Jim approaches business from the customer's point of view. He constantly evaluates this viewpoint by asking hard questions and finding the answers. In an increasingly fast-paced world, what bottlenecks and inconveniences do customers experience when dealing with commercial printers like us? What can we do to move up the value chain with our customers, improving on the "quote and hope" method by bringing ideas to the table which help sell jobs? Is there clarity in how we organize ourselves in supporting our customers? Thinking about these issues and how to continuously improve our customers' experience with us is what guides his work.
