About "Manufacturing Mastery"

"This book should be read by every leader who is interested in building an enduring business over merely maximizing current revenues. Morgan provides a set of guiding principles and provocative thinking that is valuable to that process. While written for leaders of closely-held manufacturing companies, its ideas provide amazing insights to leaders of all businesses."-- Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers 50, #1 Executive Coach and only two-time #1 Leadership Thinker in the world

"My family company is celebrating its 100th year. The world a century ago was very different than it is today and to endure and thrive we had to adjust and change over time. The need to, and the how to, evolve a business is not always intuitive – but it is necessary to withstand the test of time. Rebecca Morgan has brought years of hands-on experience together into a resource that breaks down the iterative process into manageable and logical steps so it is not necessary to rely on intuition."-- Jodi L Berg, PhD, President and CEO, Vitamix Corporation

"A realistic book – I couldn’t stop reading. It cuts to the heart to explain why manufacturers need to ask the question "how" constant evolution of social, physiological, and political landscape could shape their market dominance or spell doom if largely ignored. It explains how short-term profit maximization mindset could largely undermine the arena of social dynamics and human relationship thereby leading to disenfranchising the organizations core vision, mission, and values forever. If you want to stay relevant, then read this book."-- Anand Raj Singh, Global Leader eCommerce Supply Chain, Royal Philips N.V.
