B. Michael Aucoin
If you are looking for a lively, down-to-earth experience in the journey to innovative engineering management, this is definitely the book for you. The author’s 20-plus year perspective indicates that, while most engineers will spend the majority of their careers as managers, most are dissatisfied with the transition. Much of this frustration is the result of lack of preparation and training. This book gives you a solid grounding in the critical attitudes and principles needed for success. The book teaches you how to internalize the attitudes and master the associated skills needed to excel in, and be satisfied with your transition to management. Learn how to communicate more effectively and improve relationships with your colleagues. Realize an improved use of your time, resulting primarily from learning and practicing a number of "soft" skills which flow from developing the necessary attitudes for management. Use your newly acquired skills to solve immediate problems.

"Moving Forward Faster" reveals the deep secrets of Lean management. This provocative and insightful book clearly explains why Lean management, despite its overwhelming advantages over conventional management, has yet to become ubiquitous in organizations.

It will challenge, annoy, frighten, enlighten, frustrate, educate, and enliven readers. Readers will gain a clear picture of how remarkably different Lean leaders’ minds are compared to conventional leaders’ minds. The differences range from great to small and reflect an overall way of thinking that completely upends the norm - for the customer, and for the better.

"Real Lean" (Volume 4) shows how Lean management is itself a craft that can only be learned as any other craftsman would learn their trade. This unique perspective creates a much clearer impression of what executives need to do in order to become Lean leaders. Their learning must be much deeper than they might have imagined, but the result will be much better than they would have expected. As with prior Volumes of Real Lean , Volume Four emphasizes Lean as a management system and the “Respect for People” principle, because both are so often missing from the practice of Lean management. Topics Covered Include: • Ten Thousand Hours • Learn Lean When Times Are Good • Learning to Think • Let's Stop Making the Same Mistake • Don't Aim Low • The Eighth Waste • The Other Information System • One Step Forward, Eleven Back • The Ethical Management System • Policies for Learning • Eleven Questions • Emiliani's Rules

James E. Harbour
Factory Man is about James Harbour and the epic struggle of the U.S. auto industry to catch up to Japan in quality and productivity. Harbour is a former manufacturing executive who, partly by chance, became the first U.S. expert to study Toyota's operations in Japan. Harbour's consulting firm, Harbour & Associates has gained worldwide recognition for its annual public studies of factory productivity. The Harbour Report is the essential annual scorecard of who is winning the productivity race in the U.S. In 1981, Harbour reported that Toyota could offer a small car for sale in the U.S. at a production cost of $1,500-$1,700 less than the Detroit automakers at that time, a cost advantage of about 30 percent. The impact on Detroit was atomic, and launched the painful, historic effort by the Big Three to catch up, which continues today. James Harbour's story, blunt and accessible, includes a detailed description of how Detroit went astray, beginning right after World War II.

This book tells the improbable stories of Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering and the iFoundry incubator at the University of Illinois. That either one survived is story enough, but what they found out together changes the course of education transformation forever: • How trust is key to unleashing young, courageous engineers. • How engineers need to move from a narrow technical education to one that actively engages six minds. • How emotion and culture-not content, curriculum & pedagogy-are the crucial elements of change. • How all stakeholders can collaborate to disrupt the status quo. A Whole New Engineer is a book that seriously looks at the coming revolution in engineering.

The years following the Second World War saw Britain in the grip of shortages, rationing and recession. For those wanting a high-performance car there was little choice - either buy a pre-war model, or build your own. This led to the conversion of the most unlikely vehicles into genuine sports cars, and a whole industry grew up using the newly-developed fiberglass material to facilitate conversions. Operating from a tiny back-street woolen mill, Rochdale Motor Panels became a market leader, and made it possible to construct genuine 100mph+ vehicles at a fraction of market prices. The late 1950s were a boom time, and by 1960 Rochdale was ready for a huge leap forward. The exquisite Lotus Elite had proved it was possible to use the material for structural purposes: Rochdale cleverly avoided all the problems faced by that vehicle in their breathtakingly simple Olympic design.

Have you ever thought that the design, development and manufacturing process was overburdened with irrelevant procedures and at the same time missing important features? If so, Commonsense Engineering: Simple, Effective Practices for Engineering and Quality Control is the title you have been looking for! It summarizes the 45 years of experience of the author, Gary Casey, PE, during which he has come to just those conclusions. According to Casey, what is missing is a good dose of common sense, and this book gives a number of examples of how to use common sense in the product development and manufacturing processes. It isn’t all inclusive, but instead is intended to spark the imagination of the reader so he/she, too, can apply common-sense principles to engineering, manufacturing and quality processes in his or her own career.

By the early 1960s, the Ford Motor Company, built to bring automobile transportation to the masses, was falling behind. Young Henry Ford II, who had taken the reins of his grandfather’s company with little business experience to speak of, knew he had to do something to shake things up. Baby boomers were taking to the road in droves, looking for speed not safety, style not comfort. Meanwhile, Enzo Ferrari, whose cars epitomized style, lorded it over the European racing scene. He crafted beautiful sports cars, "science fiction on wheels," but was also called "the Assassin" because so many drivers perished while racing them. Go Like Hell tells the remarkable story of how Henry Ford II, with the help of a young visionary named Lee Iacocca and a former racing champion turned engineer, Carroll Shelby, concocted a scheme to reinvent the Ford company. They would enter the high-stakes world of European car racing, where an adventurous few threw safety and sanity to the wind.

Jerry Burton
The name Zora Arkus-Duntov has long been inextricably linked with the Corvette in the minds of automotive historians and enthusiasts. But the story of Zora Arkus-Duntov runs far deeper than his twenty plus years of professional involvement as both Corvette's primary advocate within General Motors and as the fiberglass sports car's first chief engineer. Author Jerry Burton, founding editor and current editorial director of Corvette Quarterly, has written the only authorized biography of Zora Arkus-Duntov. In telling the complete story of this complex and fascinating man, Burton takes the reader from Zora's roots in revolutionary Russia to his relentless pursuit of the American dream amidst the backdrop of New York and Detroit during the height of America's lover affair with the automobile.
