The Listen and Learn Campaign is a process improvement initiative that was designed to help leadership experience firsthand how their department affects others. Benefits of the program include easy implementation and cost reduction by increasing efficiencies across all departments in an organization. In addition to exploring ways to cut expenses and to increase productivity, this initiative helps breaks down barriers between departments.
After participating in the program, you will come away with a greater understanding of the challenges that other departments face and how these can be reduced by making simple changes. The upfront cost is minimal but the value this program produces is substantial.
