WEBINAR: Lean goes digital: Applying lean to data and information processes

When:  Oct 17, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)
Organizations trying to improve via lean often run into a digital wall when processes begin to move faster than the data associated with them. That’s why leading companies now invest as much time in developing lean information processes as in the physical lean processes themselves. Their first step is to benchmark vs. industry peers — and to plan for a digitally more productive and profitable tomorrow.

In this complimentary webinar sponsored by Canon USA, MPI CEO John Brandt will detail specific information strategies and tactics that work hand-in-hand with lean initiatives to achieve operational excellence. More importantly, he will provide specific practices and quantitative targets that leaders must reach if they expect to achieve superior operational performance.


An experienced executive, entrepreneur, journalist, author, and researcher, John R. Brandt is the founder and CEO of The MPI Group, a global management research firm, and the former editor-in-chief and publisher of both Chief Executive and IndustryWeek magazines. His new book — "Nincompoopery: Why Your Customers Hate You — and How to Fix It" (HarperCollins, 2019) — is based on groundbreaking research into leadership and performance excellence across more than fifty thousand organizations. Brandt has earned more than twenty editorial awards for excellence, and also led more than three hundred advisory, marketing, research, and data engagements for clients, including Ernst & Young, Deloitte, Grant Thornton, Infor, the Italian Trade Commission, Microsoft, Performance Solutions by Milliken, SAP, and many others. Brandt also maintains a busy lecture schedule, speaking worldwide on how organizations, industries, and communities can avoid nincompoopery and despair by adapting themselves to the realities of new markets, new corporate structures, and new customer expectations.
