Overview

From reengineering to Total Quality Management to Quality Function Deployment, there's an endless array of prepackaged programs and management mantras purported to launch companies to "world class" status. Unfortunately, all too many companies blindly sign up for these "cures" without a clear understanding of what they can and can't do. As a result, what could be good medicine can lead to unpleasant side effects - including wanton waste of corporate resources and loss of employee motivationor, even worse, may land your company in intensive care. Fad Surfing in the Boardroom strips the hard-sell promises off the fads and shows how to focus on the real problems to be solved and the core requirements for finding effective solutions. No one management tool can provide quick and easy answers for all woes but, when used well, each can create good results. Written for those who call the management meetings, as well as for those who attend them, this book takes an intelligent and witty look at which tools can work for your company, which can't and why, as well as what managers can do to improve the odds for success.
