Building upon the principles of W. Edwards Deming - the "father" of the quality movement - this book takes management practice and the next phase of the Quality Revolution into the 21st century. "Fourth Generation Management" is a clear, concise synthesis of the best of current management practice and a host of dynamic prescriptions for the future. The centerpiece of the book is the "Joiner Triangle", which provides readers with a conceptual framework upon which to build a new corporate culture - one that positions companies for growing productivity and profit in the years ahead. Focusing on quality as defined by the customer; a scientific, databased approach to management; and the creation of long-term, team-spirited relationships both internally and externally - the Joiner Triangle is already gaining credence as the management philosophy of tomorrow. Readers will learn why process is more important than short-term results, how to foster a working environment in which all employees feel like winners, a new way of looking at data, processes, and variation, and much more.
