Hundreds of leaders from manufacturing companies have joined a peer group to collect feedback on challenges, benchmark leading manufacturers and look beyond their four walls for best practices and new perspectives.

Beyond traditional training

Peer Group Benefits

  • Relationships with peers that foster improvement and growth
  • Benchmarking tours of other leading manufacturing companies
  • Discussion of best practices and sensitive issues in a confidential forum
  • Share tools, templates, and contacts through our online forum

“Peer groups have been a great experience, allowing me to expand my network of professionals in manufacturing and gain valuable insight on current topics in the industry. In addition to the presentations and knowledge sharing sessions, participating in tours and benchmarking other companies has given me further insight to make my company better.”

Angie Wordell, EVP Operations, Graco Inc.
