On Tuesday April 29th Brock successfully hosted a webinar the topic of educating executives on MES with the focus of aligning business technology to bring measurable value.
Executives from various industries and over 20 different corporations attended to listen to MES practise leader, Stephanie Mikelbrencis and Co-CEO of Brock Solutions, John Southcott speak about the confusion around MES, what we see in the market, and best practises around leadership education and alignment.
During this webinar, Brock Solutions shared our experience working with manufacturers to educate and align their leadership teams around MES.
A week doesn’t go by where we are not asked questions like: What value will MES bring to my bottom line? Doesn’t my ERP solution do this? How do I get started? As companies explore MES, the focus is often on the technical solution, and while the solution is key, a critical piece of the puzzle is educating and aligning the leadership team so that they have a clear and specific understanding of what MES will do for their business, how it will support their strategic initiatives, and what to do (and not do) to ensure implementation success and acceptance on the plant floor.
During this webinar we explored these topics and shared practical examples of working with manufacturing executives around MES education. Attendees walked away with a perspective on what matters to a leadership team considering MES, and how to begin getting the alignment necessary for driving successful MES programs.
Co-presenters Stephanie Mikelbrencis and John Southcott from Brock Solutions have been providing Executive Education around MES for the last several years, and were happy to share their perspectives during the webinar. Steph leads Brock’s MES Practice, and John is Brock’s co-CEO and MESA’s past chair. The webinar was interactive and allowed time for questions and answers.
