Visit to Toyota Engine Plant, Deeside – in partnership with the Toyota Lean Manufacturing Centre
In order to embed the learning and tools the Team Leaders have received on the Sharing in Growth Lighthouse Team Leader Academy, we have partnered with Toyota at Deeside to deliver a unique tour of the site including an in-depth look at their standard procedures, visual management, PDCA processes and observing a daily management meeting. We have invited the team leaders on the academy along with their supervisors to experience a day in the life of a Toyota team leader and group leader.
The first groups attending in June were from Middlesex Aerospace, Sigmatex, Walker Precision Engineering, Produmax, Senior Aerospace Bird Bellows and Amphenol Invotec. More sessions will be held in July, Aug and September.
The Toyota visit provides an inspirational bridge between classroom training and the team leaders demonstrating how they have implemented their learning and receiving their accreditation.
