Progressive manufacturers reach world-class results by embedding continuous improvement into their culture. To do this, leaders must develop lasting systems to drive behavior that shapes company culture. This alignment guides employees in the right direction for the long run. Don't get caught up in the flavor of the month effort, avoid focusing on the application of tools alone, and overcome the "this too shall pass" mentality. Learn from experienced peers via our presentation, Q&A, and networking - what has worked and what hasn't - to help sustain your continuous improvement journey.
