I’m sure we wouldn’t have come out of this session with this type of deliverable had we attempted this on our own. - Zach Hodge, Executive Vice President, Material Handling & Logistics

The Innovation Lab facilitated an innovation process designed to help the HODGE executive team FRAME growth opportunities, CREATE actionable strategies , and develop a 5-year plan to IMPLEMENT their ideas and generate value.

In 3 one-day sessions, the executive team aligned around key objectives and created a set of clear and measurable strategies for the company, including key metrics for ensuring success.
