We look for young maintenance professionals with at least an academic Bachelor’s degree in any technical subject, who have recently started their maintenance career and may have attended the WCM Summer School.
Each participant has to be working on at least one innovation project within their own maintenance organization, which they bring into the program. To get the most out of the program, the participants must be open to coaching – both from the providing and receiving end – and be willing to share experiences and knowledge. Of course, the organizers of the program can teach you a thing or two, but we’re sure you’ll be able to learn as least as much from each other.
Prior participation in the WCM Summer School is not needed but recommended. During the WCM Summer School, the focus is on developing domain knowledge and skills. In the Young WCM program, the focus is more on developing your maintenance innovation skills and professional network. So, they complement each other.
The deadline for application is the 1st of February, 2021 (deadline extended). If you want to participate, please fill in the Young WCM application form.
