Fad Surfing (n): the practice of riding the crest of the latest management panacea and then paddling out again in time to ride the next one; always absorbing for managers and lucrative for consultants; frequently disastrous for organizations.
Fad Surfing in the Boardroom has been hailed by critics whose only regret is that (Shapiro) didn't write ten years ago....Eileen Shapiro doesn't miss a trick....(The Fad Surfer's Dictionary) is hard to resist.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 230-244) and index.
