Competitive Systems and Practices

Competitive Systems and Practices (CSP) is a suite of qualifications designed to give people within your organisation the skills and knowledge they need to devise and implement more productive and competitive methods of working.

These qualifications draw on more than 80 years of cross-industry research on how improving systems and practices can reduce costs, waste, and increase efficiency.

Cost and time savings add to your profit margin; the transformative outcomes of workplace CSP learning can be applied to any work, in any industry.

What’s in it for your business?

CSP learning is not only about a specific knowledge set. It’s about learning to question existing methods and continuously look for improvements.

The beauty of on-the-job CSP learning is that the improvements your people discover are real and able to be implemented in your business immediately.

The benefits are long-lasting as graduates continue to look for additional improvements over time.

Workplace-based CSP qualifications deliver increased profitability and sustainability (cost and waste reduction), as well as complementing and maintaining your people’s core skills at every level of your organisation.
