Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This practical guide for managers demonstrates when, where, and how to implement significant organizational change through teamwork.

This practical hands-on tool kit for managers demonstrates when, where, and how to implement significant organizational change through teamwork. The use of self-managed, cross-functional, benchmarking, and outside linking teams by high performance firms are employed in a case study format.

"This book provides an excellent, concise summary of the major managerial tools available to organizational leaders and managers in adapting to the pressures and crises of a rapidly changing and competitive global market place, and fully meets it objective to serve the training needs of managers in seminars designed around these concepts. There is no other book on high speed management and related managerial concepts which has been produced for the practicing manager." -- Richard J. Dieker, Western Michigan University

"It presents in a concise fashion the philosophical and theoretical level of high-speed management. It then devotes sufficient attention to the operationalization of the high-speed management framework--it operationalizes organizational integration processes (leadership, corporate culture, and teamwork) and coordination processes (self-managed, cross-functional, benchmarking, and outside linking teamwork) in terms of practical, useful communication strategies and tools. In addition, the use of such tools is illustrated by case studies of some of the best run corporations in the world." --Branislav Kovacic, University of Hartford
