Vincent Bozzone is the author of two job shop management books. Speed to Market: How to Cut Lead time and Increase Profits in Job Shops and Custom Manufacturing Environments (1995), and Speed to Market: Lean Manufacturing for Job Shops (2001). These books were the result of Vince’s recognizing the lack of awareness about these types of order-driven businesses, as well as the lack of any specific education and training in job shop management. Improvement programs, such as they were, were based on mass production manufacturing operations which bear little resemblance to order-driven job shops. These books provide the foundation for JobShop360 which goes beyond Speed to Market in scope and depth.
Vince has worked as a consultant in manufacturing since 1975. He began to focus exclusively on job shops in the early-nineties. The Speed to Market books and Job Shop 360 are based on work with a number of job shop clients over the last 20+ years here and abroad.
His client-centered engagements have generated millions of dollars in new revenues and earnings for companies as a result of his ability to conceive, plan, and implement solutions for a broad range of strategic and operating problems. He has led or supported more than 1000 consulting engagements in a wide range of industries since 1975. He is an MBA graduate of Columbia University where he was awarded a Samuel Bronfman Fellowship to further the use of systems thinking to improve business decision making.
Prior to that, Vince Graduated from the City College of New York, Baruch School, with a BBA degree cum laude. He has also written several articles for professional journals and business publications, a chapter in the Handbook of Organizational Consultation, and two books on international business. He is a Past President of the Association for the Management of Organization Design (AMOD) He lives in Clarkston, Michigan.
