FALCONI’s training program for Black Belts has become a global benchmark. The program taps the experience acquired in recent years by preparing over 4,200 technicians and developing thousands of projects during their coaching.
The programs further enhance companies’ ability to solve problems and achieve goals by increasing their ability to analyze, execute and verify action plans, and preserve their outcomes. Every stage of the managerial method incorporates the use of resources, e.g., Systems Engineering and Reliability, Statistics, Value Analysis, Management Tools etc.
The training program for Black Belts proposed by FALCONI has a workload of 150 hours spread over three weeks (one week every month).
Follow-up activities (technical assistance)
In addition to the theoretical lessons in the classroom, participants also receive guidance from FALCONI’s team to solve and fulfill two major problems of their company.
FALCONI’s technical assistance provides technical guidance to the projects, identifying flaws in the management of the program and ascertaining the candidates’ level of interest and motivation.
FALCONI’S technical assistance is a major feature of the Black Belts development program. It is provided by a team of consultants specialized in this type of monitoring and assures full support to prospective Black Belts.
