Got Scrap?
Try Competency Modeling
Successful manufacturers know that validating employees’ skills and knowledge can improve quality, cycle time, and safety—while reducing scrap and downtime. However, if you equate completing training with achieving competency, without setting performance standards, you will struggle to see results. The antidote is Competency Modeling, a method traditionally reserved for leadership that has become an essential part of workforce learning and development. Learn more about implementing Competency Modeling in your operations.
