"This book brings together a theoretically interesting and pragmatically useful collection of writings in the area of high speed managment and global business. The role of high-speed management in the survival of corporations provides a refreshing and needed perspective on changing values and conditions in the global marketplace. The authors present a series of fascinating perspectives on the topic of high speed management and organizational communication, with interesting and pertinent case studies of both U. S. and foreign firms." -- Richard J. Dieker, Western Michigan University

High-Speed Management and Organizational Communication in the 1990s provides a unique, systematic, and practical treatment of the role communication plays in the new organizations. It treats organizational integration, coordination, and control as central communication processes and explores their transformation of traditional organizational topics such as leadership, corporate culture, teamwork, and continuous improvement programs.

The central thesis of this analysis is that increasing the speed with which products get to market helps to make an organization more productive, develop better quality products, become more responsive to customer needs, and generate more profits for investors. Why and how this takes place as well as the central role communication plays in the process is treated here in detail.
