Leaders at two Center for Operational Excellence member companies have taken their lean transformation stories to the publishing world.
For an event that grows in scope and diversity each year, uniting hundreds of process improvement leaders from around the globe, it’s no coincidence one of the keynote speakers for the Center for Operational Excellence’s spring summit is co-author of a book called Scaling Up Excellence.
Ryan Arbogast is the fourth-generation leader of COE member WillowWood, which joined the center in 2006.
The two featured speakers at the Center for Operational Excellence’s upcoming quarterly seminar might be from two wildly different industries, but they’re both bringing stories that illustrate a stark truth about the world today: The rules of the game are changing, and standing still isn’t an option.
As more industries turn to lean principles to drive gains in productivity and increase cost savings, a longstanding partnership at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business is expanding to match a burgeoning need for know-how.
