How to Fix a Factory: Influencing the Direction of Your Company w/ Rob Tracy


Something's not going well, and it's your job to fix it. Where do you start? 

You can't rely on your charm and good looks to make a change happen. Instead, you have to work through proven processes that alleviate distress at companies. 

On this episode of The Manufacturing Executive Show, Rob Tracy, consultant and author of How to Fix a Factory, talked about specific processes that can solve problems at distressed organizations.


Here's what we discussed with Rob:

  • Why Rob wrote How to Fix a Factory and who he wrote it for
  • How value-add reporting can give distinct insight into P&L
  • The 10 core systems that must be operating with reasonable proficiency for the factory as a whole to have good outcomes
