Perfect timing! Here I was thinking about the topic of ageism, when my wife suggested that we watch “The Intern.” I was not familiar with the story, but I quickly noted the relevance. The movie is about a 70-year-old (Robert De Niro) intern working at a start-up clothing retailer in Brooklyn. Assigned to a role under the friendly, but overly-busy CEO (Anne Hathaway), De Niro played a highly professional intern with 40-years of executive experience. Due to his noticeably calm and thoughtful demeanor compared to many others in the business, Anne Hathaway’s character eventually decides to reassign her intern because he is too “observant.”

Globalization has shrunk the world in which we live, and broad, international experience has been in increasingly high demand for our manufacturing clients around the world. Never has talent been more mobile, and never has the mobility of talent been more critical for business success. Executives interested in advancement to the pinnacle of their fields need to seek out international opportunities – or at least not shy from them when they present themselves.
Fractional adjustments to strategy and performance can make or break results in manufacturing more so than in almost any other industry. A globally integrated supply chain is the new normal. Here at TRANSEARCH we recognize that with intensified competition from overseas and increasingly demanding investors, there is no room for mediocrity. Logistical costs are rising, wages in overseas labor markets are surging, and intellectual property rights are routinely threatened. Meanwhile, principles of Lean and Six Sigma are transcending the shop floor and being applied in boardroom strategy.
