In The Mutual Gains Enterprise, the authors argue that a “mutual gains system” in the workplace will help American business attain a world-class, sustainable competitive advantage and, at the same time, secure more rewarding employment for workers. Instead of unsuccessful pleas for more cooperation among labor, management, and government, a new approach, led by a national policy that endorses and facilitates innovation in employment relations, is required to structure the relationships among these parties that are necessary for achieving long-term viability. Presented are case studies of such companies as Motorola, Corning, Xerox, Polaroid and G.M.’s Saturn, all of which have successfully implemented new work systems.
