Bosch develops scarce competencies

Lean training went into second year

Bosch develops scarce competencies

Budapest – The fourteen students of the Bosch Lean Academy, a collaborative pilot project of the University of Miskolc and Robert Bosch Energy and Body System Kft., have successfully got through their first year, andthe second year started up in the past few days’ time. Also closed partner in the work of the very practically-oriented lean management course is the Lean Enterprise Institute Hungary.

Dr. Frank-Stephan Kupfer, commercial plant manager of Robert Bosch Energy and Body Systems Kft. of Miskolc, said, “Our experience shows that students coming out of higher education have substantial academic knowledge but little practical work experience. Manufacturing companies like Bosch have a need for staff who quickly grasp the everyday working tasks and can cope with the practical challenges. They must also be able to apply lean methods to improve quality and productivity.”

During last year’s two semesters, seven Bosch mentors helped the students in their work. As well as learning lean techniques, the students develop skills that have shown up as constantly lackingin job interviews over the years. Such are problem-solving skills and methods, and the ability to work in a team. Other competences where applicants tend to be weak are presentation skills, self-reflection and project management experience. All of these are essential in the multicultural environment of a multinational company. The second year of the pilot project started up this September with 8 students, and there are plans for a standalone two-year dual lean master’s course to start up in the semester, in February 2016.
