This very well proven training is our ‘best-seller’, i.e. our most often requested and provided training. It is performed as a symbiosis of training and workshop, in which solutions for typical topics of process improvement and Automotive SPICE® are discussed and developed.

You will become familiar with the Automotive SPICE™ v3.1 process assessment model, which is the leading standard for process assessments in the automotive industry. We show what motivates and achieves companies when they introduce Automotive SPICE®.
Furthermore, you will understand how to argue and act in order to support process compliance and to foster Automotive SPICE® implementation.

You will learn about the preconditions and required infrastructure of systemic process improvements. Finally, you will manage to avoid typical pitfalls in process improvement, and you will manage to drive the culture change and process change in daily work.
We look forward to your feedback and at the end we will issue a training certificate.
