Pioneering and Engineering a New World

Presented by Chapter #1 - OPEN TO ALL
June 2, 11 a.m. Eastern time
Presenter: Jim Dobson, senior manager, The Walt Disney Company 

Jim is manager of business planning & industrial engineering at The Walt Disney Company and he is going to address how ISyE's can play a thought leadership and strategy, planning, executional role as many organizations enter unchartered territory. It is very clear to all of us that some "pioneering" is underway and that solutions are going to have to be well thought through, engineered, and executed. It is a perfect storm opportunity wise for ISE's.

With the novel Corona virus nearing its peak in the U.S., we (businesses) are catching our breath, assessing the damage, and interpreting the new world in which we all find ourselves. In this presentation, Jim will provide a framework for planning that highlights critical business needs and the role of ISyE business leaders. Given that we are well through the "first quarter," focus will be given to the priorities for us in the "second quarter" of the game and beyond.

Bottom line, Jim will share his thoughts as an ISE leader/manager on how we can and will succeed in the post COVID-19 context and conditions.

These phases help businesses correctly balance the health of employees with planning imperatives necessary for continuing operations.

We present this not as a model to copy, rather as a solid example of how curves can be managed through using data and facts to support decisions along the way. Utah is one of the first States to enter the Stabilization Stage and we can learn from their efforts.
