announcement - january 2012

Early last summer, the Lean Business Excellence - Malta 2011 programme was launched at the Radisson Hotel.
This took place on the 21st June 2011 through an opening conference targeting top executives from various industry and business sectors. This successful conference launched a programme of 17 different 1, 2 and 3 day training workshops that were planned throughout the summer and autumn months.
These highly interactive training workshops were hosted at Malta Enterprise that sponsored the venue for all workshop activities. The last of these events was held on the 11th November 2011 and brought about the conclusion for last year’s programme.

Dr Carlo Scodanibbio and Ing Joseph Micallef, independent consultants and facilitators/organisers of this programme say that the need for Lean Management concepts and principles adopted within any type of business sector can really make the difference in operational efficiency and effectiveness. The great need for Lean concepts to be adopted within business environments was obvious, and noted by the facilitators themselves when visiting clients on their various assignments, and through similar training workshop events held in previous years. Their decision to do something about this and go ahead with such an ambitious project resulted in the organisation of last year’s programme of events. This was the first Lean programme of this scale ever to be launched on the islands to date.

The Lean Business Excellence - Malta 2011 programme (details onwww.scodanibbio.com/malta2011/) was a success, with multiple day workshops attended by more than 28 different entities coming from both the manufacturing and services sectors, both private and public enterprises. The need for Lean principles to be adopted was further reinforced through the feedback obtained by the organisers from these participating organisations at last year’s events.

As a matter of fact, Dr Scodanibbio and Ing Micallef have ready plans for another set of activities to be organised in Malta during 2012. Expressions of interest are invited from all business sectors, public or private, who are interested in participating in this year’s events. These expression of interest are welcome through the fill-outform below. The organisers shall consider all suggestions brought forward, whilst they are also available for facilitating in-house pilot projects to demonstrate the benefits of lean and quality improvement programmes.
