Managers must focus, as does nature, on minute particulars. Their job is to cultivate and nurture conditions that bond company talents and customer needs in a profitable union, not to drive work with counter-productive financial targets. Instead of the destructive pursuit of 'management by results', managing by means, as this book shows, can enable a company to profit beyond measure in a sustainable way.
Profit Beyond Measure draws on the application of new knowledge to business, made possible by observing companies which emulate the way natural systems work, such as Toyota and Scania.
There are fascinating and useful lessons and steps for top executives and senior managers working in many different areas: marketing, design, production, logistics, human relations, finance, and information technology. The book's message is also vital for executives and managers in non-business organizations, in government and in education and will interest anyone involved in organizational learning.
