A. W. Shaw Bibliography
THINK Again: IBM CAN Maximize Shareholder Value is now available
Publications of A. W. Shaw (A. W. Shaw Company)
Three Companion Volumes
- The Way to Greater Production
- The Management and the Worker
This is an excellent book. If you thought profit sharing and stock options were a 21st Century invention, this book--published in 1920--will dispel that myth. It was one in a series of three books shown here that were published by the A. W. Shaw Company. The three volumes are The Way to Greater Production, The Management and the Worker, and Working Conditions, Wages, and Profits.
Contributors to this volume were peers to Thomas J. Watson Sr. and included one of his strongest mentors, George F. Johnson of Endicott Johnson Inc. Since management was a new concern in businesses which had not yet achieved the size and scale of today's corporations, it is interesting to read how the owners of the day struggled with maintaining peace in their organizations between labor and management. These entrepreneurs who were mostly men were sophisticated, understood their workers needs, and very creative in the avenues they explored to maintain harmony within their organizations.
- Working Conditions, Wages and Profits
Peter E. Greulich is an author, publisher and public speaker.
He has written three books on IBM and three essays on Thomas J. Watson Sr.’s leadership during the Great Depression. His latest book, THINK Again: IBM CAN Maximize Shareholder Value is about IBM, its leaders, its employees, its shareholders, its customers, its supportive societies, and one-hundred years of their unique interactions. IBM has had its great, good, and bad moments; and, in this century, some of its ugliest.
But there is still hope.
