Press release from the issuing company

Results of 10-year landmark study of Long-Run Growth Leaders will give graphic arts companies insights into achieving long-term growth and profitability. Paramus, NJ, August 7, 2002 — A select group of printers, identified by the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) as Long-Run Growth Leaders, consistently achieve growth and profitability despite profound challenges, including an uncertain economy, ongoing business consolidation, and technological advances that are transforming the industry. A ground-breaking, 10-year study conducted by NAPL’s Printing Economic Research Center (PERC) profiles the techniques and strategies used by these industry leaders to achieve such consistent results.   NAPL President I. Gregg Van Wert and Executive Vice President Joseph Truncale will highlight results of the study, a “Tale of Two Industries,” in an NAPL Executive Briefing 2002: Making Your Business More Competitive Today, at the Williamsburg Marriott, Williamsburg, Va., Monday, September 9, 2002, 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., with an encore presentation at the Heidelberg Demo Center, Kennesaw, Ga., Tuesday, September 10, 2002, 7:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.  “As the economy slowly comes out of recession, it’s more critical than ever to understand and implement proven techniques for profitability,” says Van Wert. “Through NAPL’s research, printers can have access to the time-tested practices that can help them realize the kind of sustained growth that only a handful of companies have achieved until now.”  During the briefing, Truncale will explore with printing executives the dynamics of successful leadership, including: * The four stages of organizational development and growth.  * How organizational culture affects short-term performance and long-term strategy.  * Techniques for improving the organizational culture.
