From the man whom BusinessWeek has called a "founding father" and the "hands-on implementer" of the Quality Movement comes a breakthrough approach to management and leadership

Just as Armand Feigenbaum's pioneering Total Quality Control changed the world's approach to quality and productivity, The Power of Management Capital will also transform the contemporary business landscape.

The Power of Management Capital explains the new business model of "management capital"--what it is and how the deployment of management assets sets pacesetter companies apart from the also-rans and business failures of the past decade.

Armand Feigenbaum and his brother Donald, an executive vice president at General Systems, Inc., provide a definition of the distinct components of management capital--it is the physical assets, the culture, the approach to innovation, the intellectual capital, the human resources, etc.--and then show how the deployment of each of these assets is key to successful growth and profitability.
