QBIC has successfully concluded the first wave of its newly formed Lean Manufacturing Programme (LMP) at an event held at the Four Seasons Doha.
The programme, which is the first of its kind in the country, has seen several promising industrial startups and rapidly growing manufacturing companies take part in practical workshops and developmental sessions.
The LMP is designed to build the capacity of companies and startups that are currently manufacturing or aiming to manufacture products and goods in Qatar. Participants in the LMP are trained to develop their ideas alongside invaluable insights provided by international experts and partners, as QBIC continues to deliver world-class content that is relevant to the local market.
Within this programme, entrepreneurs and business owners gained a thorough, hands-on understanding of the holistic manufacturing process through a series of practical sessions that are based on the lean methodology.
Graduates of the LMP can now transfer their knowledge and skills to empower individuals currently within the industrial and manufacturing sector, as they pave the way to leading change within the sector in Qatar.
Programme graduates leave with the skills and knowledge to efficiently scale their operations and grow into the next stage of the production cycle.
QBIC general manager Hamad Dashin al-Qahtani said, “QBIC is keen to position itself as an incubator that is able to provide unique talent with the tailored programmes and support required to achieve maximum potential in their desired industry. QBIC’s ambition and long-term vision is that the Qatari industrial sector can be enhanced and elevated through the Lean Manufacturing Programme.”
He said, “I would like to express my pride and sincere congratulations to the first wave participants of the LMP for their solid effort and commitment throughout the past 5 weeks.”
