Dirty Rotten Strategies PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dirty Rotten Strategies free pdf People and organizations are perfectly capable of making the most outrageous missteps. But, how does a person, organization, or society know that it is committing an error? And, how can we tell when others are steering us down wrong paths? "Dirty Rotten Strategies" delves into how organizations and interest groups lure us into solving the 'wrong problems' with intricate, but inaccurate, solutions. Authors Ian I. Mitroff and Abraham Silvers argue that we can never be sure if we have set our sights on the wrong problem, but there are definite signals that can alert us to this possibility. While explaining how to detect and avoid dirty rotten strategies, the authors put the media, healthcare, national security, academia, and organized religion under the microscope. They offer a biting critique that examines the failure of these major institutions to accurately define our most pressing problems. For example, the U.S. healthcare industry strives to be the most technologically advanced in the world, but our cutting-edge system does not ensure top-quality care to the largest number of people. From a political perspective, this book shows why liberals and conservatives define problems differently, and demonstrates how each political view is incomplete without the other. Our concerns are no longer solely liberal or conservative. In fact, we can no longer trust a single group to define issues across the institutions explored in this book and beyond. "Dirty Rotten Strategies" is a bipartisan call for anyone who is ready to think outside the box to address our major concerns as a society - starting today.
