Learning from a Case Study of a Model Company. Strategic Environmental Management is the first book of its kind that actually shows you how to make TQEM work in your company. It provides the information, tools, and expert guidance you need to plan, implement, and successfully manage a TQEM program. You will also learn the benefits of fully integrating environmental management into your organization's overall business plan, and how to sell these benefits to top management. Dr. Grace Wever first lays the necessary conceptual groundwork with an in-depth discussion of EHS management as seen from the Baldrige, Deming, and ISO 14001 frameworks. She then arms you with a full complement of proven-in-the-trenches TQEM tools and techniques.
