Very well prepared training, with optimal time for discussion. We have completed several ICG Capability courses with my colleagues already, and this training confirmed great experience of the trainer (Lenka Čápová), who readily shares the knowledge with attendees (even after the training). I can highly recommend.

From the division manager’s point of view, I appreciate the active and highly professional way of training for the entire duration of the training. Through his knowledge and presentation skills, Richard H. succeeded in drawing and engaging all participants in the workshop in the process of improvement. The high working pace that Richard has established since the very beginning of the course has helped keep the attention of all involved members up to a successful end. The feedback from the participants of the training is also very positive. It was very motivating to see how much work can be done in just 3 days. Increased productivity in the order of several tens of percent was the clear and measurable benefit of this workshop. In the future, I plan to continue with Mr. Hodulak.

Lots of useful information on project management. The exercises where we were talking about and applying the knowledge on a specific example suited me very well… it was perfectly prepared!

The training showed me several different and more practical ways to approach evaluation of my team’s work. And how to correctly convey the information back to them through feedback.

I’ve been working with ICG Capability (Richard Hodulák) for several years. I have attended several Workshops and follow-up Kaizen Events and I appreciate especially the professional and practical approach. The results have always exceeded my expectations. The work of the entire team has always been on a high level, and the progress has been absorbed by even less optimistic colleagues. I can only recommend cooperation with ICG Capability (Richard Hodulák). It is worthwhile.

Based on the training you can set goals of project team and line subordinates quite well. I liked using emotion when defining goals.

After more than two years of working with ICG-Capability, I have a great appreciation of the work of consultants – their expertise, the ability to put the theoretical interpretation into practice and the ability to adapt the style to different professions in our company – from operators to managers. From the beginning of our cooperation, I feel realy positive about the start of kaizen’s transformation – through a comprehensive concept of kaizen events, we managed to implement a One Piece flow line in the key area of production with the active involvement of not only THP staff but also operators in the workshop.

The training was highly professional. The topic was applied on real situations from practice, which enabled the participants to quickly understand the approach and the application. Both ICG-Capability lecturers were great – both in their professionality and presentation skills. I especially appreciate that they adjusted the content of the training according to the needs and questions of the participants.

We have been cooperating with ICG for more than two years. The primary aim of our cooperation was and still is to spread Kaizen culture in a non-violent way through education and workshops. To do this, we have mapped the value flow and defined Kaizen Events, which have always been targeted to a particular obstacle to the main goal of building the OPF line. Kaizen Events have been very carefully implemented, from planning, staffing, goal specification, use of techniques, consultants’ choice to final presentation of proposals, and feedback from participants and sponsors. Thanks to careful organization and implementation, we are able to spread Kaizen’s nonviolent culture in the company, with parallel benefits in the form of significant improvements in individual workplaces. I see cooperation with ICG as very successful one. We managed to transfer a large amount of know-how to internal staff, and ICG (after a year and a half) already works only in the form of an external consultancy and audit company now. The basis for successful cooperation with ICG is shared philosophy and approach to Kaizen.

I have been very pleased with the A3 / PDCA training both in content and in the form of training. It was already the second training I attended and it was clear from the beginning what the purpose of the training is and what is its content. I also enjoyed the very friendly and entertaining approach of the lecturer. I would like to attend further training.

The content of the course is very applicable in the practice. The course was very exciting. The form – right in the company, very effective and interesting. The lecturer had a lot of experience, the commentary is interesting and it keeps participants active.

TRIZ methodology training was a great benefit for the whole participating team. Given topic was presented by the lecturer in very structured and intelligible way, also supported by a series of team exercises, where we tried different tools in practice. The entire methodology has a much wider scope than we thought before the training and is applicable in many cases, for example as an excellent support of Six Sigma methodology. A great benefit was also presentation of a number of alternative tools (e.g. smart little people, X factor, etc.) that really bring a completely new look on innovations and area of development. As agreed upon by all participants of the training, for us this is really something new and as our foreign colleagues say, this is exactly what we mean when we say “thinking out of the boxes.”

I enjoyed the course very much and there’s nothing to complain about when it comes to its contents. Training that’s presented through real, practical examples is very entertaining. The trainer has amazing knowledge and experience. It was certainly enjoyable being trained by him.

I participated with my colleagues in TRIZ training conducted by Libor Čadek and organized by ICG-Capability company. We all agreed on that TRIZ is very interesting and beneficial method to solve problems. I particularly like the fact that it is not a theory that one can believe or not. It is based on experience and emerged from practical inventions and enhancements. The training was conducted using very pleasant and non-violent method of presentation with plenty of room for our questions and opinions. The crucial thing was that the block of presentation was always followed by exercise on an interesting topic in which we stretched, relaxed and above all we practised everything we have learnt, so we learnt to use the procedures plus we better remembered everything. Considering the method of conduction of the course, I particularly appreciated the approach of the trainer, he never deprecated any solution, to the contrary, he always briefed very peacefully on correct procedures when doing the exercises. In the course of my career I have attended several similar courses, so I have a comparison. Without hesitation I can highly recommend TRIZ course led by Libor Čadek, especially for technical professions it is excellent. Participants will greatly appreciate the friendly and humorous way of leading the course and also well prepared course materials.

The training was great. Many practical examples, realization within a factory. The possibility of mapping the proces which we went through physicaly. Richard is a very good lecturer with many experiences – a professional.

The innovation training walked us through the innovation process theoretically and also practically with lots of practical examples. On the basis of detailed training materials provided by the company ICG-Capability we can apply the process on our bank environment and specific products. During the training we have experienced a lot of fun but first of all, we came up with new ideas and innovations for our company, and all this under the guidance of an experienced lecturer Milan Gazdík.

The three-days training was very beneficial. I consider the linking of theoretical part with practical workshops as the biggest positive, as well as pleasant working atmosphere and professinal approach of the lecturer. I also appreciate well prepared study materials; thanks to those I can return to the theory anytime. I can recommend the training even to the beginners such as myself, as it is a training full of information. If I have an opportunity to attend some other ICG lecture in the future, I will gladly take it.

The course content completely met my expectations. I have been doing “project work” for more than two years as a project support assistant and the basics of such management were exactly what I was missing. I knew about 80% of the information from my own experience, but it makes me appreciate the new information even more. I believe that the training was very helpful also for participants who are not really involved in projects. I personally started using some of the methodology presented. I also appreciate the instructor’s approach. He obviously has rich experience in project management which I think is priceless in pursuance of the training. In the course, there were enough demonstrations and practical exercises which always work great. I have no improvement recommendations because I was extremely satisfied. It was one of the few trainings which gave me useful information for my practice.

The lecture fulfilled all my expectations. All topics were very well explained and demonstrated. I obtained many ideas for realization in our company. The lecturer was perfect. I will surely use the gained knowledge.

The first time I heard about Lean Six Sigma training was from my colleagues who took it before me. From the very first day I saw that it was by far the best training on process improvement I have ever attended. The whole methodology left a very positive impression on me because of its sophistication and versatility. It is very useful for my job on the whole, and I can utilize a lot of individual tools separately. I further benefitted from the course because it was also attended by participants from other companies with whom I was able to share various experiences.
