We are excited to offer our readers some more content from the Business Transformation & Operational Excellence World Summit! Courtesy of David Margil & Jeff Hastie, Keynote speakers at the summit from Bose Corporation, the slides describe how they engaged with IT leadership at Bose—who were initially reluctant—to inspire them to begin and then sustain a culture of continuous improvement. 

Hear from Jeff & David on:

  • Engaging with leadership and engineering the “ask” – how to get leaders to move from no to yes
  • Laying out the roadmap – making sure leadership knows how to get started
  • Creating a culture, not a program – going slow to go fast
  • Focus areas to create a strong foundation – critical success factors
  • Roadblocks and speedbumps – when the journey doesn’t go as planned
  • Where are we now, where are we going? – the value of persistence
