Item description for It's Broken, Let's Fix It by Gerard De Beuckelaer...

We used to have this saying: "If it ain't broken, don't fix it." It was a powerful piece of wisdom. But then, the re-engineering fashion emerged and that changed everything.This book describes the behavior of the "creature" enterprise as it evolves in an increasingly complex universe. What is this elusive creature really like? Are we able to thoroughly understand its survival and reproduction mechanisms?The book offers a rather merciless analysis of the way things really work. It does so from a human perspective, as we, the people, are at the same time the perpetrators and the victims in the corporate game. The objective is not to indoctrinate or even convince, but to stimulate thought: Let's try to understand things, and then find ways to improve them, without breaking more than we already have.

Reviews - What do customers think about It's Broken, Let's Fix It?

A fascinating view of the "auto-pilot" of society.  Mar 7, 2004
This book is a very different, lively, and believable analysis of what is going on in corporations and society.

It is also very entertaining, written in a conversational tone with just a tiny hint of occasional European syntax that brings fond memories of long philosophical conversations over coffee. And moderate, looking at the whole picture -- stockholders, executives, middle managers, workers, customers, Wall Street analyts.

However, it does not offer solutions that look realistic -- one of them is better laws, which is quite impossible by the arguments presented in the book! I give it 4.5 stars, really, and if the solutions were workable, it'd be 10.

Folks who love the "Wackadamia" music CD by "Dr. Jane" will love this book.
