At American Glass Light we renovated and reorganized the factory for Demand Flow and increased output 300%.

What we found out was that Glenn was not only a consultant, but he had also managed manufacturing organizations so he understood the issues faced by manufactures today. He reinforced the training by hands on activities.... we as a management team was learning to think out of the conventional box - move away from existing paradigms, and we began to look a new and better ways of conducting our business. In summary, our management team is better equipped to deal with the increasing cost of doing business. We are learning to move away from conventional thinking to now examining new and different ways to do our business. The training was awesome - an eye opener and I recommend it to anyone who is serious about surviving in the US economy as it is today.
