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!

I think that the Lean Pull Expert training was very beneficial and it was well divided into a theoretical and practical part. I much appreciate the fact that the participants were from different production environments, so we had the opportunity to share very useful comments and opinions in discussions. The possibility to visit the plant of the organizing company was also great. The great proactive approach of the lecturer set the level of the training even higher.

I completed the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt online training by ICG and I must admit that I was very pleasantly surprised. The trainers had very well prepared all the training materials, simulation games and all the supporting applications that we used. The content was also well and clearly presented. I definitely recommend it.
Kristína Bacharová|Lean Manufacturing Engineer | Vertiv Slovakia
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, who readily shares the knowledge with attendees (even after the training). I can highly recommend.
Veronika Hermanová|Project Manager | KBC Group NV, Czech Branch
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.

Manager as coach will enable me to fully use the potential of the team and find an individual approach to its members.»

The training was done very professionally (great organization and facility). I value the integration of theoretical part of the training with the practical part, which took place at the production facility. Nothing beats real life application and practice. I would also like to praise the trainer, Pavel Skoda, who is able to perfectly explain the theory including various examples from his experience as well as take participants through the practical part of the training in the manufacturing setting. Overall I evaluate the training as excellent.
Pavel Hamberger|Process Engineer | Magna Cartech
Immediately during day one I concluded that this Green Belt training is at a completely different level than what we are used to. The whole course I was just interested in learning more information and above all to think about it and put it in context. Another great thing you managed to do is to run an online course that I didn’t even expect to happen, and certainly not at such a top level. “Top marks” from me. Personally, I was very impressed by the Zoom technology, which in my opinion simulated face-to-face meeting with 99% sufficiency.
Jiří Svoboda,| E.ON
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.
Lukáš Papala|Process manager | Alza CZ, a.s.
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.
Michal Kubica|Continuous Improvement Manager | Olympus Medical Products Czech
The training has fulfilled my expectations, the content and the form were sufficient. I recommend attending this type of training with lecturer Dáša.
Zuzana Nedavašková|Team leader | Innogy
I attended the Lean Value Stream Expert training by ICG which took place in JMA. The training completely fulfilled my expectations in terms of the practical use of the value stream mapping method. Knowledgeable lecturer was able to explain complex concepts and answers all participants’ questions. The training, in a real environment, is absolutely priceless! A week after the training in JMA, I successfully moderated a team in my company through a VSM process, mainly thanks to ICG.
Jiří Kalina| Cooper Standard
The professionalism of the training and the approach of the lecturers were absolutely breathtaking. The materials were well prepared and I am glad that I attended this training. The online version of the Green Belt training was great in my opinion.
Michal Zelenka|Integrated Management System Department | Metrostav a.s.
Based on the training you can set goals of project team and line subordinates quite well. I liked using emotion when defining goals.
Petr Tóth|Project office leader | J&T Banka
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.
Ivo Denemarek|Supply Chain Manager | Olympus Medical Products Czech
To cooperate with Mr. Hodulák is like seeing the truth! His approach to uncovering any shortcomings and unnecessary is direct and uncompromising. Training is all comprehensible and the management of the workshops is professional and effective. I appreciate his open approach, his willingness to still give us questions to help us open our eyes and find the right solutions. In a perfectly understandable way, we can give feedback when we look for excuses or justifications instead of solutions. After several years of cooperation, I would like to recommend the training to any company.
Martin Kořínek, Ph.D|General Manager | GRAMMER CZ
Great practical training, in which we mapped chosen process in company Assa Abloy, then we did value analysis of particular working spaces, on the basis of newly discovered facts we created VSM and VSD with suggested improvements. Training in real environment with practical examples that can be used in manufacturing company.
Jiří Goth|GPS Manager | Grammer CZ - Žatec
Thanks to the online form of the Green Belt course, I gained experience with very useful and powerful online platforms, which can be used by everyone who works in an international environment. The course itself was very well structured, with a clear explanation and plenty of space for discussion. The lecturers created a friendly atmosphere with their approach, thanks to which no one was ashamed to ask any questions. A great benefit is the subsequent coaching for the certification defense or project support.
Jan Pečenka|Junior Supply chain manager | Soufflet Agro
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.
