However, when Leadership sees the value of LPAs and participates appropriately, the organization can achieve a culture of accountability, process control and continuous improvement. What's the payoff? A reduction of scrap, rework, customer complaints, warranty and recalls. "Leadership" goes beyond tacit support by Top-Management. Learn how you can leverage your human assets to take your organization to the next level of performance.
