Prepare yourself for the future-of business publishing!

McGraw-Hill teams up with Strategy + Business magazine and Booz Allen Hamilton to create today's hottest guides for tomorrow's highest profits. It's not enough to stay on top of the latest trends. Successful companies need to think big, think smart, think fast, and think ahead-to cash in on the future. That's why McGraw-Hill asked two of today's top thought-makers on business strategy to create The Future of Business series.

Boldly conceived, brilliantly written, and beautifully packaged, each subject-specific guide combines the up-to-the-minute research of Strategy + Business magazine with the global consulting expertise of Booz Allen Hamilton. You'll find all the latest, greatest success strategies at their fingertips, from actual case studies, industry secrets, and late-breaking stats to essential lists of tips, techniques, and takeaways. Whether the subject is marketing, production, sales, or mergers and acquisitions, the future is here-and profitable-in these future bestsellers.

Manufacturing is once again at the top of corporate agendas in the U.S. and Europe. Make or Break examines the flaws of Lean and Six Sigma, and demonstrates how businesses can revolutionize their manufacturing practices to create growth, transform plant operations, and heal fragmented supply chains.

“This book lays down a challenge for manufacturers: Rethink your approach, make manufacturing a priority, or settle into mediocrity.”JACK DENNIS, chief financial officer and chief administrative officer, Luxottica Retail Group

Make or Break goes beyond Lean and footprint optimization. This is the book to read before starting to reinvent your next-generation manufacturing.”THIERRY CHICHE, vice president of manufacturing, Michelin Europe

“I loved the extremely wide scope of Make or Break. It offers a wealth of concrete anecdotes, combining a socio-economic perspective with sound operational science. Its a concise, easy-to-read guide that people in all aspects of manufacturing will find illuminating and instructive.”WALLACE HOPP, co-author of Factory Physics, Herrick Professor of Manufacturing; The University of Michigan

Synopsis:

Break the manufacturing mold--and make new paths to phenomenal growth

In a world of emerging markets, changing work forces, and accelerating innovation, manufacturing is once again a key corporate issue. Manufacturing expertise is a strategic competitive advantage, distinguishing winning companies (like Procter and Gamble, Lego, Toyota, Zara, and Tata) from those that have let their capabilities languish. It may not be easy to take back control of production, target sources for scarce (and environmentally sustainable) materials, and cultivate a motivated, talented labor force. But there are ways to do it; and successful companies will need to learn how.

The thought leaders at Booz and Company and strategy+business magazine have collaborated to create an up-to-the-minute exploration of a new era in manufacturing and the requisite strategies for success. Chock full of profiles of the best manufacturing innovations in every business sector from pharmaceuticals to autos to consumer products, and revealing the most effective manufacturing innovations and strategies, Make or Break introduces you to the forces reshaping the industry. The secrets are in this book, including how to meet such interrelated challenges as:

  • Labor relationships and modernization
  • Material shortages
  • Career development of your workforce
  • Expansion of variety
  • Competition on a global scale
  • Complexity solution
  • Environmental issues
  • Integration of resilience into your strategy

Based on leading-edge research, Make or Break is a book for leaders of the manufacturing function, but it is also for any corporate executive who wants to lead his or her industry-and for students and researchers seeking to understand why making products will, once again, be seen as the most vital skill set for a vibrant economy.
