Succeed by applying the combat-tested principles of one of America's most successful battlefield leaders.
This collection of General Patton's "one liners" shows how business managers can succeed by applying the combat tested principles of one of American's greatest military leaders. General Patton was a professional soldier who spent his life inspiring people to accomplish the seemingly impossible. Now business managers can use his secrets to motivate their employees. The author uses brief quotes from the General to explain their inner philosophy and to obtain greater performance and productivity from employees. The book also presents corresponding references to both W. Edwards Deming and Walter A. Shewhart, two of America's experts on the subject of statistical quality control. This is not surprising when it is realized that fundamental principles of both military leadership and business management are universal.
