Transforming the American Kitchen through Quality, Innovation, and Design (Print Course)

The economic, technological, and societal challenges new businesses face and how these businesses can learn from legacy companies that have survived and succeeded through the decades will be explored. This topic will be viewed, in part, through the lens of a kitchen appliance manufacturer who has played an integral role in moving an age-old industry forward through innovation, craftsmanship, and customer service. The evolution of the kitchen will also be examined, as well as the role innovation has played in transforming the kitchen from a utilitarian, sometimes dysfunctional space into the hub of the home.
