Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC) recently launched the second wave of their Lean Manufacturing Program (LMP) for local entrepreneurs with the interest to learn more about the best practices in manufacturing and the ambition to set-up their own production facility. It follows hot on the heels of the successful first wave of the LMP, the first of its kind in the country.
The local entrepreneurs will be on a journey to discover the most important aspects of setting up and operating a manufacturing facility over the course of six weeks. The program is in line with the ‘lean methodology’ and begins with an introduction to the relevant rules and regulations in the State of Qatar and eventually ends with the fundamentals of end-to-end supply chain management.
The modules of the program include without limitation or restriction the subjects of customer validation, product prototyping, marketing and sales strategy, factory design and machinery mapping and will be delivered virtually during weekly trainings.
The local entrepreneurs will develop their ideas with insights from national and international experts and specialists. The top-performing local entrepreneurs will present their businesses and projects to a committee for a chance to get an industrial facility, continuous training, office space and other development opportunities and possibilities at the end of the program.
It is the aim and intention to promote and support the local entrepreneurship and to contribute to the advancement of the manufacturing sector in the state of Qatar.
