"Manufacturing is where the buck stops"- if there is one man who, more than anyone else, has ensured that the UK has a manufacturing centre for the buck to stop at, it's the outspoken Professor Kumar Bhattacharyya.' The Observer 'Andrew Lorenz has a good knowledge of his subject matter, and his easy style has produced a captivating book. We should be grateful to him for singing the praises of this unsung guru.' Management Today'The prime ministers and presidents who have sought Bhattacharyya's advice, not to mention the 5,000 or so corporate customers who have benefited from this unique mix of academic expertise and entrepreneurship, will consider this study to be long overdue.' Sunday Times, Business Book of the Week Bhattacharyya is a unique academic entrepreneur: Today, Warwick Manufacturing Group, the unit inside Warwick University that he founded in 1979, is Britain's answer to MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology). WMG has annual revenues of -80m, educates more than 5,000 post-graduates and managers a year through its worldwide network of operations, and has won international renown with its philosophy of breaking down the barriers between academia and industry. For more than 20 years, Professor Kumar Bhattacharyya has been the most influential but least well-known manufacturing industry expert in Britain. He has advised two Prime Ministers - Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair - and a succession of senior government officials on matters ranging from the privatisation of British Steel to the future of the car industry. This book explores, for the first time, the story of Bhattacharyya's creation, the philosophy and ethos that underpins it, and the case histories that highlight its most crucial elements.
