dc.description.abstract South African manufacturers are re-entering the global market where competition is fierce. Greater and faster learning is necessary for organisational survival in the turbulent global market Learning is understood to be a continuous cycle of activities. Continuous Improvement is shown to be a continuous learning cycle. World Class Manufacturing methodologies are described as being an effective manner to make performance improvements as they are based on Continuous Improvement. Reviews of Learning, Continuous Improvement and World Class Manufacturing methodologies and techniques used by companies in international industry are presented.
