Building a Culture of Continuous Improvement
Presented by: Amanda Dietz
The employees at Santee Cooper have been working to find new and innovative ways to improve our business practices for 75 years. However, increased competition and our changing industry environment creates the need to do more. In 2014, we began building a Continuous Improvement program. This presentation will share with the audience some of our experiences and lessons learned along the way.
