Teams and the Graphic Arts Service Provider
For today's best graphics arts companies, client-focused teams aren't just the "buzzword du jour" -- and there's nothing soft-hearted about them. Rather, they are the most rational approach to competing in an increasingly complex, competitive, technology-intensive marketplace. In this book, a leading consultant on graphics arts workflow and management shows exactly how the best companies in this industry make teams work. Learn how to evolve away from a traditional "departmental" structure, building multi-disciplinary groups that gradually assume responsibility for manufacturing, process design, scheduling, planning, even client contact. Discover how to build the communications and meeting skills -- and the trust -- that are crucial to success. Learn how to collect the profitability and productivity data you need to truly evaluate where you stand and where you want to go. Master the arts of coordinating self-directed teams without micromanaging them. Understand how team-focused organizations manage output, proofing, plating, preflighting, estimating, pressroom and bindery work, logistics, and sales. Replete with detailed checklists, practical personnel management solutions, and real-world case studies, Gary Poyssick's Teams & the Graphics Arts Service Provider is your blueprint for graphics arts competitiveness in the 21st century.
