MANAGING FOR GROWTH SERIES – The Productivity Paradox: See it…solve it!
June 3, 2015 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
What if you could double your productivity without any capital investment? What if your business could be fast, flexible, and low cost? It can be! Because the solution to this paradox is hiding in plain sight – if you know where to look.
Being fast can increase cost and decrease quality. Being flexible – providing variety and customization – can slow things down and escalate price. And being low cost requires standardization without variation. Being all three—fast, flexible and low cost—seems contradictory, if not impossible— except to a process mind.
For over thirty years, Phil Kirby has helped hundreds of companies solve this paradox, transform their business, and achieve unparalleled performance improvement. He said, “Your problems are hiding in plain sight; in the processes of your business, whether you are making widgets, distributing gizmos or servicing needs. You can outperform your competition by changing the way you think about process, by developing a process mind.”
In a compelling, persuasive, remarkably pragmatic talk, Phil explained where to look and what to do. He revealed how most companies are good at one, maybe two, of these performance goals but few are able to deliver on all three. Phil shared amazing performance improvement stories, drawing from his worldwide list of customers from all business sectors.
In a captivating, candid, conversational style, Phil took the audience from the boardroom to the frontlines, moving easily from thought-leading management theory to roll-up-your-sleeves, in-the-trenches practices. He said, “Productivity is rooted in the guts of your business—in your processes. And superior performance—that is sustainable—depends on the way you see think about, and run these processes.” It takes a process mind, operating with new thoughtware®.
