Praise from business leaders for Agile Competitors and Virtual Organizations "This book is right on target! It clearly and concisely depicts the dramatic changes that are taking place in the marketplace. I recommend this book to every company that wants to remain competitive in an agile world." --Jerry Junkins Chairman, President and CEO, Texas Instruments "For managers plunging into the wilds of manufacturing to seek the source of future competitiveness, this is an indispensable handbook.

All the main landmarks are pointed out, leaving plenty of elbow room for exercising your imagination and creativity." --Otis Port "This book provides insightful perspectives on the important elements of this emerging production paradigm. It's must read." --Donald L.
