About The Book

This book is written because we do not believe that failure is inevitable. Indeed, with the vigorous application of Productivity Techniques and Concepts described in this book, any individual with the will to do so can face up to any competition. More important than those techniques is the attitude of mind, not just of managers and workers, but primarily presidents, chairmen, and directors. Only deep and sustained commitment at these level will give a hope that the budding managers absorb the best and in turn provide the same to the society.

All examples that appear in this book reflect the true experiences of active managers.
