Ralf VonSosen:
If you had one thing to leave the audience with in terms of preparing for 2022 what would, what would that be?

 

Errette Dunn:
So many managers, and I’ve seen this with plant managers, sometimes feel overwhelmed at the challenges that they face every day on the shop floor. They feel that burden on their shoulders, right? Sometimes they can delegate some of that burden to their top experts and problem solvers and managers, but still within that circle of management they feel they need to carry all those problems. I think the key way to prepare for 2022 is to truly empower all of your employees. Empower everybody in your workforce to be that army of problem solvers. That implies having the right skills, knowing the right job to be done, and having skills for problem solving. You may be surprised at the wonderful things that will happen when you have that army of problem solvers. The main message is to trust your people and the best way to enact trusting your people is getting the right skillset, having them participate in setting standards, giving them the right technology tools so they can collaborate with each other and you’ll see great things happening.

 

Ralf VonSosen:
Great. Mike, how about you?

 

Mike Kritzman:
Engage people in a community of knowledge development and training. Get them to feel proud and engaged in the work that they’re doing is such a big key. Whatever companies are doing, whether you are using advanced technology, spreadsheets, or clipboards, get involved in developing your people is going to make a big difference in 2022.

 

Ralf VonSosen:
I agree that people are so critical. Daan we are giving you the last word.

 

Daan Assen:
Trust the wisdom of your crowd indeed. And the crowd is your frontline. But we talked about trust already. I like a quote that we got from Heineken when they started on their journey with us. Their global supply chain manager said, “Don’t get ready, get started”. We come across a lot of companies that have all kinds of reasons to not get started on the journey of empowering the frontline, and starting to use digital tools that engage the workforce. Don’t get ready, get started. Start working with these tools, start testing, start learning and make sure that you can scale it up because it will give you the insights that you’re looking for and will build the resilience that you need in 2022.
