At Zebra, we talk a lot about how our customers can improve their operational execution. We share best practices solutions that supply chain organizations, healthcare providers, utilities, public safety professionals, governments and others can apply to improve efficiency and safety. We look at how processes can be refined to speed up task completion as business demands grow (and labor resources do not). We recommend ways to increase accountability. And we do all of this so they can better serve their customers.

However, the reason we’re even in a position to serve as such trusted advisors is because we practice what we preach.

If something within Zebra isn’t working – if a workflow is not serving the company, its partners or its customers – it is prioritized for change. Though sometimes a heavy lift, this commitment to constant process improvement isn’t viewed as a burden. It’s an opportunity. At least that’s how Zebra Chief Financial Officer, Nate Winters, sees it.

As he noted after stepping into the leadership role earlier this year…
