Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lawler shows how today's top companies are replacing quick-fix, single dimension techniques of reengineering, TQM, and team building with a complete from-the-bottom-up overhaul for total organizational transformation. He identifies six "new logic" principles that guide the overall architecture, design, and management approaches of effective organizations, and offers a look at the foundations upon which the effective organization should be built<-->from how people are paid and careers managed to how work is designed and organizations structured. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
