One thing you can be sure of. The CTM Program Directors “have been there and they have done it before”. These professionals are true practitioners. They spend the vast majority of their time, and their careers, in the field and on the job, learning and perfecting their craft. For them, it is an ongoing task, and no matter what they develop for the classroom and books, they know it only works when it is put into practice.

Time-based change and continuous improvement have become an important part of many companies’ agenda. The problem faced by many of these companies is how to achieve, among the majority of their employees, a full understanding of the concepts, issues and effects of these major initiatives. This new Learning Cycles program from CTM is designed specifically to create a solid awareness and understanding of these broad, powerful concepts. “…having our people understand the importance, scope and techniques involved in time-based business strategies and the basics of organizational change allowed us to move forward at a greatly accelerated rate” (Andrew Reko, Director of Manufacturing, Ventmaster, Mississauga)

Many companies are finding the need for more than the standard workshop or seminar. They want the lessons learned in workshops directly relevant to their business and capable of being quickly embedded into pragmatic applications. The CTM Learning Cycles program is designed explicitly to meet this growing need. To learn more about the training material we have developed, check out the Industry Leader page.
The CTM overview and awareness program put everything into perspective.
The CTM overview and awareness program put everything into perspective. Until then we were doing a lot of changing that was not in context, or within an overall framework of thinking. When our team members became much more aware of how all the issues and parts were connected we were able to achieve a lot more, a lot faster. (Jim Braun, CTM Coordinator, Grote Industries Inc., Madison, Indiana). This is just one of the many success stories we hear.
