Grass roots training program

A Japanese government development agency engaged KBC to develop a training program for a new grass roots facility, including associated project timelines and a high-level budgetary estimate. Advice was required on how to approach opening a new facility from scratch, including training and organizational design.

The challenge

The framework had to consider diverse local populations with varying degrees of education and English language skills.


KBC defined a training and development timeline and provided a 50% commercial estimate for the development and delivery of the training required. The framework included approaches for establishing a human resources department, recruiting staff and providing training for:

  • New hires
  • Operations, technical and maintenance staff
  • Managers
  • Support function personnel such as safety and security staff

The results

The client was fully satisfied with the training program framework, rating it 4 on a scale of 1 (poor) to 4 (excellent) in their feedback response.
