All going really well with the training and we have had some real tangible outcomes. The training is informing our staff in best practice , we have some very interesting project work as an outcome with actual efficiencies across our business. Not only intangible but tangible also, we have some of our people looking at waste, usage of resources, storage of items only used occasionally and we have some amazing things happening.
Let me know when you want to catch up. I am sure Andrew can share some of the workshop material with you where our staff have investigated Value Stream Mapping and such like for our specific business. The training has been highly tailored for the needs of Hamilton Island and our logistics team are actually leading cultural change in our organisation.

I wanted to thank you for conducting the Kreative problem Solving course here on site at Harrison Manufacturing.
The opportunity to get staff from all areas of the business involved in the very important topic of problem solving was fantastic and we saw some great cross functional teamwork come out of it.
The way you presented the theory appealed to our staff, some of whom are not used to class room training and the use of multimedia added to keeping them all focused throughout the presentations.
During the group work over a dozen useful and realistic initiatives have been identified, some of which can be implemented straightaway.
This is not only going to save Harrison Manufacturing a lot of money, but it has also let to a general good feeling among our staff to be able to have a positive impact on the environment now and in the future.
Once again thank you for your time and effort!
