Last fall, I (JC) enrolled in Villanova’s Lean Six Sigma manufacturing certification program. I wanted to learn how companies like GE and Toyota (among others) had been able to create a company culture that could operate at such a high level of production efficiency. More importantly, I was curious if these same concepts would apply to the niche artisan textile industry I was involved in. The course was packed with great content, and at the end of the first 12-week course, I knew these concepts could greatly benefit our niche artisan textile industry. In fact, after I got done with the second 12-week course I realized that I had to stop, roll up my sleeves, and spend time applying all that I had learned before I took the final 12-week course to get my black belt certification.
So starting in January we headed out to visit as many mills as possible in an effort to build better relationships, practice what I had been learning, and study my industry’s needs. The past seven months of research and development have produced the framework for a pilot training program, that will provide mills with an amazing learning opportunity to advance their business.
The program is called Tenfold. We want to partner with ten mills this fall and give them a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a concentrated effort to continue to inspire the level of artistry and craftsmanship in our industry to new heights!
This inaugural, value-packed program is designed to give ten mills everything they need to create a solid foundation that will last for generations to come. We will come alongside and teach them how to design and create high-quality products more effectively and efficiently, learn new insights into their customer base and deploy world-class customer service tools to serve them well, plus provide them with a brand that will be sure to get their customer’s full attention and represent them well. This type of opportunity has never before been offered in our industry, and you could be one of the first ones to benefit from it.
