Knowledge about Feed Safety Management is a key point for the future of the feed business internationally. This was emphasized during the international GMP+ 25 years anniversary conference in Amsterdam, November 2017.
At this moment, the transfer of knowledge takes place by giving access to information and incidentally trainings are being offered, for example via the GMP+ Academy. However, for several reasons it is time to start a new way of knowledge transfer:
Knowledge transfer needs to become more integrated, structured and pro-actively planned than it has been before. Therefore, we decided to investigate the market needs and restructure the GMP+ Academy. Program manager for this development is Hans Lodders, who specialized in setting up new organizations with a focus on Talent Development and Knowledge Sharing. Together with Ilse van Dijk, a Learning & Development professional, they are the key-members of the team.
Right now, we are in the phase of investigating the needs of (potential) customers. We do this by interviewing several stakeholders such as consultants and companies. The next one and a half year will be used to structure the academy using a lean start up model. This also means early next year we will launch a pilot e-learning, using participants experiences to optimize the training offer. We will keep you informed.
