From the Back Cover:

Over the past eight years, we implemented new decision processes based on the nine principles found in The Smart Organization. The result has been a change in the openness of our decision processes, the evolution of an improved attitude toward learning, and significant value added for GM's shareholders. --Vincent P. Barabba, General Manager, Corporate Strategy and Knowledge Development, General Motors Corporation

This major work describes the practices that permit an organization to derive the most benefit from making quality decisions following the fundamental methodology of the Stanford school of decision analysis.' The Mathesons' book draws on more than 30 years' experience in management consulting and research. Their design for the smart organization' should capture the attention of any smart executive leader. --Ronald A. Howard, Professor and Director, Decisions and Ethics Center, Department of Engineering-Economics Systems and Operations Research, Stanford University

Bayer has used the SDG approach for the last six years, and we have found the process extremely useful. The Smart Organization elucidates both process and methodology, using a clear concept and lively examples from real business situations. --Dirk Suwelack, Ph.D., Head of Strategic Planning, Business Group Pharmaceuticals, Bayer AG, Leverkusen, Germany

With sharply drawn examples from Medieval longbows to space shuttle o-rings, the Mathesons' book enables us to carry home vivid pictures of the path to organizational enlightenment. The fundamental principles they outline were the guide to the re- engineering of drug discovery and development at Eli Lilly and Company. --W. Leigh Thompson, Ph.D., M.D., Retired Chief Scientific Officer, Eli Lilly and Company, and CEO, Profound Quality Resources, Ltd.
