Alexey Zhdanov, Head of the Exhaust Units and Aft-Bearing of Gas Turbines for the Ground Application Team of the DD-2052 Exhaust Units and Aft-Bearing Supports Department of the Aviadvigatel Exhaust Units and Nacelles Division, said, «My project aims to arranging the effective management of the team which is engaged in engineering and supporting the manufacture, the installation and the life cycle of exhaust units, aft-bearing supports of gas turbines for the ground application, heat-recovery boilers and hot water boilers of gas turbine power plants. I received a great deal of positive impressions from participating in the Programme. In the Programme highly skilled teachers work who not only know their subject but can bring their knowledge to listeners. The Programme taught me to effectively work in team, split the work properly, manage subordinates effectively and develop projects.»

Evgeny Kazakov, Head of the Manufacturing Engineering Group of the Control Software Simulation and Development Department of the Aviadvigatel Preproduction Engineering Automated Systems Division, said, «Under the Programme I took part in the project of arranging a high-technological shop area at the Aviadvigatel pilot-production plant using robotic centers. At this shop area parts of molds and engine compressor vanes are mainly manufactured. Due to the participation in the Programme I gained the tooling necessary for the work, for example, I mastered such an approach to solving tasks as project management, systematized that knowledge which I had already had in my ‘bundle', increase the level of my English language proficiency. The most interesting disciplines for me became strategic management, investment analysis and situational management. After the training and doing training courses you look at the task assignment process in other way and understand how to arrange the interaction with the team and the management in a better manner. I am going to take part in the second stage of the training under the President Programme and apply for the internship abroad in my line.»

Tatyana Snitko, Aviadvigatel Human Resources Director, said, «In Aviadvigatel it is the practice to form the managerial core of the staff from the amount of the in-house employees, not invited specialists. For the training under the President Programme young workers of Aviadvigatel are usually sent who have already been actualized themselves as skilled workers and assigned at a position of a line manager. Thus we aim to develop their scope, increase the effectiveness of their thinking, familiarize with various tools of the managerial activity, enrich with new skills and approaches to the everyday work — such that in a few years they actualize themselves as good managers of the higher level, too.»
