Alpha and Omega of Project Success - March 10
Join APICS Wichita for our March meeting - In today’s competitive environment, the success of projects is less often driven by commodity based analytical tools but by collaborative project definition, leadership and control models. During this PDM session, Brian will review real life case studies to examine why some projects succeed and maintain their improvements while others fall apart resulting in team frustration and failure.
The President's Message
We had another great tour this month when McGinty Machine opened their doors for us. Our plant tours have proven to be so popular and it is easy to see why. I, for one, always learn something new and it is great to have the opportunity to see the many examples of manufacturing excellence that we have locally and in the surrounding area.
I look forward to seeing everyone at our March PDM where our speaker, Brian Hays of Case New Holland, will enlighten us on the always important topic of Project Management success (and why some are not so successful). Then, in April at our Spring Seminar we will have the opportunity to learn from Bryan Ward how to optimize our processes to make our ERP and related systems more effective. So, there is a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months and I hope everyone can share in these outstanding learning opportunities.
