Agency Operations: A Review & Approval Supply Chain Case Study

Tuesday, May 5 • 7:45 – 8:45am

Review and approval is both a critical stage and the Achilles heel of Work In Progress (WIP). Often the victim of unnecessary revisions, idle time waiting on feedback, and other productivity killers. Leading to delays, cost increases and margin erosion.

A supply chain approach is the solution being championed by a growing number of agency operations teams - where they can measure every step of the process, identify bottlenecks, best practices, and other opportunities to improve the review and approval process.

With this supply chain approach, agency operations teams are achieving significant improvements:
  • Increasing the number of assets delivered on time
  • Decreasing their cost per asset (i.e. increasing margin)
  • Increasing client satisfaction

Hear how agencies are achieving these and other operation benefits.
