The Productivity Initiatives in Services & Manufacturing (PRISM) represents a group of productivity-related programmes including seminars and training courses supported by WSG across both cross-sectoral and selected industry verticals.
The various programmes under PRISM are targeted primarily at managerial and supervisory-level staff to acquire know-how to help their companies become more productive via different tools (e.g. 6 sigma, lean management, TQM) and techniques (e.g. process reengineering, innovation, service strategies).
PRISM supports training in the form of seminars, master-classes and productivity training courses.
You can apply for course funding through the SkillsConnect system.
