This program is designed for
high-performing managers who are

positions. The company

and a strategic project for the
participant to complete during the
program while practicing
The Illinois BIS Leadership Program is designed
to enhance the knowledge and skills of the next-generation of
leaders in a manufacturing organization.
Participants will learn to maximize team productivity, drive breakthrough
innovation, and secure a competitive edge for your
company. Through hands-on exercises and dynamic discussions,
they will learn key concepts and leadership best practices to
help to master complex challenges and capitalize on emerging
opportunities. They will learn to build on their strengths, encourage
introspection and self-discovery and apply what they learn
immediately back at work.
Sessions will tie leadership development to real on-the-job
projects that have a true business impact. This leadership development
program requires participants to apply their learning
directly in their organizations to address high-priority needs, i.e.
accelerating a new product launch, negotiating an external collaboration,
developing a lean implementation strategy or turning
around a sales region.
Each participant will be required to have an internal
mentor to oversee, coach and guide the participant throughout
the 6-month program and participants must come prepared with
a project that will provide opportunity to apply the new learning.
Participants will be exposed to key concepts in all major business
functions of a manufacturing company. Given the pace of change
today, adapting systems, processes and culture that can support
continuous improvement and rapid workplace transformation is critically
important for the future growth and success of manufacturing
