“An email request and off-the-cuff analysis are no way to make decisions. The lack of auditing and improvement can keep us in a cycle of inadequacy and frustration. Implementing these changes from ISP in all parts of our business will require effort and support from everyone but the future state is worth the effort”. Daniel Elkin, Master Scheduler, Marzetti
