Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The loss of America's competitive edge is primarily due to the failure to produce quality products. While there have been major economic, social, and technological changes affecting international markets since World War II, American businesses are still functioning under old assumptions. The world's economies are so integrated now that a disturbance in one geographic area has widespread consequences. By showing what countries like Japan have done to stay competitive, the authors present some object lessons. Their call for basic changes in management and organizational strategies should be a required reading for all corporate policy makers. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.M.
