  • Leading a project meeting with leaders across the company
  • Researching new market opportunities
  • Managing distribution operations
  • Implementing a new process you've developed
  • Contributing to one of our learning communities by developing and sharing best practices
  • Visiting a customer site to gather feedback on our service and products
