The Global Manufacturer

Memories of the 2011 IW Hall of Fame Class

IndustryWeek has just announced our 2011 Manufacturing Hall of Fame class. Some of them are household names such as Ford's Alan Mulally and Intel's Gordon Moore. Others are less well-known but no less distinguished. As with our previous two classes of inductees, they are individually and collectively a fascinating group.

I've only met one of the new inductees - John Shook, a lean guru who spoke at IndustryWeek's Best Plants Conference. Do you (or did you) work with any of our 2011 inductees? How do you see their contributions to their organizations and to the manufacturing field? What do you think their legacies will be? i'm looking forward to reading your recollections and thoughts here.
