Improving Business Performance Webinar Series

Harbour Results has been benchmarking manufacturers' performance for more than 10 years and in the data collected via surveys and assessments, the company has been able to identify top performers based on a number of criteria.

These businesses drive continuous improvement because they have great leadership. They are edgy and constantly challenge the status quo so they are better today than yesterday. During February’s Executive Conference, Laurie Harbour presented 10 ways to become a top performer. This webinar series will dive deep into three key areas to help die casters improve flexibility and agility, match supply and demand the best they can, perform and make money regardless of the upcoming business conditions. Participants will receive actionable insights to improve businesses performance.

Part 1 - Are You Running Perfect Every Time? - It sounds lofty, but why not establish a target to run perfect every time and set your team up for success. This webinar will do a deep dive into what it means to run perfectly, metrics to put in place to determine if you are achieving “perfect” or if there is room for improvement and how to identify and implement lessons learned from one job to the next.

Part 2 - Driving Flexibility into Your Business - All too often flexibility is used as a buzzword. In reality, if your business is flexible, you can reduce downtime, lower cost, improve efficiency, increase innovation and respond faster to the ever evolving marketplace. This webinar will share how shops can increase their flexibility and how to leverage flexibility to make improvements across the business.

Part 3 - Good Leaders Go See, Go Act - As a leader it is your job to create and support a culture of accountability where people are encouraged to identify and support improvement opportunities. During this session we take a closer look at the costs of not acting quickly to make improvements, the questions your teams should be asking and processes to put in place to encourage action.
