Customized Training from SDSU Has Its Advantages

Customized TrainingJust think of the advantages when your company provides on-site, customized training.

These days, businesses, organizations and government agencies face new challenges. There are technological advances; new managers who need the right training; mergers and acquisitions that bring diverse corporate cultures together; downsizing that requires learning new skill sets and an information exchange that moves at the speed of light.

San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies offers customized corporate solutions and services that bring the expertise and resources of San Diego’s largest university directly to you. The College consults with you to translate your needs in to focused, effective programs and solutions that can be brought to your location – or wherever you choose.

On-site education is flexible, efficient, cost-effective and targeted to your organization’s goals.

Kevin Limbach, director of operations for TaylorMade Golf, said his company has greatly benefited from the customized training.

“TaylorMade’s partnership with SDSU’s College of Extended Studies has provided us with a very affordable Lean Enterprise training solution that is flexible and designed around our company’s culture and needs,” he said. “Our participation in the public program was good exposure to the tools and philosophy of Lean. The real power has come from bringing it in house and making it relevant to our business. We have seen improvements to processes across TaylorMade – in product development, supply chain, customer service, and the cash collection cycle.”

Anita Caro, HR Generalist II at Sharp HealthCare, concurs regarding the customized training.

“SDSU’s Essential Management and Leadership classes allow our leads, managers and those above, the ability to discuss and practice situational issues, validate good practices, build on current skills and learn new ones,” she said. “Growth is one of our organization’s Pillars of Excellence and SDSU’s program ties right into that. By having SDSU deliver management training at Sharp, it is convenient for our staff, we are able to customize the schedule to meet our needs, and Sharp employees know they are in class with co-workers who are having similar experiences in the health care setting.”

Program instructors are leaders in their fields, bringing expertise, insight and real-world knowledge directly to you. Every aspect of the programs can be tailored – from content and delivery formats, to location and meeting times – to best achieve your organization’s objectives.

Top-value programs include Lean Enterprise, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Management and Leadership, Workplace English, Business Writing, Project Management, and many more.
