The Good Practice Network
In order to facilitate better communication between employees at our plants, and encourage a unified knowledge-sharing approach to common problems, we introduced the Good Practice Network. It was created in two stages:
The Good Practice Forum: Being responsible for continuous improvement, plant managers and industrial directors receive a weekly email containing good-practice information. They then assess whether it can be applied or modified, or feed back any new ideas that it inspires.
Good Practice Groups: Various groups were formed comprising people from plants with similar production technology. These groups meet in person at one of the relevant plants to discuss specific issues and opportunities and to share best practice techniques.
Prysmian Group’s Manufacturing Academy, based at our Mudanya plant, Turkey, is our benchmark for excellence and expertise in Operations and Manufacturing. The Academy offers three different programmes to our employees, according to their role and seniority: Manufacturing Fundamentals, Advanced Manufacturing, Excellence in Manufacturing, and specific training in Lean Six Sigma methodologies.
Lecturers comprise both global and local experts who share their knowledge and experience on different topics.
We need people who are able to think differently and follow their ideas, who have the power to dream and to change.
