Lunch & Learn – Lean As A Growth Strategy
March 4, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$10
Join former Wiremold Company executive, Ed Miller, for this highly informative lunch and learn focused on the why and how a lean transformation can be a key corporate growth strategy that offers a company significant and unfair competitive advantages.
This lunch and learn will provide business leaders with a strategic overview of basic considerations, behaviors, and tools in executing a lean transformation to grow top and bottom lines. Using examples from The Wiremold Company (Wiremold is the Shingo prize-winning company featured in the books, ‘Better Thinking, Better Results’ by Bob Emiliani and ‘Lean Thinking’ by Womack & Jones) and others, the discussion will cover strategic direction and impact of a lean business system. The discussion will also explore the impact on people and considerations in corporate and go-to-market strategies to win.
Mr. Miller’s presentation will touch on concepts involving value pricing, Lean product development, how to decide investment/capital decisions based on lean accounting thinking, selling to end users, OEMs and various distributor channels, and leveraging lean capabilities as an unfair competitive advantage. Mr. Miller will also discuss how competing on speed positions you to win over the customer from end use and product design/services through delivery, all to help your customer win business resulting in you being more valuable to them.
