Dear Friends and Partners,

It is hard to believe that Summer is just around the corner. Vaccines, developed in a record time, are driving down the number of Covid-19 cases in the US and finally also in Europe. Some of us are starting to travel again internationally and we may finally see the light at the end of this long tunnel. Too many families have suffered, too many businesses need to recover. Our private lives and our business activity will, with high probability, now get back to a certain level of normality. We are all very much looking forward to that!

Business is, in most cases, reaching very high level of activity, for some coming back to pre-crisis levels, for others even going beyond that. This brings new challenges especially with supply chains under heavy load and intense stress levels. Global shortages in electronics are shutting down factories lacking key materials and some commodities are skyrocketing. Especially in the US, labor shortages are impacting operations and keeping business leaders up at night (most common cited factor) driving HR, efficiency and automation initiatives! Read full article

Lean Management

Jim Schreck

Providing value to customers, operational excellence, and employee engagement are critical to the long-term success and survival of your business. Global competition, both external and internal has never been clearer, and survival will be limited to those who proactively commit to continuous improvement and waste reduction. Reacting after threats are imminent is always too late.

Is your Sales Engine Designed for Performance?

Companies across industries strive or perish through the power (or weakness), and the performance, of their commercial engine. 

Sales organizations are challenged more than ever to rethink and re-design their operating systems in order to secure a strong market position in an often-ultra-competitive environment.

Le Cercle Executive Roundtable recently welcomed a select group of industry leaders, from around the globe, to exchange on the topic of designing high performance sales operating models and to learn how middle-market industry champions design their sales operating systems (SOS) and models (SOM) for success and high performance.

Altix Le Cercle is a virtual executive roundtable for industry champions to gather with peers, to exchange, learn, and benchmark; and to leverage best practices to develop a stronger competitive advantage.
