Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book shows how organizational frame-breaking changes can be used in order for an organization to learn from its own experience and continually improve.

"This book introduces an exciting new concept of management theory that combines several individualized concepts which have been presented in recent years as the basis of management theories by themselves. The value of the blending of these theories is amply demonstrated by a great variety of documentation and illustration which justifies and supports its legitimacy." -- Rowland Baughman, Central Connecticut State University

Winning provides a theory of how and when to use various types of teamwork in a continuous improvement program. These include self-managed, cross-functional, benchmarking, outside linking and breakthrough teams. Also discussed are team leadership, team strategy, and examples of teamwork tools and outcomes. The book teaches how to win through continuous improvement programs.

"The book convincingly makes the case that successful organizations must practice both continuous improvement and organizational frame-breaking--either in a sequence or simultaneously--based on relevant competitive strategies devised by strategic leadership. Moreover, it emphasizes the strategic role of organizational communication.

"The topic concerns issues that are a matter of life or death for business organizations. It goes beyond the media hype on continuous improvement and frame-breaking organizational changes. It proffers a theoretical framework that gives coherence to strategic differences in application of continuous improvement and frame-breaking organizational changes. The topic is relevant to the field of organizational communication, management, and to a dialogue on issues of economic and social policy." -- Branislav Kovacic, University of Hartford
