Benefits of Coaching and Mentoring
In addition to providing custom reliability education, FMS Reliability offers experienced coaching and mentoring to individuals and teams. Coaching and mentoring can increase the effectiveness of training by reinforcing the lessons learned as students look to apply their newly gained knowledge. Coaching is also useful for specific professional development needs, such as dealing more effectively with vendors and design teams.
Coaching can have a positive impact on your organization’s overall reliability program by helping management gain tools that enable them to calculate the value of reliability to the organization. Coaching can also help your company build a corporate culture that embraces reliability.
Implementing a reliability program within an organization or with a product design team has a myriad of choices. Building a plan, considering the most valuable next steps, and improving product reliability all at the same time can overwhelm even the best teams. Working with a experienced reliability professional as a coach provides a cost effective way to both get results and learn the finer points of reliability engineering and management.

How we work with you
A common scenario is to meet and discuss the objectives of your reliability improvement initiative. Also to conduct a reliability assessment to determine your organizations capabilities and current practices. The visit also provides a chance to meet directly with the individuals that will receive the coaching (an individual or small team that are implementing the reliability program improvement).
We like to arrange for regular weekly one hour teleconference to discuss current status, next steps and to provide training and guidance. These meetings are discussions that steadily work to build confidence in the team and step towards achieving improved reliability with your products.
- We listen to you and ask questions.
- We review and comment on current and planned activities.
- We encourage taking steps to build your knowledge and program.
- We advise on best practices for you as a professional and for your reliability program.
- We have experience and are willing to share that with you in the program.
You have a few options how to work with us. The three tiers are separated by communication method and scope.
Tier 1 Basic
|Email communication about one product development project or one production line.
Tier 2 Advanced
|Email and weekly 1 hour teleconference about one product development project or one production line.
Tier 3 Strategic
|Email and weekly 2 hours of teleconference including up to five projects or production lines.
A site visit and program assessment is optional yet highly recommended for the Strategic option. If you want to make significant changes across your organization, enabling us to know your organizations goals, strengths, and weaknesses, permits us to focus and guide you and your team efficiently.
We can setup the coaching program to last any duration, and have found that 6 months is long enough to make significant improvement. Of course this is flexible and may work to map along with your product development cycle or business cycle.
