Rezensionen
'...this book is the Rosetta stone for serious business practitioners. It bridges the superficial journalism on the techniques of our time (e.g. Kaizen, Total Quality Management, cross-functional teams, empowerment, business re-engineering) and the foundational philosophy and operating systems that translate these ideas into action. The author's grounded experience radiates throughout the book and sets it apart from more cursory treatments of consultants and academics.' - Richard T. Pascale

'...this remarkable book dispels the myths, answers the critics and points the way forward - towards the Ascendant Organisation. Wise practical advice from one who has done it - don't miss it.' - Daniel T. Jones

'...Wickens provides both theoretical and eminently practical guidance to achieving total quality management - the internal ascendancy which creates long-term external success. - Robert Heller
