Optimizing Teams for Fast Flow

Do you find yourself asking how do we ensure teams are aligned, working together, and delivering value to the organization all while continuing to find optimization opportunities over time? How do we build intentional resilience, predictability and agility? These questions pose challenges for leaders at small and large companies alike. We are all operating in highly complex environments, mitigating macro-economic and geopolitical impacts that lead to a crisis response mentality and often stunt our focus on people and organizational effectiveness.

In this discussion with Collette Tauscher, Director of Supply Chain Strategy at Columbia Sportswear Company, we will take a closer look at how to rethink optimization and visibility through the lens of the business.

Main Takeaways:

  1. Start with the culture shift needed to activate a people-centric approach
  2. Pace yourself and the team with intentional capacity prioritization
  3. Celebrate continuous learning
