Doug Jones ,

You are right on target and many have for years understood this.

When you visit a really good factory you will see meeting rooms or areas
right at the work space so people may meet when ever necessary to address
a problem and start or select corrective action.

In addition there are companies that apply training on demand rather than
in seminar blocks. These are very effective and off knowledge only when
the learner is ready to accept it.
