Summary

Those managing organisations are often criticised for being 'faddish' in their use of new management ideas or innovations, too easily falling into the trap of adopting the latest new idea or concept because it is 'flavour of the month'.

It provides case studies of actual adoption and implementation of the balanced scorecard and programme/project management offices.
