Manufacturing Leadership StrategiesErnst & Young - Advanced Manufacturing Leader – Central Region and Partner, Tax Services
Ernst & Young - Senior Manager in the Advisory Services practice

With today’s transformative business landscape, you must stay on top of existing priorities while planning ahead for disruption. According to EY’s Industrial Products Continuous Innovation Study 2018, developed with input from c-suite executives across large manufacturing companies, the six “big bets” that most effect the future-readiness for industrial companies are customer connectivity, supply chain reinvention, talent and culture, digital assimilation, big data and analytics, and enterprise protection. Join us as we explore the major forces driving change in industrial products companies and discuss how to navigate the pressure to grow and produce results today while investing in the future for long-term viability. A deeper look into customer-centric expectations and supply chain reinvention for a connected ecosystem will also be shared.

close Evolution of the Product Development Process to Support Business Demands

Streamlining the R&D Process for SuccessDorel Juvenile Group - Chief Research and Product Development Officer

Evolving business needs have led to the evolution of Product Development processes. This evolution has seen some turmoil in recent times. Product Development teams are faced with a dilemma: develop the perfect product or fail fast through market level experimentation.The answer clearly lies in a hybrid model. My talk will help establish the rules of thumb for this hybrid model of product development.

Key Take-Aways

  • Multiple approaches to product development processes exist
  • Organizations and teams need not (and should not) pick one approach. A hybrid approach will serve better
  • Each organization must build their own hybrid model, not rely on a one size fits all
  • The product development approach in an organization can and must only be built with cross functional participation, much like the development of a product

close Why It's Time to Stop Building the Business Case for Sustainability

Sustainability & Cost Containment ManagementSealed Air - President, Product Care

Customers aren’t willing to pay more for sustainable products. Customers are demanding more sustainable products. Shareholders are putting pressure on us to deliver on sustainability goals. Shareholders are putting pressure on us to deliver on margin. The divisive dichotomy of what it means to develop, manufacture, and sell sustainable products is more prevalent and painful than ever as R&D and marketing teams are asked to defend the environmental value proposition of the products they developed long ago, and to bring new “unicorn” solutions to market that are good for the earth and good for business. Ken Chrisman, President of Sealed Air’s protective packaging division, shares why it’s time for leaders like him to stop demanding an immediate measurable return on investments in sustainable innovation, and why the greatest foes that R&D innovators face are the perceptions of the very same conscious consumers they’re creating sustainable products for.

Key Take-Aways

  • Playing sustainability defense is draining for innovators – how can you get back on offense?
  • Why is sustainability suddenly the hot topic in the c-suite and investor call – what has changed so dramatically about the way companies think about sustainability?
  • How can R&D influence their leaders to think differently about investing in sustainable product innovation?
  • What are the misconceptions of consumers that innovators have to overcome?
