APQC members can download a recording and the slides from the June APQC/AME Benchmarking CoP Webinar.

Join APQC and the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) on June 19 at 10:00 a.m. (CDT) for a complimentary Webinar on challenges facing North American manufacturing and ideas on how to this sector can retain its global competitiveness.

In April, APQC and AME hosted a session during APQC’s 17th Annual Knowledge Management Conference and Training to discuss this topic. Approximately 30 individuals attended the session, which included brief presentations by representatives from APQC and AME, followed by group discussions on how knowledge management principles could be applied to:

  •    promote product and process improvement and
  •    build an educated and trained workforce.

This Webinar, hosted by the AME and APQC Benchmarking Community of Practice (CoP) Steering Committee, will provide a summary of the potential solutions identified in the session. Webinar attendees will receive a complimentary white paper summarizing the findings.
