News & Opinion: 100 Best: Jack interviews Jim Champy, co-author of Reengineering the Corporation

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:42 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Michael Hammer and James Champy's Reengineering the Corporation addresses the issue of reinventing and reinvigorating a company in ways different than the typical route of downsizing and other similar practices. Hammer and Michael are "systems thinkers" and crafted an important book about how to analyze systems within business and take profound and efficient actions to make improvements. A bestseller upon its release, the book is still hugely popular today, and easily landed a spot in Jack and Todd's 100 Best.
