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.
