Manufacturing’s leadership deficit is real, and it can hurt a company’s bottom line. Compared to other industries, 15 percent fewer leaders in the manufacturing sector rated their company’s overall leadership quality as high, according to a recent study. To address this deficit and drive sustained competitive advantage, suppliers are invited to join OESA and DDI for an executive breakfast briefing on Global Leadership Trends in Manufacturing on May 30, 2018, at the OESA Conference Center in Southfield, MI.
DDI presenters Marilyn Carlstedt and Dr. James Clevenger will provide an overview of DDI’s recent Global Leadership Forecast 2018. The Global Leadership Forecast 2018 is an international study conducted by DDI, EY and The Conference Board, and centers on key findings about the current state, depth and context, and future of leadership.
The Global Leadership Forecast 2018 study integrates data from 25,812 leaders and 2,547 HR professionals across 2,488 organizations. These diverse perspectives represent the business context facing global enterprises today. The research spans more than 1,000 C-level executives and 10,000 high-potential employees across 54 countries and 26 major industry sectors, including transportation and manufacturing.
Key takeaways from this session include:
- How to close the gap on megatrends impacting the manufacturing industry including today’s “Manufacturing Leadership Deficit.”
- Understand digital leadership trends and how to bolster your digital strategy.
- See why low bench strength numbers compromise your bottom line and growth strategy.
- Learn actionable, high-impact leadership practices proven to gain a sustained competitive advantage.
A Q&A session with all speakers will follow the formal presentations.
