Presenting an introduction to the patterns and anti-patterns of excellence, it includes detailed case studies based on different variations including, structure variations, shared values variations, and staff variations.This book presents various dimensions of business variations that are availablefor any company to explore in its continual quest for opportunities to achieve and sustain excellence. As long as it collectively and effectively covers the various aspects of an operational company, the exact set of the chosen dimensions of variations is immaterial. This book chooses and extends a set inspired originally by In Search of Excellence (as a tribute to its pioneering effort in focusing interest on the challenges of sustaining excellence in enterprise performance), namely, shared values, strategy, structure, stuff, style, staff, skills, systems and sequence.Instead of newer case studies, the book presents the usual and long familiar case studies through the prism of the 'variations' idea to experience the difference of the 'case history' approach presented here.
