The authors of this book dare to discuss the very real challenges organizations face when implementing change efforts. [This book] examines the planning, implementing, maintaining and renewal that high-performing teams must have if they are to succeed. TQM, PIT, CQI, Self-Directed/Self-Managing/High-Performing Teams - whether the reader has redesigned or reengineered any of these, overcoming barriers is the key. Turning tradition hierarchical organizations into high-performance models is critical to success.
