Fostering Employee Contribution

Assist the UAW-Ford National Programs Center and the UAW-Ford National Joint Committee on Health and Safety design and develop a performance-based training solution for a new UAW-Ford Ergonomics Surveillance Tool.  This surveillance tool identifies and prioritizes high-risk jobs. The target audience for the tool and training were members of the Local Ergonomics Committees within the manufacturing facilities of Ford Motor Company and a Tier 1 Supplier.  This project needed to integrate multidiscipline and diverging team members as well as individuals from various universities who developed the surveillance tool (they were the subject matter experts).

BEI facilitated a kick off meeting with all involved team members and subject matter experts (SMEs) to achieve a shared understanding of the project goals, information sources, performance targets, schedule, constraints, and other important factors that influenced how the project would be conducted. SMEs were made part of the design team to foster a strong partnership to ensure that to-date investment could be leveraged down to the plant floor. Next, a Front-End Analysis was conducted to provide a clear picture of the skill and knowledge required for successful job performance, to profile target audience knowledge and skills, and to identify instructional strategies and delivery methods. 

BEI then created a learning system that included a two-day workshop focused on hands-on application, case study examples to illustrate key content, job aids to ensure consistent and reliable application on the plant floor, and videos representing the manufacturing entities for structured activities as well as instruction (these were embedded into the training materials).  Deliverables also included an Instructorís Guide, a Participantís Guide, presentation materials for a UAW-Ford Ergonomics Conference, and a Pilot.

Flextronics International needed relevant and timely courses designed and delivered at a global three-day conference for human resource managers.

BEI designed and developed four half-day action learning courses that focused on :

  • Project Management
  • Change Management
  • Facilitation
  • Performance Consulting

A total of 16 concurrent courses were scheduled to be delivered during the three-day conference. Course workbooks and relevant job aids were created for each subject matter to facilitate learning and to ensure transfer to the work place.
