It is looking more and more like the 2011 National Football League schedule is in jeopardy as the lock-out continues with no end in sight.  An article in Advertising Age describes how some major consumer packaged goods manufacturers are moving ahead in spite of the lock-out threat.  Companies like Mars, PepsiCo and Proctor and Gamble have spent millions of dollars yet are faced with the real possibility of a shortened football season.

How will the lock-out effect these major companies?  Will a lock-out affect your buying habits this fall? How would a lock-out affect your business?

While the primary focus of this blog is leadership in Lean manufacturing, I’ve launched a Facebook page to discuss broader manufacturing issues as well as the food and beverage industry.   You are invited to discuss the ramifications of the NFL lock-out and other issues at this Facebook page.
