Session F21: LEAN PRINCIPLE: STRATEGIC PLANNING AND ORGANIZATIONAL ALIGNMENT
Taking your Business to the Next Level, Soraya Morgan Gutman, Brand Launcher
- Congratulations — you’ve made it past the ten-year mark. But if you’re like many other companies, you’ve arrived at the “Too Big, Too Small” stage of the game. You’re Too Big to keep doing things the way you’ve done them until now, but you’re Too Small to start pouring massive investments into your company. You need a plan for making the next ten years productive and profitable. This session reveals the steps you need to take to build a company that is valuable, sustainable, and ultimately, salable.

Session F31: LEAN JOB SHOP: IMPROVE YOUR “BOTTOM LINE” WITH BETTER QUOTING, ESTIMATING AND SCHEDULING STRATEGIES
Cost Reduction Strategies, Alan Lund, CORE Business Management Solutions
- This presentation will show business owners how to operate and manage their business via the ‘Check Book Approach.’ This approach requires that business owners know the true costs of the products and/or services that they provide. When an owner knows this, they can target resources on the specific areas where cost reductions gain ground for business stability and growth.
Estimating, Job Costing and Scheduling, John Kubit, VP of Sales, MIE Solutions, Inc.
- This presentation will investigate the estimating process in a made to order manufacturing environment, learning how to analyze shop resources for scheduling purposes and how to apply those resources within the shop effectively.
