are making big progress in achieving excellence and these are companies which will not only survive in the global competition but also will grow and excel.
