Details of Tour
We are working to make the NLC the Visual Showcase “again” for Cardinal Health but even better. In the NLC past, we had great examples of Operations MBO’s (Management by Objectives), Leader Standard Work, and 5S etc. However, when crisis hit (COVID, Leadership changes, etc.) the Op Ex program crashed.
A good example of how “Culture eats Strategy for breakfast. I will share our progress with the group.
