Industrial relations

Rapid skills development

Davis&Dean over many years have developed computer-based workplace simulations that take advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our learners are exposed to a virtual world within which they plan, execute and monitor and control case-study based work. The AI shortens the time between cause and effect, posing hundreds of scenarios requiring leadership, management and teamwork decision. The AI thereby compresses 6-months of integrated practical experience into two to three days.

Strategic planning

Davis&Dean has adopted Business Management by Portfolio (BMBP) as a business philosophy to ensure the successful implementation of strategic business plans. The philosophy is project based and ensures that everybody in the organisation works toward the achievement of the business strategic intent. The following steps ensures the execution:
- Analyse Market and Positioning Business Assessment (QMS – see below)
- Develop / refine strategy
- Detailed planning (including prioritisation aligned to strategic goals)
- Execution through BMBP (including business improvement plan)
- Measuring success

Training assessment

Aligned to the Davis&Dean Quality Management system a skills assessment informs the Work Skills Plan (WSP) which the forms an integral part of ensuring the organisations strategic intent is achieved. Achievement on the WSP is monitored monthly ensuring variances are integrated into the execution plan. The Annual Training Report is informed by monitoring and controlling the WSP.
