TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR VESSEL PLANNERS
A training program for your vessel planners
is a good starting point, as this would benefit
the organization in terms of building efficient
and optimized stowage plans. Training not only motivates the team but also improves productivity in the long run.
Merely developing the training program is not enough. Identifying goals, the resources and the teams' strengths/ weaknesses in planning is important. Resources that undergo training need to be evaluated properly in order for the training plan to be executed effectively.
After training when the resource is put in the hot seat, to create an efficient stowage plan, a feedback loop of areas of improvement can further strengthen the training and bring out the best in planning. Investing in your team has shown to improve productivity, minimize error, and boost staff morale.
If you are starting a training program for your vessel planners, talk to us. Our step-by-step
training process can help your organization in planning the training program:
IDENTIFY OBJECTIVES OF
- Why do you need to train the resources in stowage planning?
- Can you identify the weaknesses that you want to translate to strengths?
- What type of plans do you envisage?
- How can the planner productivity be improved?
- What type of skillset is required?
Create a stowage planning skill matrix and list each resource with scores between 1 to 10. Use this matrix to identify resources that fall below certain scores and the desired skillset.
FIND TRAINING RESOURCES
Our trainers have more than 20+ years of planning expertise and more than 5 years of training experience. By studying the matric that you prepare, our trainers understand and meet your training needs.
IDENTIFYING THE TRAINING OBJECTIVES
We will create a training schedule based on the defined objectives and the skillset matrix score prior to planning the training content, schedule and training methodology. The schedule should factor that the resource will be away from work during the training time.
Planners are inducted into the training
program. The company objective for the training is defined to planners, as well as what they will learn, how it will be conducted and how it will benefit them and the organization.
A post-datum evaluation of resources is important to understand how the training has improved the ability to create stowage plans. The training program as well as the level of the resources' understanding will be continuously evaluated throughout the program, and adjusted as necessary.
