“Leveraging the Alliance’s peer groups to partner with other MN manufacturers has been a great way to discuss how we are all solving common problems and to learn from each other’s CI journey. Participating in peer groups has allowed us to mature our capabilities more rapidly so we can better serve our customers.”

“There is tenure and history among the group that allowed me to seek advice and wisdom that I did not have yet. As I have continued to grow in my role, the knowledge and experience that has come from this group has helped me in my growth.”
