Maintenance Management Skills

Maintenance Management Skills teaches supervisors how to lead a world-class maintenance department using planning and scheduling best practices to drive work execution, and motivational and time-management techniques to improve maintenance worker productivity. The result is improved staff motivation, lower employee turnover, increased output and reduced waste of resources.

Participants will build an action plan for managing their human capital while developing an effective program for managing assets. Supervisors will learn how to leverage their personal supervisory style, apply time management techniques, run effective meetings and improve maintenance delivery. Explore how to make the transition from a technician to a supervisor and investigate common supervisory staffing issues like supervising friends, orienting new employees and delegating responsibility when necessary

The course uses case studies, group discussion, reflection activities and exercises to help you apply what you learn to your work situation.
