Promises and Perils of Three Organisational Innovations.
Miller, Richard I.; Miller, Peggy M.
Higher Education Review, v30 n2 p23-28 Spr 1998
Examines complexities and offers generic criticisms of three current approaches to innovation (total quality management, restructuring, reengineering). Notes difficulties and discusses specific problems related to: interrelatedness of planning, doing and evaluating; excessive time demands and paperwork; lack of balance between process and product; lack of coordination between innovation and organizational procedures; and selling of innovations with euphemistic rhetoric.
