About 80 metropolitan railwaymen took part in the regional innovative training under the Project Management program for young employees of KTZ NC JSC. Similar trainings throughout the month will cover all regions of the country. During the trainings, the youth of KTZ offers ideas, the best of which will be introduced into the activities of the Company.

According to the results of trainings in each region, three winning teams will be selected, presenting the best and most relevant projects. The winners will have the opportunity to declare themselves at the KTZ republican youth forum in the capital. Thus, about 600 projects from 16 teams will be presented to the jury at the Forum. Best ideas will be brought to life.

The training program includes the use of such methods and tools as design thinking, focusing, silent brainstorming, prototyping and testing, said Aizhan Seyitbaeva, Human resources Management Department of KTZ NC JSC.

The invited trainers work with KTZ youth for the first time and note the high involvement of the Company’s employees in solving the tasks.

The training is built through an innovative methodology called Design Thinking – when we focus on the final consumer, the client, when developing a project. For example, guys offer ideas for improving the comfort of passengers on a trip or optimizing reporting, eliminating red tape and others, said trainer Dmitry Dmitriyev. Our main task is to help young, ambitious, vibrant KTZ employees from completely different departments and structural divisions draw up their idea together.

According to the trainer, young railway workers proposed many worthwhile ideas that could bring an increase in the company’s operational efficiency.

Our idea is to organize a children’s playroom on the basis of the restaurant car for the convenience of passengers traveling with children. Training inspired me, gave confidence. Thanks to the Company for such attention to youth, said the participant of the training, manager of the Directorate for the implementation of large projects of KTZ NC JSC Aliya Baspakova.
