A special thank-you to Harmony Marketing Group (Bourbon, IN) and the Plant Manager Mr. Mark Baumgartner for hosting our third quarterly Renaissance Executive Forum IN Project Management Meeting.
We started off with introductions and then sharing our Cool Thing Learned since our last meeting in February. Next was an overview of PMI Michiana, and how we can leverage the knowledge of our local Chapter to develop and improve our processes and leadership.
Our Educational Componenent today was a workshop activity to Find Your Why, based on the TED talk provided by Simon Sinek in 2009. I think this was a great excercise. I worked with the President of the PMI Michiana Chapter, and we came up with PMI/Project Management Starting With Why of “Improve personal and corporate outcomes.” It think that really resonates and is why I am involved and what this Project Management Forum is all about.
Next was an overview of Harmony Marketing Group followed by a tour of their facility. Some pretty impressive products and machines that handle a variety of operations. One of the main focuses is consistency, from the first piece to the last piece, whether it is a small run or a run of hundreds of thousands or even millions.
We ended our morning with a Round Table of “Marketing and Sales Approach.” Some fantastic sharing of practices and philosophies ensued. Thank you to all who participated to make today a great learning opportunity and networking success.
