"I used to just see a value stream map . . . you know, process equipment, physical
material, information flow. With humaneering, I also see people working
in that process
. . . the people
who create economic value."
- Operations improvement pro, diversified multi-national corporation
This is a professional development program for an organization's operations improvement pros in particular, plus aspiring operations managers and others responsible for improving the performance and productivity of operations that depend on people.
Participation in this program can qualify participants to staff Project Initiatives as interns, in effect reducing humaneering project costs while accelerating humaneering competency. Completion of the program with satisfactory exam scores will qualify participants for humaneering IP-licensure by the Humaneering Institute and free their organization from dependence on external humaneering professionals.
The program begins with a 12-day, on-site, Humaneering Institute accredited workshop (3 separate 4-day events). This workshop prepares a cohort of up to 10 individuals to staff Project Initiatives as in-house humaneering practitioner interns. The 3 separate 4-day workshop events can be scheduled in three successive weeks for expediency, or across 9 to 12 weeks for greater convenience.
Next, this service supports the required 640 hours (or 3 in-house projects) of supervised internship and prepares candidates to pass the Humaneering Institute's IP-license qualifying examination. Intern supervision involves continuous personalized instruction and guidance, as internship is necessarily a rigorous process so as to enable candidates to achieve humaneering competency and to assure passing grades in the licensure exam.
Optional - Because of the interest in humaneering that develops within organizations experimenting with humaneering, the first 4-day workshop event is designed to include other organization members for the first hour, first day, and entire event. Clients frequently invite operations executives to the first hour, operations managers and employee representatives to the first day, and people in support functions to the entire 4-day event. The remaining 4-day workshop events are experiential and not suited for participants not directly involved in humaneering applications.
Upon completion of this service and successful licensure of one or more practitioners, the Humaneering Institute will require that you retain DesignedWORK for 3 years of Application Coaching support. For the client, this service provides essential application assistance. For the Humaneering Institute, the service provides assurances of your effective application of humaneering and compliance with practitioner quality standards. This requirement is reduced substantially in 3 years upon license renewal.
One of our Humaneering Institute IP-licensed professionals will provide this service, supported by our humaneering specialists when helpful.
The Capability Initiative requires the intermittent presence of our licensed humaneering professional on site over an extended period of time (6 to 15 mo) to allow for workshop instruction, project leadership, and intern supervision. To this end, the following client support is very helpful:
