One of their keynote speakers is Professor Steven J. Spear, a previous guest on my Podcast series (episodes #58 and #87) and the author of the book The High-Velocity Edge: How Market Leaders Leverage Operational Excellence to Beat the Competition.
As a preview to their conference, IQPC has a new podcast discussion of their own with Spear, which you can find on this page.
In the podcast, they talk about topics including:
- What is a “high-velocity” company?
- How are some companies able to generate far better performance than the rest in their industry, across every relevant measure?
- How is Toyota an example of this, even with recent problems?
- What common themes are there with the U.S. nuclear navy and its safety record?
