STAR Day for team leaders

STAR Day for team leaders
Sharing in Growth productivity programme team leader training

Castle Precision has hosted a special STAR (Sharing Together Achieves Results) day for team leaders at its Glasgow plant.

Organised by Sharing in Growth business transformation coach Jim Houston, the event was designed to demonstrate the team leader’s role in running a lighthouse cell. For those studying through the Sharing in Growth Lighthouse Team Leader Academy, it was also an opportunity for team leaders, who had graduated, to share their experience, particularly in terms of the required standard of work-based evidence of skills and learning to enable graduation.

Said Jim: “Castle was the perfect location, having been on the SiG programme since Sept 2013. They are committed to the SiG improvement model and have just launched their third lighthouse area.

“The tour covered all the cells and lighthouses with local team leaders and operators presenting the story of their area. The lighthouse visual management standard clearly described their journey with storyboards and SQDCP metrics demonstrated how the work had positively impacted their key business metrics. The enduring theme was people in tune with the business challenges and being evidently motivated to deliver real improvement in their area.”

At the end of the visit, each participant discussed ideas they had seen and would like to implement in their workplaces.

The hosts were SiG Team Leader Academy graduates Billy Palmer and Michael McGowan, along Gary Lisco, Craig Wilson and Marc Fullerton, while the visitors were Jim Davis and Stuart Balsillie of G&H and Bruce Dryburgh of ATL.
