Quality Movement and Organization Theory by Robert E. Cole

Book Description

The Quality Movement and Organization Theory is the first comprehensive study of quality management to be linked with the principles of organizational behaviour and analysis. The contributors are at the forefront of assessing new quality approaches, how they work, and the conditions under which they are effective. The book bridges the world of theory and practice, making academics aware of recent developments to improve organizational performance and exploring ways in which these efforts both contribute to and challenge current theories.
