Overview of the webinar

In today’s world, there are questions which need to be answered:

  • What is the best competitive strategy?
  • What are our Information Technology needs?
  • How good are the business processes to satisfy our customers’ needs.

The leadership wants to know the best way to prepare the enterprise for continued success.  Customers are demanding more from their suppliers.   A recent “Industry Week” communication cited “this cold reality of the unforgiving customers who demand on-time delivery, flawless order accuracy, comprehensive traceability and unmatched quality”.   Those requirements coupled with the ongoing bottom-line pressure to cut costs present suppliers with a stark choice to evolve or die.   Performance improvement is not an option! 

Are you ready to take the necessary action?    This presentation includes a ten (10) point assessment that will measure a company’s posture for addressing growth.

The program includes practical methodology needed to enhance performance throughout an enterprise.   This comprises Lean Thinking principles as noted below:
