Dear Ritu,

Whether you are from the manufacturing industry or otherwise, you need to identify costs relevant to the business. Any training that does not reduce the costs is a waste of time and money for your company. Therefore, take a call judiciously before conducting the training. If you implement my suggestion on cost-centric training then possibly you may be able to provide the evidence of the cost reduction because of training. The evidence will lend credibility to you as a person and for the HR profession as a whole.

Following costs are important for your business:

a) Inventory Carrying Cost of the Raw Materials

b) Work in Progress (WIP) Inventory Costs

c) Inventory Carrying Cost of Finished Goods

d) Capital costs to run the operations

e) Capacity costs

f) Maintenance costs

g) Cost of Quality (CoQ)

h) Cost of Poor Quality (CoPQ)

Measure the costs before and after the training. To begin with, ensure that the above costs are measured accurately or scientifically. If these costs are measured at all then the first training would be on how to measure these costs scientifically.

I have given the above comments based on my experience of conducting the training programmes in the field of "Supply Chain Management". Feel free to contact me, if you wish to organise the training programmes in this vertical.
