While quality improvements are as important in corporate support functions as they are in engineering and manufacturing, they are much more difficult to define and quantify. Charles S. Sengstock, who served as director of Corporate Communications for Motorola North America, has tackled this challenge by considering administrative functions "virtual factories." Focusing on non-standard, non-repetitive tasks, Sengstock demonstrates how PERT charts, process maps, surveys, and other tools can eliminate unnecessary steps and waiting time. Not only will you improve your process and product quality, but also learn how to enlist staff support for the continued success of your program.

That Toddlin' Town: Chicago's White Dance Bands and Orchestras, 1900-1950 (Music in American Life)
ISBN: 0252029542

University of Illinois Press. 2004

That Toddlin' Town looks at the history of the white dance bands, theater orchestras, radio studio ensembles, and nightclub bands.
Charles Sengstock examines these bands not only in terms of the music they played but also in the context of the venues in which they performed and Chicago's volatile economic and social climate. Viewing the bands as an economic system, he analyzes them as businesses with all the usual pressures brought on by ambition, personality clashes, and the overriding need to serve clients.
