Click here to register!
All organizations experience pain and they react to that pain based on the symptoms, but rarely do they have a systematic process to get to the root cause. That is why Manufacturer’s Edge created a program called Organizational Excellence that teaches companies how to transform their company while engaging their most critical and expensive resource, their human capital to make them process capable.
This webinar will cover the following topics:
- Why organizations fail at process improvement
- The five pinch points that cause pain in an organization
- When it is time to redesign your organization and how to engage the Human Capital to get exponential results
- The 5 attributes of a healthy organization
- How to assess your own company’s health
