Format: Hardcover
The book provides an excellence descriptions of many approaches to organizational improvements by other theorists.
The book offers a futuristic view of organizational excellence and the means and strategies to achieve this excellence. The book is well-organized, from theory to strategies to the "how-to". It has a good mix of being academic and being practical.
There are many cases cited in the book and these cases are well placed such that readers are not bored with the theoretical portions.
My favorite line of the book is in Chapter 3, where the authors summarized the state of excellence being one that shouldn't "do more of the same and better", but one that will do things "in a completely different way and from a different perspective". There have been so many cases that organizations merely use the model of doing "more with less" or being more efficient and effective, as a motivation for organizational improvements. The book offers a fresh look at the basis of organizational improvements.
