Description

Learn straight from a management consultant and turnaround artist how to create and implement a management control system for any area of any business in any industry and then to manage that area making it leaner, faster and better all the while highlighting your success for the world to see.

We all want to grow in our management careers. The Manager who sits in his/her chair the longest with the most paper on the desk is rarely the one promoted. It's usually the one who takes whatever and whomever is given and makes it BETTER! The one who succeeds where everybody else fails is the manager on the career fast track.

If your successes are invisible, then they might as well not exist. So we'll be creating from scratch a management control system that will measure the performance of your area, show it change and improve over time, document your actions, and turn into not only a management tool, but also a biography of YOUR VALUE to the company.

Your next performance review doesn't have to consist of your boss telling you what (s)he thinks about you and making sorry excuses as to why you aren't getting much of a raise. It can be a tour de force of you walking in and laying hard, empirical evidence of your contributions on the table and illustrating in indisputable terms (i.e. dollar values) why YOU ARE the company's superstar!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course IS the "missing manual" for anybody who is responsible for the work of others. If you are a Supervisor or a Manager (or similar) and want to absolutely skyrocket your career in management, I will teach you how to create and implement a system which drives continuous, meaningful improvements in the operations under you, and illustrates that success in a way that it will be visible to all. The focus of this course is the hands-on application of operations management. As such, if you are not a Supervisor or Manager, you may not be ready for this course.

Mercenary PLC-tamer

My background includes industrial automation and mechanical design. By degree, I'm an MBA, however after a few years on the road full-time as a management consultant, I fell into and in love with engineering.

My PLC / HMI experience includes projects from $10k up to about $40m, primarily within the realm of chemical processing and filtration. I am competent in RSLogix 500, 5000, FactoryTalk, PanelView, Maple Systems, C-More, Productivity 3000 and Arduino.

From a mechanical perspective, I've designed most of the same systems I program. My competencies in this area include full design, 3D modeling and drafting of assembly and fabrication drawings in AutoCAD and / or Inventor. I've designed mobile systems that were built in shipping containers up to one that filled a two-story building.

Before engineering, I developed and implemented CI (Continuous Improvement) management systems in companies across America in various industries to include a military finance organization, a printing company, a mortgage bank, a candy factory (my personal favorite), a nuclear products manufacturer, a major producer of coiled aluminum and several more.

Apart from things professional, I'm heavy into RC (heli, planes, drones, buggies and rally cars) and I also dedicate time to studying and teaching the Scriptures on my own websites (vanityandlies / vanidadymentiras).
