Manufacturing's Bane

I visited a factory recently, which is something I love to do. But on this tour I made a very surprising discovery. I found out what it is that is holding American manufacturing back.


The company, by their account, is so busy that they are not taking on new customers. However, I noticed that few of the machines were running and there didn't seem to be much activity anywhere. When I asked about this discrepancy I was told that "we don't operate on testosterone.".

Who knew that has been the problem all along. But testosterone or not, of you want to get orders out the door and serve the customers you do have, you have to keep things moving.

Maybe I'm missing something.
