MPI Next Generation Management Study

MPI Next Generation Management Study

The Next Generation Management Study (NGM Study) defines the strategies necessary for world-class performance and success into the next generation.

A key first step in any company improvement initiative is to benchmark performance — and the NGM Study provides these benchmarks.more The study includes data from more than 3,600 U.S. manufacturers of all sizes, representing virtually every industry — establishing a “scorecard” for U.S. manufacturers in these six strategies:

  • Customer-focused innovation: Develop, make, and market new products and services that meet customers’ needs at a pace faster than the competition.
  • Engaged people/human capital acquisition, development, and retention: Secure a competitive performance advantage by having superior systems in place to recruit, hire, develop, and retain talent.
  • Superior processes/improvement focus: Record annual productivity and quality gains that exceed the competition through a company-wide commitment to continuous improvement.
  • Supply-chain management and collaboration: Develop and manage supply chains and partnerships that provide flexibility, response time, and delivery performance that exceed the competition.
  • Sustainability: Design and implement waste and energy-use reductions at a level that provides superior cost performance and recognizable customer value.
  • Global engagement: Secure business advantages by having people, partnerships, and systems in place that are capable of engaging global markets and talents better than the competition.
