is the single most important and personal theme voiced by
business leaders as they prepare their organizations, their
employees, and themselves to create and sustain a competitive
advantage in the 21st Century. Sustaining a competitive
advantage will only be achieved by demonstrating leadership
in four aligned areas: strategy, operations, culture,
and rewards. Organizations and individuals must now
be prepared to take charge of their own destinies in order
to drive growth rather than to continue to depend on outside
experts expounding cure-all fads. The degree to which an
organization succeeds in implementing its own "leadership
strategy" will determine how well it survives and prospers.
before any leadership strategy can be implemented, an organization
must execute the following four actions:

the residue of failed and unfulfilled change initiatives
that restrict growth.
on the basic foundations of both management and leadership.

above actions define "deeingineering" - the path
towards creating and sustaining organizational growth.
The Corporation presents a clear, simple, and flexible
guide to implementing a leadership strategy for growth.
The book is replete with the success stories of strong,
favorable role models with whom the reader can identify,
as well as case histories that demonstrate "deengineering"
principles in action. The experiences of the authors, and
over twenty contributors, offer unique insider information
that brings home the message of leading growth from
within in a practical, easy-to-follow manner.
