INTRODUCTION

Over the past 2 decades and more, thousands of executives from different functions and levels have gained from from our hands-on Workshops. We are much beholden to the hundreds of our enterprises for patronising us- by sponsoring their executives to our workshops and thereby, sustaining our passion to contribute to their value addition.

Initially CRaVE started with the 2 thrust areas, Cost Reduction and Value Engineering. Soon, we were creating a process for acheiving organisational performance improvements. Other thrust areas, such as Time Management and Front-lineSupervision, were gainfully added on. With new workshops in the 1990's - such as GROW: Get Rid Of Waste and Towards World Class: Productivity, Quality & Cycle Time - we are currently 'craving' for holistic Operational Excellence !

To commemorate our Silver Jubilee Year, we are happy to float a five one-dayer series of our best workshops, which we reckon to be of the greatest value to our organizations for thriving in the 21st Century.

METHODOLOGY

This Workshop will be primarily practice-oriented, interactive and focused one meeting the participants felt needs.
