Breaking News North Pole requests lean training from Track Training

Track Training are very proud to announce that we have been approached by representatives of the man of the month, Chris Cringle, with a view to implementing lean training within the big man’s operations up North. After years of providing billions of toys per year, whilst receiving nothing more than milk and cookies in return, it has been decided that a more viable business strategy may be required for the long term survival of Christmas. Through a Value Stream Mapping exercise, Track Training has identified the following areas to pursue for eradication of waste within Santa’s operation;


1 – Making a list AND checking it twice – Inefficient

2 – The list of inventory required is still manual – If this isn’t changed to computerised, there’s the risk of this list being lost/destroyed (Poka Yoke)

3 – No back up reindeer – With so much of the operation undertaken in one night, should a reindeer get injured/ill, the whole operation would be in jeopardy. Back up reindeers required (FMEA)

4 – Huge inventory requirements – JIT system to be looked into


Santa was able to access some of the various funding streams for training Track Training has access to in order to put in place the lean training. Track Training is pleased to announce we will be implementing Kaizen projects to pursue eradication of the identified wastes in time for Xmas 2014.

New Partnership with Leeds City College

The Skills Support for the Workforce Project is led by Leeds City College in partnership with the Leeds City Region Skills Network and funded by the Skills Funding Agency and European Social Fund.  The project supports the development of a skilled and adaptable workforce in the Leeds City Region and Barnsley.  Group Business Development Manager, Viv Compton said "finding partners in the North of England is an important part of our strategy in order to support the employers we work with across the country who are all very keen to develop their staff but often only have very limited training budgets, if any.  This project will allow for a range of Continuous Improvement training to be undertaken in the workplace that will allow staff to achieve nationally recognised qualifications and companies to gain world-class manufacturing techniques at operative level through to senior level - so everyone benefits".
