Yesterday's Bright Ideas

Across the Board magazine has an article in its May/June 2006 issue titled "Whatever Happened to Yesterday's Bright Ideas?" They include In Search of Excellence as one of the original influences on a new outlook on business heralded 20+ years ago. They go on to ask—and give their opinions on answers to—these questions:

Worth a look.
