(Approximately 75 to 90 minutes)
This webinar provides a holistic and practical approach to standardizing, stabilizing and optimizing processes. This “Business Process Management Approach” has practical tools and techniques that you can apply in your organization. See real life applications in a diverse set of processes including sales, manufacturing, and supply chain management.
Many of us were taught how to manage people, but we are rarely taught how to effectively manage processes. Edward Deming, the “father of quality” said that 94% of problems are due to the system, not the people. It is the responsibility of management to design processes in such a way that they produce the results we desire. If you are tired of “crisis management”, having tons of data that doesn’t point to a solution, or working harder than the results indicate, this webinar is for you.
