Joseph H. Boyett, Author, Jimmie T. Boyett, Author Dutton Books $24.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-525-93782-1
After sweeping layoffs and draconian downsizings, has the reengineering of America's corporations produced a leaner, tougher business environment? According to the Boyetts (Workplace 2000), ``America's workplace revolution... has only just begun.'' The authors assert that formidable changes in American society, including the impact of women and minorities in the workforce and the need for educational and training programs, will compel managers to develop new procedures to cope with economies in flux. The authors also investigate such topics as the impact of technology, the importance of core competencies, cooperation among employees and a sensitivity to products consumers actually want and need. Providing numerous case studies (e.g., Corning, Wal-Mart), this is a useful study of business leadership in a period of change. (Apr.)
