The Demand-Driven Value Chain Webcast -- Helping Manufacturers Boost Working Capital and Free Cash Flow
Thanks to the economy, credit crisis, pending recession, $120 price of oil, and a reported $765 billion dollar working capital problem in U.S. manufacturing, a tidal wave of manufacturers (including good ones) are looking inside their businesses to extract working capital and improve free cash flow.
The days of "pilot" Lean initiatives, subpar attempts at the nebulous visions of "waste reduction" and "improved efficiency" have left stale tastes in some executive suites, because free cash flow often sees little change.
Hear noted demand-driven value chain expert Tony Gorski share his insight on the dilemma, and what companies are doing about it. During this event, Gorski will provide industry perspective, how manufacturers are changing the way they look at their businesses, and approaches to driving the change.
