Abstract:

Publisher Fact Sheet

In the vein of business bestsellers like Blur & Cluetrain Manifesto, this book by New York/London-based consultant Tom DeMarco is a smart & hip new management book for keeping your company ready to evolve & grow. A business idea that turns the table on current management strategies: rather than paring down employee ranks to the bare minimum, DeMarco argues corporations need to build in slack, thus allowing for greater flexibility & growth & maneuverability during times of change.
