Rachel Biblow

Partner, Strategic Consulting

Transformation is about the unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and recognition of the critical interdependencies of safety, quality and experience, which rely on a highly engaged workforce. Organizations committed to transformation understand and embrace these interdependencies and recognize the key to achieving improvement is a convergence of leadership and deliberate actions: every day, every interaction, every touch point. This is a true team sport.
