In January, we will be starting the next cycle of several of our peer groups. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen tremendous growth in our peer groups with over 100 participants from over 50 companies across more than a dozen role-based groups. Here’s a brief description of each:
- Business Management (e.g. COO) – for your senior leader tasked with overseeing and harmonizing the business operations.
- Business Development (Marketing/Sales) – for your VP of Sales, Business Development Manager, or even a senior salesperson who is interested in generating more demand and winning more opportunities.
- Project Management – for your Engineering Manager, PMO manager, or even a senior project manager is responsible for your project methodology and accountable for overall project success.
- Engineering/Operations – the person accountable for managing the development and production of goods and services
- Financial Management – for the leader of your finances accountable for the budget planning and financial insights to help make the best business decisions to manage and grow your organization.
We also still have an open seat in a few of our current peer groups, so there is still an opportunity to jump in:
- Human Resources – the person accountable for leading and directing the HR functions including hiring and interviewing staff, administering pay, benefits, and leave, and enforcing company policies and practices
- Quality/OE Management – the person accountable for ensuring that all of your products and services meet quality standards before they go to market.
- IT Management – the person accountable for the smooth running of our computer systems within the limits of requirements, specifications, costs and timelines.
Finally, we are starting a new peer group:
- OT Management – the person responsible for leading the charge in the OT space with expected topics such as MES, network security, AI/ML, analytics, service and support.
With the challenges of recruiting and retaining talent, our clients see our peer groups as a way of demonstrating their commitment to investing in the professional development of their key leaders. So, let us know who in your organization would most benefit from the opportunity to learn from their peers. And, we can follow up with additional information, answer any questions, and explore which group would best fit.
