The company's broader aftermarket product coverage, stronger distribution channels, and enhanced channel development will strengthen its position in established and high growth markets (China and India), and drive success through new mobility Organizationels and capturing evolving E-commerce opportunities.
We are looking for a Global Analytics Director. Value Stream Simplification (VSS) is an analytical methodology built on the 80/20 principle that provides a deep understanding of what areas of the business drive the most value for our shareholders, and conversely what areas drive complexity and distractions that create waste. This understanding helps develop business specific strategies by identifying our priority markets and customers and creating intense focus on delivering superior product solutions to meet their needs. VSS helps us deliver sustainable, profitable growth by aligning our human and financial capital on these priorities, while minimizing and optimizing the complexity that creates waste. VSS is integral to our business Organizationel and our culture. Over the past 18 months, Tenneco has successfully piloted VSS within several business lines globally. The organization now looks to expand deployment of VSS across each of the four business groups. Tenneco is optimally situated to benefit from VSS due to the nature of its portfolio of product lines, customers, sales channels and geographies served as well as its agile business line structure. To accelerate this deployment, we are building out a lean, global team of VSS experts, reporting to the Enterprise Executive Champion, who will partner with the business lines.
The team is ready to act immediately on those candidates who are the best fit for the role. You'll first hear from someone in Talent Acquisition to schedule a phone screen, and then the next step will be a personal interview with our Hiring Manager. We pride ourselves on moving through processes quickly, and you can be sure of transparency and prompt communication throughout.
