As your training partner, we will work with you to:
We'll work with you to define your target audience— their needs, requirements, and constraints aligned with your desired business outcomes. We'll identify learning objectives and measures of success according to both internal and external key performance indicators (KPIs) and organizational needs. This analysis gives us the necessary detail to tailor training specifically for your needs, which encourages higher knowledge retention rates and gets your people up to speed more quickly. We develop your training and courseware solutions beyond what the average training and development companies can deliver.
We'll create examples, artifacts, and activities unique to your organization's systems, products, and processes and infuse that into our proven training curriculum. We'll provide trainer notes and guidance materials, and translate and localize the technical content in order to support uniform delivery no matter where in the world the training is delivered.
We'll determine which training delivery methods best suit your specific requirements. We'll calibrate our trainers (or your trainers) through a train-the-trainer (T3) model to ensure consistent delivery regardless of who delivers the program or where. Through collaboration we'll deploy a consistent, and sustainable training solution that achieves real performance improvement.

What makes Plexus unique?
Plexus’s approach to curriculum design and development is driven by our Learning Model, emphasizing learning through application of concepts in a real-world scenario, as opposed to the old standard classroom model of “lecture-learning”. Our process begins by working closely with relevant stakeholders including industry associations, oversight bodies, writing team members, and other key subject matter experts to identify underlying business processes and overarching business objectives. This allows us to take an in-depth, and practical view of the problem, and identify opportunities to maximize the value of the services we provide by linking the body of knowledge with specific learning objectives, and connecting those objectives with their respective job functions.
Our team has extensive experience developing and delivering world-class, workshop-based training and professional development solutions. This combined with our global partner network allows us to localize and rapidly deploy and support solutions on an international, multilingual basis. Plexus currently has Global Partners located in 13 countries, covering all major engineering and manufacturing regions.
The quality of Plexus training is recognized globally and best exemplified by ongoing partnerships with international oversight bodies including the International Automotive Oversight Bureau (IAOB) and the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), industry associations including the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and the global supply chain at large.
