KNOW Tooling Day 2014 signals the roll-out of Hager Group knowledge-sharing project

On 1st and 2nd July Hager Group tooling managers gathered in Obernai for the second KNOW Tooling Day – an intensive two day event aimed at creating a system of transferring and sharing knowledge and best practices within the group.

The event, which welcomed Hager Group tooling managers from Brazil, China, France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK, also signalled the successful launch of KNOW Tooling project (Knowledge Network Organisation Worldwide), an exciting project which aspires to develop our technical and organisational know-how through knowledge-transferring and sharing activities.

Participants were welcomed by senior managers, who underlined the need to recognise how vital knowledge sharing is to Hager Group’s competitiveness, now and in the future, and see action at local, national and international levels in order to leverage best practices and create uniform working standards throughout the group.

The first day included a visit to the injection and stamping tooling department, our internal Tooling School at our Obernai site as well as a series of team-building exercises. On day two, manager-participants took part in the ‘World Café’ – a creative activity that encouraged exchanges on five key tooling issues, which culminated in a series of innovative presentations on ways to improve international knowledge transfer and team working.

A big thank you to all members of the project team, in place since 2012, for their hard work and continued commitment to the project.
