Quality and Leadership are interdependent conditions for organizational success in the 21st Century. Leadership is the brain and quality is the heart of any organization. Leaders need interconnection of the brain and heart to succeed. Quality growth for an organization is organic growth created by original ideas and effective entrepreneurship by the leaders, rather than growth that comes from a wide variety of financial manipulation, including acquisitions. Who s this book for? This book is aimed at young aspiring future leaders to include MBA candidates and other graduate-level business majors. It is also targeted at niche groups such as the American Society for Quality and the Chartered Quality Institute of London. This book provides guidance for the visionary professionals who will be in a position to lead their organizations in the ever changing global environment in any field by 2025. This book is directed at the minds and hearts of evolving business professionals. Why should I read it? By 2025 leaders will face extremely fluid markets. The speed of change in technology, product life cycles, and ever demanding sophisticated consumers who can compare and buy products on the internet will force organizations to change their strategies to compete and survive. The challenge will be to create a global marketplace through innovation, to manage change at an ever faster rate, and to create value for ever-more sophisticated consumers. If you read this book and apply the concepts in it you will unleash your abilities and capabilities, and whether or not your organization has designated you as a leader, this book will provide you with a road map for how you can have a positive impact on your organization. Why is the future so important? The future is not what will happen; the future is what is happening. The long term is not something that happens someday. It is not a thing to wait for; it is a thing to be achieved living in a very different time. Changes are happening more quickly than our capacity to absorb them. The next generation of leaders will need to think in terms of the future, and not focus on the present, namely the next couple of months. Until the ability to see further into the future is developed, potential leaders will be limited in their migration to higher levels in the organization. Why is leadership emphasized? Decision making is an important part of leadership. Many leaders fail in the decision making process by not adequately understanding the total environment and system. By 2025, the new kind of leadership will be a step-by-step process, and leaders will have to get the first step right otherwise everything that follows will be wrong. There is no universal model for quality leadership; one size does not fit all. The environment is complex and is changing rapidly, and the roles and styles of leadership must be adapted to the circumstances. Where did these ideas come from? The ideas expressed in this book come from combing through published research papers, articles and books from leading experts on leadership and quality; add to that my 40 years of experience in industry and research in Europe and USA. In addition I have served as a faculty member in the graduate programs for Engineering for Professionals (EP) at the Whiting School of Engineering and Johns Hopkins University. How should I read this book? Treat this book as a manual on guiding you in how to achieve and build your future. The chapters on leadership and leadership development are directed at the minds of aspiring executives and professionals, while the chapters on quality techniques are directed at their hearts by explaining that the key to success for the next generation leadership is the undertaking of steps that improve an organization s ability to improve by investing in employee development.
