The KIG Operations Department organized a two-day workshop entitled the “Improvement and Excellence Small Group Leaders’ Workshop” on the 2nd and 3rd of September 2013. The workshop aimed at qualifying shop supervisors and technicians to take the role of small group leaders. The attendees were introduced to the concepts of kaizen and lean manufacturing and were trained to apply several analytical and problem-solving techniques.
The workshop was attended by 19 shop supervisors and technicians from JLVM, JMSS, Jordan Amco, First Armour, Special Boots and IDD. The workshop was hosted by the First Armour Company in Dulail.
The workshop is part of a continuous improvement program that the KIG Operations Department has been pursuing in the KIG companies.
