Description

The author of this text counters the assumption that American workers are too independent-minded to be managed in such a way that they can produce world-class products. He argues that the very diversity of the American workforce is a great advantage to US firms, not a handicap. He shows that when they are properly managed and motivated, American workers can bring more commitment, creativity, and high-quality performance to their work than their counterparts in other countries.show more
