Central Jersey APICS Presents:

Improving Performance & Efficiency Through Supply Chain Motivation

Jeffrey K. Bragar, CPIM CIRM

Most of us go to work every day as a routine, lacking enthusiasm and just working for that all-important paycheck.  Wouldn’t it be great to have a bit of spring in our step and consider our job as a pleasantry rather than a necessary evil?  This presentation will discuss what can be done particularly in a Supply Chain setting to increase motivation, resulting in improved performance and efficiency thus, benefiting the employer.  Applicable examples in the office, manufacturing and the warehouse will be discussed as well as an example that totally backfired.

Who Should Attend:

  • Supply Chain Executives
  • Supply Chain Professionals
  • Direct Labor Employees

 

What You Will Learn:

  • How to implement motivational programs
  • What not to do- trying to do the right thing can lead to disastrous consequences, how to avoid this trap
  • A Framework for Communication

 

Key Take-Aways:

  • Examples which can be implemented by management
  • Examples which can be suggested to management by employees
  • Examples that can backfire
