<strong>Durham, N.C. &mdash; April 23</strong><br />TBM LeanSigma Institute partnered with Training Industry Inc. to release the results of a joint &ldquo;Training in Continuous Improvement&rdquo; survey that identified the critical role of leaders in the success of training to support business improvement initiatives.<br /> <br />The survey was conducted in February 2008 by 71 training leaders from the service (44 percent), manufacturing (21 percent) and other (35 percent) industry segments across a broad range of company sizes.<br /> <br />The greatest number of comments came from how leaders would redesign how their business provided training for continuous improvement (CI) initiatives. Respondents said leaders need to &ldquo;walk the walk,&rdquo; engage their executive team as key supporters and embed training in a company&rsquo;s culture to make any improvement initiative successful.<br /> <br />Other key findings include:<br /> <br /><ul><li>Senior management is more satisfied with progress when there&rsquo;s a broad scope to the training initiative.</li><li>The more involved the training function is with improvement initiatives, the more satisfied senior leaders are with the companies&rsquo; progress.</li></ul> <br />&ldquo;The study data suggests that the role of training to attain continuous improvement must be driven from the top down,&rdquo; said Anand Sharma, CEO of TBM Consulting. &ldquo;Lean companies have historically been better prepared to overcome business challenges, and these findings show business leaders must take the reins to drive training that supports the transformation.&rdquo; <br />
