Front Cover
Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1997 - Industrial management - 272 pages
We have all seen companies spend years -- and millions of dollars -- on training and restructuring programs, only to watch the benefits evaporate almost immediately. Why do things start sliding backwards even before the last bill from the consultant has been paid? And how can you create change that lasts in your company?

Rob Lebow and William Simon provide the answer -- in Lebow's patented Shared Values Process. Shared Values is a powerful management approach based on research with more than 17 million employees in companies around the world, and already implemented in more than 500 manufacturing, retail, and service businesses. Read why it works, diagnose your own company with Lebow's Corporate Values Test, and learn how to put Shared Values into action with this compelling common sense guide.
