Micro, Small and Medium size companies generally suffer from lack of knowledge of basic productivity tools, weak technical capabilities, and limited access to external assistance. To improve product or service quality, most of them apply various improvement tools and techniques to achieve growth and generate better profits. This course will equip productivity practitioners with more advanced, emerging productivity techniques so that they can guide junior practitioners and at the same time upgrade the level of professional assistance they provide to organizations and industries.
The Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), is implementing a self-learning e-course starting May 1 up to September 30, 2016 (5 months), with the objective of providing basic understanding of advanced productivity tools and techniques to improve productivity. It will cover identification of problems and implementation of solutions for achieving organizational excellence, identification and utilization of appropriate tools and techniques leading to organizational excellence, and development of a framework and strategies for achieving excellence and competitiveness at the organizational level.
The structured self-learning e-course will be implemented through the APO’s dedicated e-learning website: http://www.apo-elearning.org/moodle19/. The participants can register on this website and create their own accounts. Ongoing registration starts at 10:00 am on May 1, 2016 (continuing registration).
As the National Productivity Organization, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) is in charge of the coordination and promotion of the program at the local level. In this regard, DAP invites the public to register and participate in this FREE learning opportunity.
Successful participants who passes the final exam will earn a Certificate courtesy of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO), and an opportunity to be invited to participate in a face-to-face training in any of the 18 APO member countries co-sponsored by the APO (subject to other qualification requirements and standards of the project).
