Do you think that you can double your productivity without any capital investment. Phil Kirby can help you to think about the process in your business, to be flexible, and to reduce your costs. 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.

With Phil Kirby learn some ways you can transform your business, and achieve new goals.

He says, “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 captivating, candid, conversational style, Phil takes the audience from the boardroom to the frontlines, moving easily from thought-leading management theory to roll-up-your-sleeves, in-the-trenches practices.
