What Works: A Decade of Change at Champion International

    By Richard E Ault, Richard Walton, Mark Childers, Ault, Childers M, Walton R, Mark V Childers (Joint author), Richard E Walton (Joint author)
Between 1986 and 1997, Champion International, one of America's oldest and largest industrial companies, turned itself from an underachieving, tradition-bound organization into a visionary competitor. Part inspiration and part instruction, Champion's Cinderella story of perseverance and triumph - told by the leaders who helped plan and participated in the transformation - contains lessons for every manager facing the challenge of change.


"Take a fascinating, decade-long journey to witness the remarkable transformation of a mediocre company into a team-based top competitor. Your guides are a trio of participant/observers, all key players in achieving this systemic change of classic proportions." --Jerome M. Rosow, president, Work in America Institute, Inc.
"What Works makes a very important contribution by challenging conventional wisdom. The story of Champion International's decade of change illustrates that a fundamental and permanent transformation in corporate culture and performance depAnds on an evolutionary, bottoms-up organizational learning process led by many managers at all levels." --Michael Beer, Cahners-Rabb Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Univesity
"Anyone in a leadership position today, union or management, should read this book. It tells the important story of how labor/management partnerships can make a difference and provide workable solutions to complex problems presented by today's global economy." --Boyd Young, international president, United Paperworkers International Union
