McHale, who served as CEO of Ladish Company, GO/DAN Industries, Trans Pro, and is a former executive vice president of Rockwell International's automotive operations, shares his observations on why some companies fail to achieve adequate results from lean transformations, how to avoid such failures, and the importance of conducting "senior management audits" by personally visiting sites to observe processes and meetings.
