American Manufacturing 2.0: What Went Wrong and How to Make it Right

"For nearly two decades, America's industrial manufacturing sector has been in decline, and as a result, the nation's prosperity and strength is at risk. Meanwhile, China's manufacturing capabilities and competence continue to grow, threatening to overtake America as the world's most powerful and prosperous nation. Drawing on straightforward principles that can effectively be applied to a broad spectrum of manufacturing companies, `' by Steven L. Blue, taps his leadership skills and proven processes honed over his career of growing companies - and saving them - to offer readers an inspiring vision for revitalizing the entire manufacturing sector," said a spokesperson.

Using case studies and examples from his own experiences, both as CEO of Miller Ingenuity, a global supplier of mission-critical components in the transportation industry, and in other roles earlier in his career, Blue organizes his lessons in leadership, strategy and change management into The 7 Values of Ingenuity: innovation, excellence, commitment, community, teamwork, respect and integrity. American Manufacturing 2.0 explains how this highly integrated system of operating values can be implemented to turn around a company (if needed) or to propel it to growth.

"American Manufacturing 2.0 lays out a road map for a renewal of this vital industry," said Blue. "I believe there is no reason why we should accept our current state of affairs. To think of a resurgence of manufacturing in America is not science fiction. It is reality, and this book will show you how and where it is happening today and how it can grow stronger in the future."

A spokesperson explained, "American Manufacturing 2.0:

  • Presents readers with specific, actionable and experience-based advice on how to propel a company into a global powerhouse
  • Teaches the importance of the human factor and how to harness it for peak performance
  • Reveals the secrets to building a high performance culture by design - not by default
  • Uses tried and true examples from Blue's real-world experience in generating turnaround and growth successes
  • Offers advice on customer service, including how not to lose customers while `explosive growth' occurs."

American Manufacturing 2.0 is available from Amazon and most major booksellers.
