H. James Harrington, Ph.D., the visionary International Quality Advisor for Ernst & Young, added Business Process Improvement to today's business lexicon. with over 15 books to his credit and more than 45 years of experience, Dr. Harrington is considered one of the world's Performance Improvement gurus.From Booklist:
A timely, well-written book such as this is needed by the majority of organizations in the mid-1990s. H. James Harrington (with his coauthor) draws on his 40 years of IBM experiences and more-recent Ernst & Young consulting experiences in quality management. Using specific examples from IBM, GM, and others, this volume demonstrates that companies must utilize an array of quality methods to stay competitive; focusing on only one quality method, such as total quality management (TQM), does not lead to effective organizational change. The book's introduction and overview set the stage through a 12-step win-win scenario of total improvement management (TIM) and a stakeholder approach that presents a total business management (TBM) outer circle model that includes five other quality methods. The 15 chapters address specific topics, such as leadership required for change, planning, the environment, customer focus, management participation, team building, individual excellence, suppliers, operational processes, and product processes. Written for middle- and upper-level managers, Total Improvement Management illustrates how to combine the many improvement methods to best use available resources and optimize total performance.
