NEW YORK (January 30, 2024) — Tradition Meets Transformation: Leadership Strategies to Revitalize Manufacturing, by Laurie Harbour and Scott Walton, is now available. The book is published with Forbes Books, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes, and is available on Amazon today.
The new work from Harbour Results executives Laurie Harbour and Scott Walton sounds the alarm on the urgent need for North American manufacturing leadership to keep pace with the rapid changes in competition, economics, and technology and push to develop the next generation of manufacturers.
Responding to a looming manufacturing brain drain, Harbour and Walton explore the five key areas impacting manufacturing enterprises—operations, labor, commercial strategies, vision and strategy, and technology—and underscore the need for effective leadership in revolutionizing the industry.
In their effort to infuse their industry with a new generation of capable leaders, Tradition Meets Transformation is a timely call to action, urging transformation, recovery, and the revival of the pioneering spirit that defined North American manufacturing.
“Scott and Laurie capture the essence of adaptability and growth strategies for manufacturing executives in a business landscape that will continue to rapidly change,” said business leader, motivational speaker, veteran, and author Troy Nix. “With the guideposts of years of experience and analysis, this book serves as a valuable compass, provides practical guidance, and illuminates the path to sustainable success in a fast-changing world.”
