John Cox, Executive VP, Turkey Hill.
Turkey Hill was profitable and growing. Learn how, in this positive climate, Lean helped the company retain and improve its competitive strength by focusing on employee-centered problem-solving and job ownership.
“In the Turkey Hill culture, we have always believed our people make the difference. But, our old management structure didn’t allow our workers to be fully engaged. When we originally started with Lean, we were focusing more on tactics. It was when we turned our focus to the human element that we made real progress.”John Cox Executive VP Turkey Hill
