Are you losing money due to wasted effort and low productivity of your knowledge workers? Is your office inefficiency leading to low worker morale and high workforce turnover? Are you losing customers or irritated due to disorganized office practices? Applying Lean principles to your office operations can solve these problems and create efficient knowledge workers that are a real competitive advantage. Given the success that Lean Manufacturing has shown in cleaning up production processes, why not achieve a Lean Enterprise by driving Lean Office practices into the front office where inefficient procedures, paperwork and bureaucracy in one area can stall the leanest efforts of other operations. Lean is not about cutting staff and resources. Instead, it is about: • Focusing people’s efforts creating value for the customer and eliminating waste. • Speeding up the operation by eliminating idle time created by paperwork and bureaucracy.

The relationship between military leaders and political leaders has always been a complicated one, especially in times of war. When the chips are down, who should run the show -- the politicians or the generals? In Eliot Cohen examines four great democratic war statesmen -- Abraham Lincoln, Georges Clemenceau, Winston Churchill, and David Ben-­Gurion -- to reveal the surprising answer: the politicians. Great states-­men do not turn their wars over to their generals, and then stay out of their way. Great statesmen make better generals of their generals. They question and drive their military men, and at key times they overrule their advice. The generals may think they know how to win, but the statesmen are the ones who see the big picture. Lincoln, Clemenceau, Churchill, and Ben-­Gurion led four very different kinds of democracy, under the most difficult circumstances imaginable. They came from four very different backgrounds -- backwoods lawyer, dueling French doctor, rogue . . .

We live in a vicious, highly competitive workplace environment, and things aren't getting any better. Jobs are few and far between, and people aren't any nicer now than they were when Ghengis Khan ran around in big furs killing people in unfriendly acquisitions. For thousands of years, people have been reading the writings of the deeply wise, but also extremely dead Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, who was perhaps the first to look on the waging of war as a strategic art that could be taught to people who wished to be warlords and other kinds of senior managers. In a nutshell, Sun Tzu taught that readiness is all, that knowledge of oneself and the enemy was the foundation of strength and that those who fight best are those who are prepared and wise enough not to fight at all. Unfortunately, in the current day, this approach is pretty much horse hockey, a fact that has not been recognized by the bloated, tree-­hugging Sun Tzu industry, which churns out mushy-­gushy pseudo-­philosophy for . . .

After each chapter, Quinn challenges you to assess yourself with respect to each practice and to formulate a strategy for personal growth.
