Safran employees go “back to school” for project lifecycle training
April 4, 2017
Safran University, a Group-level operation that enhances the management capabilities of employees worldwide, recently held a three-day project management training course in Walton, Kentucky – home to Safran Landing Systems, where carbon brakes are produced and refurbished for jetliners and military aircraft.
The training course provided the skills to effectively manage an entire project lifecycle, and brought together employees from a variety of backgrounds including engineering, operations, communications, maintenance, accounting and purchasing.
Conducted by Pankaj Kumar of Safran Consulting, the course involved sessions on theory, practical application with group exercises, along with a team-building exercise.
The course is designed for individuals who manage medium- or large-scale projects, covering the fundamentals of project management, offering insights into the different phases of a project from initiation to executing and closing.
Safran University’s goal is to connect Safran affiliates to a learning community for which training is linked to the Group’s business strategy. The team actively partners with Safran’s North and South American affiliates to identify and coordinate appropriate training solutions.
The North American operation of Safran University has over 200 programs in its course catalog, encompassing instructor-led, online and virtual classroom training. Industry-leading training professionals and consultants are contracted to design and deliver these programs.
