In a post-COVID world, are manufacturers making the right investments to increase their adaptability to change?
The past several months have made it all too clear that manufacturing is susceptible to a host of threats from the outside world, as well as challenges from within. According to our survey of 400 senior manufacturing leaders, adaptability for the future is more important than efficiency, and people play a key role.

- How manufacturers are preparing for uncertain futures
- Top staffing and training concerns
- Internal roadblocks to implementing lean practices
