The C-Lean Energy Academy, the training program created by Pietro Fiorentini in collaboration with MIP Politecnico di Milano, has officially started on the 20th of September 2021. The first week included face-to-face classes by teachers of MIP and business experts and two days of tours of the plants of our Company.
The twenty-five students selected to participate were welcomed by Mario Nardi, CEO of Pietro Fiorentini Group, who presented the Academy and its goals.
The programme will include two more weeks of lessons and a virtual community always active until the end of the course, when the participants will elaborate their project works on topics related to energy transition, Lean & Agile Management and sustainability.
The first lessons were dedicated to the analysis of the context, with sessions on current topics such as climate change, sustainability, digital transformation, and a focus on Sustain-ability to change, the 2020 Sustainability Report published by Pietro Fiorentini to describe the company’s commitment to environmental protection, social development and governance transparency.
Paolo Gaffuri, leader of Pietro Fiorentini Systems Value Stream, explains: “We shared with the students valuable information about the history, the structure and the projects of our company. We told them about the values that guide us, the strategies we have implemented in our growth path and the challenges we will have to face, with the intention of inspiring all those who intend to pursue a career in the energy sector.”
At the end of the first week, the students visited three of the Italian sites of the Pietro Fiorentini Group: the Arcugnano headquarters, the Rosate plant and TIV Valves subsidiary in Rescaldina.
The subject of the tours was the production areas where the Kaizen Team illustrated how our company approaches topics such as product and process development, quality improvement, leader manager standards and material management.
The next themes of the C-Lean Energy Academy will be smart grids, renewable energies such as hydrogen, power-to-gas and biomethane, management, innovation and personnel development methods, to complete a course that aims to develop professional skills fundamental for new professionals who want to contribute to build the future of energy in terms of sustainability.
