The Renaissance of American Steel Lessons for Managers in Competitive Industries by Roger S. Ahlbrandt, Richard J. Fruehan and Frank Giarratani pdf free download. This book is about succeeding in an industry that is experiencing strong competition and technological change. Not so many years ago, fingers were pointed at the American steel industry as a prime example of failure in the face of international competition. So dramatic was the industry’s decline that it: was sometimes seen as symptomatic of larger failure in our economic system. Today, the American steel industry truly has been transformed.

American firms produce quality products in efficient plants, and they are profitable. We set out several years ago to understand this transformation and learn from it. Our intuition was simple enough. If you want to find out what it takes to be competitive in a global economy—if you want to know what management practices actually work—turn to an industry where restructuring has succeeded. Learn about the firms that helped turn that industry around, and seek lessons from their success that generalize broadly.

We believe that readers of this book will find, just as we did, that the generalization carries lessons from steel to industries as far afield as financial services, wholesale and retail trade, utilities, computers, and semiconductors. In the steel industry, two types of firms have been responsible for the transformation: large integrated producers that were tagged as failures in the 1980s but came back strong, and their small insurgent competitors, socalled minimills. We went to both types of firms to learn from their experience. We visited plants, talked to workers and managers, and interviewed the leaders who initiated change and helped make that change successful. Our analysis did not stop there.

We went to steelmakers abroad too. Restructuring in this industry has been worldwide, so it stands to reason that the basis for competitive success should cut across national boundaries. If the insights that we gained on the basis of experience in the United States could be generalized, we reasoned that restructuring here would find a counterpart in Europe and Japan.
