Gregory James Aziz stood at the front of the room while the clapping died down. He had just given his celebratory speech on behalf of the company National Steel Car. They had been in business for over 100 years, and this was their centennial celebration. ISO have recognized the growth of the company awarding it the ISO 9001:2008 certification. During this speech, he was able to explain to his customers, sponsors, suppliers, executives, and workers how all this was possible. On top of that, he was able to explain to them why they will last another hundred years in this industry.
It all began when Greg James Aziz became the chief executive officer for the railway company National Steel Car, a subsidiary of National Industries Inc. When he arrived, he realized many things had to change if National Steel Car was going to continue in business.
Greg Aziz knew that the world was changing, and that National Steel Car had rested too long on their laurels; if they wanted to continue competing for another 100 years, then the company had to change.
The main change that National Steel Car had to complete was the switch to become more environmentally friendly. Greg Aziz knew that the Canadian government, as well as the American government, were looking to pass regulations that could truly damage the railway industry. He could either continue hiring lobbyists to fight for his cause or he could prepare for the change in advance. Go Here for related Information.
Greg Aziz called the head of the research and development department and asked to meet with him in his office. As they began discussing the future, Greg Aziz informed them that they needed a car that could travel twice the distance, go 50% faster, produce 50% fewer emissions, and carry more weight. The head of the research and development department laugh at him a said if they could do that they’d be the richest company in the world. Gregory J Aziz smiled and said, “I know.”
Research and development got to work and in three years produced the car that Greg Aziz desired. Greg then ordered that the car be left secret in a plant that nobody but him and research development knew about. They were ordered to create 100 of those railway cars and sit on them until stricter regulations were passed. About one year later both the Canadian and the American governments passed stricter regulations and National Steel Car was able to use their secret car to compete when no one else could.
