Train-the-Trainer is intended for companies who want to bring The Manufacturing Game® into their facilities and use their own personnel to facilitate workshops. This is a good alternative for middle to large size companies that intend to have the majority of their employees participate in a TMG workshop. It is also a good option for sites that require considerable travel by Manufacturing Game facilitators to reach them.

How It Works

The Train-the-Trainer sessions are held on an in-house basis for 3 to 6 people at a time. Each person being trained must participate in a 2 day TMG workshop prior to the five day facilitator training course. All training material required to become a facilitator is included in this course. Participants will learn the moves in the game, the lessons behind the simulation, various strategies and their results and how to empower people to take action to eliminate defects and make a sustainable organizational change.

After the five day training class the participants will conduct a two day Manufacturing Game workshop at their own site in order to become certified. Once certified each facilitator will be in a position to conduct workshops using The Manufacturing Game® material with other certified facilitators at their site.
