Position your organization for the long haul

In this outstanding volume, author Ralph H. Kilmann provides guidelines for promoting lasting, positive change by identifying and showing how to effectively manage the five essential elements of organizational success--culture, learning, team building, strategy structure, and reward systems. Basing his conclusions on first-hand consulting experience with such companies as AT&T, Ford, General Electric, and Xerox, the author clearly demonstrates how this approach can help companies move beyond Band Aid solutions to competitive challenges and initiate changes that aptly support long-term business goals. Includes a wealth of case examples.
