From the Back Cover:

In a kaleidoscope, bits of glass are shown in ever-changing symmetrical patterns caused by their reflection from two or more mirrors. Saving the patterns is impossible because any movement disrupts the pattern and forms a new one. Running a business is a bit like a kaleidoscope. Decisions are made, strategies are defined and deployed, and patterns are set. Then something moves the entire system and the process must begin all over again. In an ever-changing world, quality management and its philosophies, tools, and techniques help organization manage their business effectively.

 

The second edition includes the following chapters:

  • Supply Chain Management
  • Lean Principles
  • Benchmarking 

Significant new material focuses on the following:

  • Customers
  • Value Chains
  • Process Improvement
  • Ethics in Business
  • Lean Management
  • Supply Chain Management 

A special feature in each chapter, How do we know it’s working?, provides insights into a real organization’s pursuit of excellence.
