R&G has delivered more than 200 training sessions and trained around 2500 participants. 82% of the participants rate the training as good or excellent. In 90%+ of the cases, the training forms part of an overall Operational Excellence program where R&G is involved to deliver results together.

Our core belief is that training only generates value if the participants apply the methodologies to improvement projects. Applying what you learn stimulates the real learning. In order to makes this even more effective, we can customize the training to your needs in terms of content, duration and setup. Because R&G is typically involved in delivering results together and working on the projects with the training participants, learning is accelerated.

R&G provides training on two dimensions, both essential for delivering results. Methodologies to improve processes and Acceptance & Accountability training to influence desired results.

We offer open-enrollment schemes for the core of our training programs. Furthermore all of our programs can be provided through in-house training with a program tailored specifically for your company. Finally we offer train-the-trainer programs.
R&G Academy’s trainers have years of operational experience in applying these methods and tools in a variety of sectors, from financial services to manufacturing and at various levels from complex strategic planning to specific, functional projects.
