High-Speed Management and Organizational Communication in the 1990s: A Reader

Front Cover
SUNY Press, Jan 1, 1994 - Business & Economics - 310 pages
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.
