‘Where do opportunities for improvement lie? How do you translate those opportunities in the form of strategy development and improvement projects that meet your customers' needs and reinforce your competitive position? That's where the challenge lies for me. Success is determined by hands-on implementation. That's why I mobilize people from the shop floor to the boardroom. Their experience and expertise is essential to reaching structural improvements. No one knows the organization better than the people who work in it. Their professional skill and commitment is always amazing and inspiring. It's the prime mover for improvement.’
