Kat Duggan

Position: Manufacturing Digital Transformation Lead, Dow

My goal has always been making day to day work better for everyone around me. Staying positive, collaborating with under-engaged voices, and exceeding expectations. I have been expanding my skills as a leader and manager, technical trainer, project manager, and look to continue the digital revolution in manufacturing.

Gaining trust and building teams has always been about making lofty goals personal. Reducing alarms was not about the metric, but about the distractions alarms can bring the production team. Decreasing offgrade isn't about the business goals, but about saving material from being reprocessed or retreated or thrown out. It's about sustainability and water reduction, and limiting the extra product movements for the operators in filtration.
I don't succeed until everyone else is winning with me.
