  • 3. 02 HARLEY - DAVIDSON, INC. 2009 ANNUAL REPORT 03 GROWTH Harley-Davidson is not only one of the strongest brands in the world, it is also, we believe, a brand with tremendous untapped potential. We have chosen to focus our investments behind the Harley-Davidson brand because we believe it provides a superior means for realizing the substantial long- term opportunities of the global motorcycle industry. CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT We do many things very well at Harley-Davidson. But the reality is that there is tremendous opportunity to do many things even better—in our product development, our business processes and our manufac- turing operations. Continuous improvement is about much more than reducing costs. We are driving out unnecessary steps and complexity and building in greater flexibility and efficiency in a product’s path from design to dealership. It’s how we get better at managing supply and demand, continuously improving quality, and responding faster and more effectively to the needs of our markets and the desires of riders. LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT The third pillar of our strategy is leadership develop- ment, the foundation for our ability to compete and win for decades to come.
