Do you have a voice in shaping government or corporate policies about any of this? Blown to Bits offers provocative answers to these questions and tells intriguing real-life stories.

Using well known examples and case studies from real companies around the world, he offers a well-balanced look at both services and manufacturing operations. His accessible and engaging writing style makes this books ideally suited to those encountering Operations Management for the first time at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
