Railway organisations and their teams have traditionally been built to function in highly segregated arrangements. This has resulted in difficulty in building synergies between departments and sub-systems, in operations and projects. The course provides an introduction of the railway technical concepts and elements for non-technical personnel.

This course helps managers, and their teams apply a systems approach in decision making through the use of critical thinking and analytical skills within the railway environment. The course elaborates on the application of effective stakeholder management for the desired outcome for teams. Fazi Rail Academy helps railway organisations build synergised teams from junior management/supervisor level to accounting authority level. We enable railway organisations towards creating a new breed of railway professionals, who apply systems thinking in their day-to-day functions.
