Templates for Continuous Process Improvement


Training Matrix

Skills Matrix template to answer the question: Can I take a vacation?
Does anyone have the cross-training to do my job so I can take a break?

This versatile Matrix template is the Swiss Army knife of your Lean toolkit.

It is most commonly used as a Training & Skills Matrix — to define and measure the skills & training that your people have vs. the skills & training they need.

Which often quickly morphs into a Cross Training Matrix — to ensure that at least someone has at least the minimal skills & training needed to allow each team member the opportunity to take a week off every now and again.

And it can also be used as a Hiring Skills Matrix to compare the strengths and weaknesses of job candidates.

all those other tools
