Are You Capable of Reaching Your Lofty Ambitions?

 Attendees will gain a renewed appreciation of how important it is to motivate team members to attain strategic targets.  Team members will appreciate “going for the gold” is critical to their success and the success of the organization.

Brett will build on his article in the May/June 2016 issue of APICS Magazine.  T he “Lessons Learned” column focused on the expression –

You cannot manage what you do not measure,

what gets measured gets done,

what gets rewarded gets done first”
