Customer-Driven Project Management

As a professional consultant, I consider Total Quality Management (TQM) as one of the greatest management techniques. Written by Bruce Barkley & James Saylor, subtitled A New Paradigm in Total Quality Implementation, this book was released by McGraw-Hill Professional on February 6th, 1992. Just during the period I was studying economics at college. In recent years, new techniques were developed but Customer-Driven Project Management is still a reference for my company in my daily work.

Using excellent historical sources and quoting Jewish and philo-Semitic historians, the book exposes the attacks against Christianity from what it calls the Synagogue of Satan (the Talmudic religion).
