    Offer better compensation.
    Communicate, communicate, communicate
    If you're trying to follow an automotive model, fire/hire leaders at the Lenexa plant.
    Is Quality important to you? Hire more Quality personnel.
    Supplier Quality? What's that?
    Assembly-house...upgrade tooling, equipment, and quit sourcing to China.
    Update the building for goodness sakes.

    Pros

    It is a successful company with decent profit margin and continued growth opportunities over the next couple years. It is a small company which allows you to impact the bottom line.

    Cons

    Since the company is still profitable, it tends to not push for true waste elimination as other manufacturing industries have.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, feedback and development of team members to ensure long term success of the company as this is the area most lacking.
