AME invites you to register for the upcoming Operational Excellence Networking Dinner. Join your fellow AME members and wider network for dinner to discuss professional topics that matter to you in a small, intimate setting. Attendees benefit from the wisdom of diverse experiences and foster new relationships with industry colleagues.
At this event we welcome guest speaker Peter Ballas, who will share his experience and key take-aways from the 2019 AME International Conference. Sometimes an international perspective is needed, and for a select group of businesses this was gained through attending the Association for Manufacturing Excellence’s (AME) 35th annual international conference. Held in Chicago, from November 4 to 7, representatives of Australian manufacturing business Note Printing Australia were in attendance. AME's international conference is the largest Lean and continuous improvement conference in the world. Through the use of a short presentation and open forum participants will find out what Peter learnt from the 5 day event.
Peter Ballas has strong experience across Continuous Improvement and Operations management. As Head of Business Excellence for Note Printing Australia, he is focused on a clear, quantifiable vision to help align all areas of the business. With many years of Operations leadership, Peter has a unique perspective through his choice to transition into Business Excellence.
Note Printing Australia, a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia, manufactures Australia’s bank notes and passports, as well as for a number of other countries. As Peter Ballas, head of business excellence, described, the business had been on a Lean journey for the past few years. This began when Note Printing Australia had to prepare for the roll out of Australia’s second polymer bank note series, with the new $5 note entering into circulation in 2016.
