Webinar: Abrasive Technology's 20-Year Journey to a Process-Centered Organization

Date: 
July 22, 2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Join Butch Peterman, CEO at Abrasive Technology, and his colleague Tanya Patrella as they describe their 20-year journey to a Process-Centered Organization. They'll take us back to 1995, when they first met Michael Hammer and adopted his ideas about business process design.

Abrasive Technology is a midwestern success story, a U.S.-based global manufacturer of super-abrasive grinding wheels and tools that has continued to thrive while others lost ground to offshore competitors. Peterman and Patrella attribute the company's sucess to process management along with heart culture, a business philosophy that brings together the interests of associates, suppliers, customers, and community.
