Benchmarking Week – Kansas City, MO.- Novmeber 15-20, 2009
The 2010 Executive Potential Program (EPP) met in Kansas City to gain experiences and information on the benefits of “benchmarking”. A group of 130 professional federal employees began the week with enlighten presentations by the Kansas City Mayor and Chamber of Commerce.
The main focus of this week is for the EPP group to be assembled into 15 teams and visit 15 leading companies in the Kansas City area and gain insight into their best practices.
Today, the EPP Team “ECentric” was able to visit Bayer Animal Health, LLC. in Shawnee, KS and recieved a tour of the facility by the Director of Communications, Bob Walker.
Insights from the Visit-
– Bayer Animal Health is one of the leading companies specializing in animal pharmaceuticals
– The KC area companies account for 32% fo total sales in the 19 billion global animal health market
– Bayer Animal Health has collaborated with federal, public, private, and educational companies and institutions to establish an Animal Health Corridor within the greater Kansas and Missouri.
We had a outstanding visit and we each look forward to utilizing the lessons of their best practices within our own Agencies.
