Scientific Management Techniques (SMT), the global leader in Hands-On Industrial Skills Assessment and Skills Training has joined Leadergen’s “Trade Winz” network to increase their presence in Africa.

"Harvard Business School predicts that East Africa will be one of the fastest growing economies in 2012,” states Marilyn Comrie, CEO and Founder of Leadergen. “Our unique Trade Winz service connects exporters in developed economies to major buyers in this sizeable market. Scientific Management Techniques has an exemplary track-record in delivering Demand-Driven technical vocational education training programs and industrial skills assessment programs which dramatically increase performance and productivity. Their industry-driven approach is in huge demand in East Africa, especially in the oil & gas and manufacturing sectors, where there is an acute shortage of skilled labour. Through Trade Winz, Scientific Management Techniques will be delivering their industrial skills training and skill assessment solutions for key employers in both Kenya and Rwanda."

Mr. Richard Whouley, Chairman of SMT, comments on the new collaboration: “we have enjoyed a presence in Africa since 1995. This relationship with Leadergen will leverage our proven success in this market and position us for significant growth as we help organizations solve the industrial skills shortage and improve productivity. Our success in international markets helped us achieve record growth in 2011 and we hope to build on this momentum in 2012 and beyond. Manufacturing organizations continue to be negatively impacted by the industrial skills shortage and skills gap. Forty years of data and validation prove that identifying skills, competency, and trainability prior to hire is the single most effective means to insure a quality hire and drive productivity in industry.”
