Description

Spanning fifty years, this timeless collection of papers by former Sears, Roebuck and Co. vice president James C. Worthy stresses that high employee morale and worker-management cooperation characterized the corporate structure that made the nonbureaucratic Sears a powerhouse, demonstrating that a large company could be "lean" without layer upon layer of middle management.Worthy's book is of historical interest even as it is relevant to the organizational and behavioral problems that trouble today's practitioners and scholars of management.show more
