Every company has some degree of dysfunction. This course is designed to reduce dysfunction within manufacturing companies. Since its inception in 2010, the staff of the Academy of Business Training has worked with hundreds of manufacturing and MRO companies to improve their operations. Management of these companies experiences a myriad of problems with production and/or the MRO operation and assumes that’s what needs to be fixed. Therefore, many companies first exposure to us is our Production Planning, Scheduling, and Control course. What our instructors have learned in discussions held during class is most manufacturing and MRO companies are dysfunctional in that the various departments do not work as a team.

TRAINING FOR SENIOR MANAGERS

The Academy of Business Training is the leading U. S. provider of short term (1 – 5 days) college level manufacturing courses. We use the same textbooks, by well-known publishers like Cengage Learning and Pearson, as major colleges and universities. The most important difference between us and a college or university is ABT instructors have a minimum of 30 years business experience and have held a senior management position for at least 5 years in the course they are teaching. Most business school instructors come from an educational background and have very little on the job experience (remember the movie Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield).  When you take an ABT business training class you are learning from a business professional trained in facilitative learning....not educators with no experience. Just like you...they started on the line and worked their way up...so they speak your language and understand what you need to learn.
