About the Author

Dan McDonnell is Vice President for Operational Excellence at Ingersoll Rand and currently helping them drive a total Enterprise transformation to premier performance, using Operational Excellence, which in part is consisting of Toyota's 3P process, Dan spent 15 years at General Electric in a number of Plant Manager and Manufacturing General Manager roles, ultimately helping their Transportation business drive a major Lean conversion. Prior to General Electric, as VP Manufacturing for Multilin, he championed a significant Lean transformation, and it was there he started to dabble in what he thought was the essence of 3P, in the absence of a lot of public information on the topic. Even the partial application of a full 3P process led to strong gains where it was applied. This continued throughout his GE career, culminating in the learning of, and application of, a total 3P process based on the Toyota Way, under the guidance of the Shingijutsu Corporation. The phenomenal results achieved through these lessons and applications, saw 3P spread at a wildfire pace through General Electric. Dan also learned much of his Operational Excellence knowledge base with 20 years in a variety of volunteer leadership roles within the Association for manufacturing Excellence, and all of the networking opportunities that provided with a myriad of great Lean practitioners. Drew Locher is currently the Managing Director for Change Management Associates. CMA provides Lean Enterprise Consulting and Organizational Development services to industrial and service organizations representing a wide variety of industries including: Healthcare, Transportation, Distribution, Education, Financial Services and Manufacturing. Drew first became involved in the development and delivery of innovative Business Improvement programs while working for General Electric in the 1980s. In 1990, Drew left GE to form CMA. In 2004, Drew co-authored a book titled, The Complete Lean Enterprise - Value Stream Mapping for Administrative and Office Processes. The book won a 2005 Shingo Prize for Manufacturing Excellence in Manufacturing Research. In 2008 he published a book titled, Value Stream Mapping for Lean Development - a How-to Guide for Streamlining Time to Market. This book demonstrates the application of Lean Thinking to the "problem solving" value stream. His third book titled Lean Office and Service Simplified: the Definitive How-to Guide was released in February 2011.
