(PRWEB UK) 17 January 2013
Companies around the globe are racing to exploit process improvement solutions such as Six Sigma and Lean. In doing so, they aim to reduce costs, empower their workforce and serve their customers more effectively. However, these companies are discovering that process improvement solutions are not able to adequately address the challenges faced by front-line managers as they are squeezed between corporate demands and customer satisfaction.
Many organisations have realised that these challenges are due in large part to the inadequate amount of time available to front-line managers to spend managing operations and staff; in some cases as little as 10% of available time is spent on these key activities. These organisations are turning to AOMi for internationally recognised best practices in operations management that allow front-line managers to spend more time actively managing their operations and staff, resulting in significant performance improvements. These best practices are embodied in Active Operations Management (AOM), AOMi’s innovative approach to operations management.
On the third day of this year’s IQPC PEX Conference (23 January) at 12.20pm, Michael Cooper, Program Director at TD Bank, will be presenting a case study entitled ‘Sustainable Capacity Management with a focus on the Customer’. This exclusive session will demonstrate how TD Bank, known as ‘America’s Most Convenient Bank’, is realising the benefits gained from adopting the AOM approach. The case study will explain how the approach has enabled TD Bank to achieve sustainable productivity growth, while reducing operational costs. Over the past year, TD Bank has deployed the AOM approach to nearly 2,000 employees across multiple locations and functions, with measurable positive results.
If you are interested in scheduling a one-to-one briefing with AOMi at the PEX 2013 conference, you will find them at booth 9. Alternatively, please contact Eric Sharpe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chris Garfield (email@example.com).
If you are interested in finding out more about how you can help your front-line managers to spend more time actively managing operations and staff, please see AOMi’s recent white paper (Empowering Front-Line Managers by Professionalizing Operations Management) and webinar (Managers Too Busy Being Busy?
