Join Principal of Chaolysti, Pamela Cargill, during PV America's "Beers with Peers" session on Wednesday June 25th from 1PM until 3PM. Ms. Cargill will facilitate the topic, "Best practices roundtable for project and personnel management at your solar company" in keeping with the Lean Thinking theme of her poster presentation. Please join us to discuss best practices (or what hasn't worked for you!) on the management side of running your solar company: from project management and process management to company culture and personnel management.
As the solar industry continues to mature and focus on soft cost reduction, successful solar installers will need to focus on how their company culture, management styles, process management, and project management tools and policies work together to create customer satisfaction and company sustainability. Techniques and tools common in Lean can provide a framework for long-term sustainability of process change focused toward waste reduction and profitability. In our best practices roundtable, we'll discuss some of the common problems and also evaluate some of the solutions being used now, whether management and policy tools and/or software/IT solutions. Join us to take a deep dive into how to manage your solar company for long-term growth and profitability.
