Our latest book, Quality Management for the Technology Sector (published by Elsevier), focuses on continuous improvement technologies in high technology industries.  
  • The book addresses the two major areas of Quality, people management and technical expertise. This is refreshing because it treats these topics openly and honestly, noting the pitfalls of specific Quality initiatives as well as the benefits.  - Douglas Caldwell, Management Visibility, The Boeing Company 
  • The book provides a great treatment of current continuous improvement tools and technologies.  The material...is direct, to the point and is easy to read.  Although many of the concepts are quantitative, Berk's use of examples and case studies makes the material easy to follow. - Jerry Ricketts, Vice President, Operations, OEA Aerospace
