· Coming from a process background, I am now able to understand what goes in maintenance and will now find it easier to keep equipment on my plant in good shape. I will be able to participate more in maintenance activities and will introduce the use of decision diagram in my plant.  Propose that this WCM-RCM training is extended to our plant in KCM, Zambia, From Clive Makasa, Associate Manager, Process


· Very good delivery of the course.  Very good examples, video, display and audios.  I understood that failures can only be reduced and not eliminated. Every failure have its own maintenance class.  Participation of the class was effective.  Punctuality of the presenter was excellent.  I am the first person who should change to make SIIL better from the Man in the Mirror, quoted from the late Michael Jackson. From Pumolo John Mayungo, Associate Manager, SIIL


· Learnt about the operations responsibility in maintenance.  Learnt all failures can’t be avoided, some are bound to occur.  Excellent presentation and case studies.  Equipment reliability can be improved via structural maintenance method and that’s the biggest learning learnt.  Complete and thorough subject.  Motivated the team to perform RCM. From Snigdharup Das, Engineer Sterlite Industries

WCM is a thoroughly basic fundamental which have been very well explained and it is a great pleasure listening to Rolly’s lecture.  A must attend for every maintenance personnel and production personnel also.  From Sridhar K. Head Mechanical Sterlite Industries, Silvata


· Very different way of presentation keeping the class interested all the time.  Good correlation between the maintenance aspects and the videos you show to demonstrate the message.  It is a unique way and easy way of giving message that otherwise would look subjective.  Things taught in simple ways for all of us to understand.  Apart from the normal training, it was wonderful for you on your part to ask the audient to do something good in this 5 day class, that was really a good thought and I have done some.  Thank You Rolly and “God bless you”.  From Vipu John Mathew, Associate Manager, Sterlite Industries


· It was very useful to recollect the basics of maintenance.  Being a technical program, the way in which the faculty explained the concepts was very good and attractive.  More positive insights were given during the presentation.  The best part is that we are made aware of the lying human and latent cause behind any physical cause that leads to the failure.  The learning materials provided and the case studies presented were very relevant and were very useful to the program.  A complete transition/revolution in the maintenance approach attitude can be achieved through this program.  The best part is that he used his passion to explain the concepts in such a beautiful way. From  R. Rajalaksham, Associate Manager Sterlite Industries


· I was on the opinion that maintenance is all about simply tightening bolt, replacing parts and applying oil.  The training has altogether change my view on the term maintenance.  It is more than an engineering and RCM is like “a diamond in the crown”.  To add on about the faculty, a clean, knowledge man on maintenance practices.  Case studies are marvelous and tasks major part in making us understand better the concept.  From M. Shanmuga Sundaram, Associate Manager, Sterlite Industries

· This training was an eye opener in terms of maintenance practices we use and change the thought process of looking at the failures.  Till now we did not know that we are the ones who allows equipment to fail by our maintenance.  The workshop and training sessions were very excellent and helped me in changing my view about maintenance and failures.  Preventive Maintenance is not to be done only by maintenance team but also with operators that will help everyone in understanding failures in the future.  From Jayant, Associate Manager, Sterlite Industries


· Highly innovative way to teach the toughest function in an industry.  It is probably the only thing when implemented that can transform the plant a better place to work in.  Workshops were carried out practically so we could realize in a true sense the actual value of RCM.  Also some intangible values were taught which also could be carried out by us way back.  From Pradeep Nair, Manager, Electrical

· It gives us a clear knowledge on how to apply Root Cause Failure Analysis on our equipment.  This course motivates us to learn how to handle the problem without pin-pointing individuals for the fault and instead go for the more effective way of solving problems using RCFA.  The way we treat problem on the equipment, the more effective way it will increase the efficiency of our plant if we can operate our equipment for a long time without failures.  From Danilo Reyes, Area Shift Supervisor, KILN Production


· The topics are clearly explained.  Facilitator is good in capturing the attention of the crowd and shares a lot of information about the subject and topic. Uses good presentation materials.  From Raymond Lazaro, KILN, Production

And most importantly the 12 disciplines which are applicable on our job will be practiced.  From Antonio Sabulao Jr.


· It has enhanced my knowledge on proper maintenance of plant equipment.  World Class Maintenance opened my eyes on the 12 disciplines that will be use to compete with the world’s best.  It was a very nice feeling to have a trainer that can relate to our feelings as maintenance personnel.  This course/seminar is really written for maintenance personnel's.  From Leodesorio Ocampo


· I have too much learning experience got in this training.  I learned how to be a good maintenance in all things and how to avoid also a failure and good lubrication strategy.  I am hoping that these are my best weapon in the journey of my life.  This training gave me an idea on how to manage the journey of my life.  From Dennis Romano, Apprentice


· I learned a lot regarding how to elevate our maintenance to a world class type.  What I like about the training is the exchange of ideas and the audience – instructor-delegate interaction.  I also like the discussions on Root Cause Failure Analysis. There is a lot of knowledge and skills learned even through the basics.  From Terrence Tadeo


· The good point about this training for me I think is that I have learned more knowledge about maintenance management.  Not only the maintenance management but also some more lessons about life.  From Maria Carmela Tanedo


· The training is very holistic in its approach.  The practical application and examples are very evident in the workplace.  The trainer does not only focus on theoretical aspect but as well as the human factor which greatly affects the execution of strategies.  The ice breakers in view is very reflective and has great importance on people.  From Gary Tongco, Training Specialists


· The 12 disciplines of world class maintenance is a good training program that covers not only the technical side of the people, the personal insights and experiences of the speaker.  His thoughts about work relationship to me is what made this training significant after all being together is the start, staying together is progress and working together is success.  Name withheld

This portion is dedicated to the greatest band of The Rolling Stones, which started in 1962 and still together. What made them stick together after simply five decades of music, I simply can't say, as Keith Richards said in his book "Life. If I can excite Mick, then Mick can excite the world. Last 2012 they started celebrating their fifty-six years as a band.  They are considered the longest-running band on the planet.  What makes them great is their passion; as Keith Richard said in his book "Life," if I can excite Mick, Mick can excite the world.   This is a band that never split or separate, and they will be there together for life.

Some say that changing culture should start from the top.  Others say it’s a bottom-up approach.  There is no easy & conclusive answer to this, but all I can say is that change is something that should start from within and I think nobody says it better than the late “King of Pop,” that change should start from the “Man in the Mirror.”  by Michael Jackson
