What's New

APICS is pleased to announce the official launch of the new, streamlined APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program. The new CPIM program requires that candidates pass two exams instead of five! The updated format delivers the same knowledge and skills as the legacy program, but has been restructured to meet the learning needs of today’s busy supply chain professionals. (more)

Top Five Unintended Leadership Pitfalls, and How To
Remedy Them
Top Management/Leadership Night Joint Meeting with
Boston APICS

March 14th, 2018

Please join us as we welcome David A. Goddard, Principal with Oliver Wight, on Wednesday March 14th at Montvale Plaza in Stoneham, for our Top Management/Leadership Night, held jointly with Boston APICS.

After 20 years working with executive teams to achieve Class A performance, there are some classic mistakes David has encountered, regardless of industry. During this presentation, he'll walk through the top five leadership challenges, recognize the part we have all played in making similar decisions or directions, and then talk through how successful companies manage their way through to better leadership positions.

It is not his intent to point the finger at anyone in this presentation; rather let’s take a moment to laugh at ourselves a little bit, and then talk through the reality of the situations.
