From: Viscount Nuffield / Mensforth Lecture, 15 March 2012, Coventry
12 March 2012 Manufacturing channel
Dr Ralf Speth examines Jaguar-Landroverâ€™s role as a centre for leading design and engineering; a major investor in R&D; a pioneer of new links between business and academia and as a user of next-generation IT systems.
He will look at how manufacturing companies have to prepare for a globalised, ultra-competitive and crisis-hit industrial world and how Britain is setting new standards as a hub for automotive excellence.
