On Monday, Nov. 25, Thomas Friedli, a professor at the University of St. Gallen's Institute of Technology Management, will share examples of Lean manufacturing leadership and best-practices in the pharmaceutical industry, including tips on how to support and lead these efforts. He will also discuss his new book on this topic.
On Tuesday, Nov. 26, William Botha, who has held senior management positions and has led Kaizen and other initiatives at Baxter and other companies within and outside the pharma industry, will share best-practices for creating a sustainable change culture, projecting leadership values and vision, and communicating and adapting change tools to your operations.
