The Big M Matters blog is the brainchild of Jim Lawton, a proven executive with a passion for the business of manufacturing and the transformative power of data and analytics.

Jim’s inspiration comes from his experience. At HP, he learned that manufacturing is more than raw materials and a production line—that business decisions made long before a product is produced and long after it hits the shelves are where the real innovation happens. From HP, Jim went on to work with start-ups in supply chain management—companies that turn data and analytics into valuable insight critical to the business of manufacturing.

Here’s where you’ll find commentary and perspective on what’s happening where insight meets the business of manufacturing – and how that intersection is driving the kind of innovation that makes manufacturing matter.
