Training

We know how to close the gap, between what you should know and what you know.

We are convinced that the only way to improve productivity is to implement a cultural change in the company.

At Itemsa we conduct this transformation. We train the staff and align them with the lean management culture. We foster new values in order to expand the transforming inertia.

Itemsa's training is a transfer of know-how.

To share our experience and know-how and to help you change the old way of doing things, we, together with our team of experts, have created a new training model which enables companies that need to manage changes achieve the best results.

For us, "know-how" means that all employees (workers, managers, supporting functions, directors, ...) are perfectly trained as to how to do their job. Any other interpretation is uncompetitive.

Our goal is to empower your team with expertise.

Thanks to our training model which is based on know-how transfer, you and your team will improve continuously. Because we provide you with different types of training to transfer the fundamentals of competitiveness to your employees to apply them to your business.

Public Courses

The courses that we schedule in our training calendar, are face-to-face and/or through Webinars, and their programs are based on universal techniques or methodologies, which are applicable and valid for any type of company, sector and process. This permits them to be held publicly so that different types of profiles from any company can attend and also complement each other by learning how the same methodologies are applied in different companies and sectors.

In-Company Training

If your company has specific needs or if you can count on a sufficient number of students, we offer you tailor-made training.
In-Company training is always adapted to the needs of the company that commissions it and to the reality of the employees who will receive it. They are training programs based on the content of the courses we offer, but with the contents and duration adapted to the needs and specificities of each company.

In order to transfer the know-how and help change the corporate culture, it is necessary to carry out the training with personnel from the same company and, if possible, with real pilot implementations and practical cases from the company itself.

Every organization has its own culture. And each culture requires a specific type of training.

At Itemsa we offer tailor-made courses according to your company's needs. We understand that your team is an ecosystem that shares beliefs, values and practices. We believe that by designing customized training we can add productivity to your ecosystem and make it more agile and effective.

How are our trainings carried out?

Our training and courses are given in three formats: via face-to-face public courses held in our classrooms, at the company's facilities in the case of in-company training and, for both modalities described, via a live webinar with our trainers.

For many years we have provided training in our classrooms and at our customers' facilities and now we wanted to go a step further and offer online training via live webinar, which saves time and costs to the companies that hire it. In addition, there is also a mixed format in which part of the training is carried out in the company (in-company) and another in Itemsa or via webinar.

In the webinar training you will find written documentation in the form of guides and downloadable materials to make the path much easier for you. As it is done live, you and the rest of the students can interact, ask questions and have training very similar to the kind we normally do in our classrooms.
This is a way to learn and receive constant knowledge inputs and be able to apply everything you learn to your specific project.

What exactly do our training courses cover?

In our webinars, face-to-face and in-company training, you find all the information you need in a totally organized and concise way: philosophies and strategies, methodologies, techniques and tools.

Under the guidance of our experienced trainers and with guidelines and written documentation, you will be able to control each of the contents and be in touch with colleagues who, like you, want to be enriched with new points of view. This is a fundamental value that our training model provides: how the same approach can be adapted in its application to other companies whose characteristics have nothing to do with your own.

Remember that innovation always needs a fresh and different point of view and we must be part of the change in order to implement it as it deserves.

We micro-segment knowledge by providing customized value.
