Speaker: Max Sutherland, Enterprise Excellence | Change Agent | Drive Top and Bottom-lines | Global | Business Strategy
Max Sutherland, an action driven enterprise-wide strategy and operational excellence executive, brings more than 20 years of global experience. Max focuses on both strategic planning and tactical execution initiatives to maximize top-and-bottom line performance. His career is solidly grounded in operations and account management with early wins that include an M&A integration, optimization of resources and supply chain processes, and restructuring of global account management and services management organizations, turning poor performing accounting into profitable key accounts. These highly visible initiatives created a global Center of Excellence and saved more than $8 million in annual operating costs and increased cash flow by more than 300%.
Presentation: "Enterprise Excellence – The Holy Grail for Business"
Many companies tout excellence in their mission statement or in their core values. Many companies launch enterprise excellence initiatives. But what are they really saying? What is “enterprise excellence”? Are these truly “enterprise excellence” programs? And can “enterprise excellence” be measured?
In this presentation, we’ll explore and discuss:
• The 4 levels of Excellence and their impacts on business
• The Holy Grail for business: Enterprise Excellence
• How to measure Enterprise Excellence
• The key components of successful Enterprise Excellence
• Enterprise Excellence Scenarios
Real scenarios will be used to illustrate and analyze Enterprise Excellence opportunities and results and provide you with a starting point to present an Enterprise Excellence initiative in your own organization.
