Library Journal - Library Journal
This is Miller's theoretical look at how success has caused corporation failures. Miller, a Canadian professor and coauthor with Manfred de Vries of The Neu rotic Organization (Jossey-Bass, 1984) and Unstable at the Top (NAL, 1987), researched over 100 corporations to discover how success imperils an organization through the momentum it creates. He has invented new terminology to describe the different corporations he studied, calling them Craftsmen, Salesmen, Builders, and Pioneers. Included in this little volume are extensive notes, tables, and an index, which makes it useful to business students, instructors, and researchers. For larger academic collections.-- Susan Awe, Natrona Cty. P.L., Casper, Wy.
