Train-Wreck Management

Wow, this is a well organized essay by Mary Poppendieck.

Train-Wreck Management

The essay explains a bit about how a train accident in 1841 leads to the Prussian army becoming a model for today's organization chart!

I recommend anything on the website, and the books they've authored as well.
