The newsletter highlighted a recent IndustryWeek article by Rick Bohan. Bohan noted, “It’s easy to talk about the need for culture change but a lot harder to actually achieve it. Training and education will help, of course, but it’s not nearly enough. The first rule of culture change is: It doesn’t start until somebody does something differently. Culture change doesn’t stick until nearly everybody is doing something differently. So long as everyone is doing today just what they did yesterday, none of the lean tools will be effective over time.”

The newsletter also examined how the CFO position is transforming as industrial businesses are increasingly bringing operations back to the United States. Investor interest in the sector has blossomed alongside the manufacturing renaissance in the U.S. In a survey of U.S. private equity executives by BDO, manufacturing was the industry sector most frequently cited as being the ripest area for new investment in 2014.
