Jim worked for thirty years with a fortune 100 manufacturing business.  He started as an engineer but spent most of his career providing leadership in various production operations.  His last position was as a change manager in a unionized plant of 4,000 employees.  Preparing him for this assignment he went through formal training which included studying directly with Dr. Deming and Dr. Juran and formal study programs with great companies in both Japan and the US.  After applying these philosophies, tools, techniques and methodologies he developed a passion for using them to assist groups with managing change to manifest their dreams of the future.

After he retired he established his consulting business and started working as a change management consultant.  He has consulted for twenty years with organizations of all sizes, types and in cultures of multiple countries.  He works at all levels of the organizations from board of directors to groups of hourly employees on the production floor. 

He always looks forward to working with organizations that are anxious to proactively manage change which will make for a better future for all.
