Company - Wide Training Curriculum


DFT Training Workshops are designed for all organizations in the manufacturing company, from top management to all employees in manufacturing, engineering, planning, marketing, finance, accounting, facilities and employee relations.  DFT is in fact, a complete business strategy.  Our products allow companies to easily tailor training toward certain departments.
Workshops expand the DFT format Mr. Costanza had originally created for his 4-Day DFT Business Strategy public workshops (Over 84,000 graduates).  Digital workshops have expanded topics that could only be taught from the knowledge and experience of Mr. Costanza.  Like the original 4-Day Workshop, each digital session has a follow-up quiz and an introduction to your own "hands-on" DFT labs.
