Gung Ho! Turn On the People in Any Organization (9780688154288): Ken Blanchard: Books. In these days where the computer reigns supreme and management thought is presented in complicated models, there is something refreshing about management principles taught by allegory. Blanchard (The One Minute Manager, LJ 3/1/84), along with coauthor Bowles (Raving Fans, Morrow, 1993) recounts an organizational turnaround based on three Native American lessons. In The Spirit of the Squirrel, the lesson is one of the power of worthwhile work. In The Way of the Beaver, the lesson is accomplished through empowerment. In The Gift of the Goose, the lesson is the exponential factor of motivation. The problem inherent in the principles in this work, or any change program from weight-loss diets on up, is that there needs to be constant focus; success, if it is not continually renewed, is dissipated over time. Although new, this work makes a good preface and companion to Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox's The Goal (North River, 1992. 2d ed.).?Steven Silkunas, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority, PhiladelphiaCopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
