...FIFE Council used APM Introductory Certificate in Project Management e-Learning from ILX to implement a basic project management training course across the organisation that would not only further develop and improve employee skills but also increase productivity...
GKN OffHighway Division, a global supplier of equipment to the agricultural and construction industries, has increased business acumen among engineering and operations staff with an ILX financial competency e-learning solution.
GKN Offhighway has used the ILX 'Finance for Managers' suite of courses over the last year to help 100 senior managers increase their understanding of how decision making can impact business performance. The business acumen improvement programme was initiated by CEO, Martyn Vaughan.
Martyn Vaughn said:
The success of the ILX courses with senior managers has prompted GKN Offhighway to extend this programme to a further 200 staff throughout the Division. They will also use FACT, ILX Group's web-based, financial competency assessment tool, to identify individual knowledge gaps and target training in the most effective way.
The GKN Group has used a range of ILX financial e-learning products since the mid 1990s. Currently, GKN Aero in the US and the company's largest Division, GKN Driveline, have also launched financial competence improvement programmes.
