Reengineering the corporation : a manifesto for business revolution by Michael Hammer( Book )

Beyond reengineering : how the process-centered organization is changing our work and our lives by Michael Hammer( Book )
44 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,566 libraries worldwide
"In Beyond Reengineering, Hammer offers powerful insights into the consequences of the reengineering revolution and how they are changing our work and our lives." "To succeed - or even to survive - in today's global economy, companies must refocus and reorganize themselves around their processes: the end-to-end sequences of tasks that create customer value. This change, so easily described, in fact marks the end of the Industrial Revolution and of the organizations that were designed for it. The process-centered organization is a complete break with the past. It means the end of narrow jobs, rigid hierarchies, supervisory management, traditional career paths, and feudal cultures. It ushers in a world of professionals and coaches, process owners and results-based pay, boundaryless organizations, and an institutionalized capacity for change. In this groundbreaking work, Hammer mines the experiences of individuals and organizations that have already made this transition to offer a compelling vision of an imminent future." "Beyond Reengineering provides more than a preview of tomorrow's businesses. It also offers an understanding of what we must all do to prepare ourselves and our children for an economy in which all the familiar rules have been broken. It is required reading for executives and frontline workers, for students and investors, for everyone who wants to be prepared for the new world that is at our doorstep."--Jacket

Faster, cheaper, better : the 9 levers for transforming how work gets done by Michael Hammer( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 401 libraries worldwide
A bold and revolutionary thinker's legacy for how business can meet the greatest economic challenge in decades... It's no secret: everyone knows that the way most companies do things is screwed up. Surprisingly, though, herein lays the biggest opportunity for improving growth and profitability in a world in which consumers are tapped out and competition is coming from the devastating combination of low-wage countries with high skills. For more than a decade, following his landmark Reengineering the Corporation, Michael Hammer did "deep dives" into the processes of companies in every imaginable business'from oil refineries to software developers, factories, retailers, and hospitals'to understand the nuts and bolts of how they do their work, and then to advise them how to do it differently to become faster, cheaper, better. The results were the right product, at the right time, with the right price and quality'businesses that not only ate the competitions' lunch but their breakfast and dinner, too. The research and passion Dr. Hammer brought to this book have been ably carried on, following his tragic and unexpected death in 2008, by his colleague, Lisa Hershman, now the CEO of Hammer and Company. Looking at a company's operations not in terms of piecemeal fragments of work performed in a slew of isolated functional departments but as large-scale holistic work units transformed many companies, enabling them to meet the unique challenges of our time. The late DR. MICHaeL HAMMER was the coauthor of Reengineering the Corporation and the author of The Agenda. LISA W. HERSHMAN is the CEO of Hammer and Company. From the Hardcover edition

"Reengineering--the radical redesign of a company's processes, organization, and culture--is the most important topic in business circles today.

"While suppliers once dominated their customers because the latter were competing for scarce goods, now, with the late 20th-century's increase in production capacity, "sellers have become supplicants for scarce buyers." In his fourth book, Hammer (Reengineering the Corporation) heralds the arrival of the new "customer economy," exhorting corporations everywhere to prepare for it by implementing his agenda"--Publisher's Weekly

A new grammatical transformation into deterministic top-down form by Michael Hammer( Book )
2 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Although deterministic top-down parsing is an attractive parsing technique, the grammars to which it is applicable (the LL(k) grammars) are but a small subset of the LR(k) grammars, those that can be parsed deterministically bottom-up. In this thesis, the problem of transforming LR(k) grammars into equivalent LL(k) grammars is studied. A new transformation procedure is devised which is more powerful than currently available techniques and which preserves the compiling ability of the grammar. (Author)
