"Proper capacity management is the driving force behind outstanding corporate performance.

This is a solid foundation in capacity management for the business professional!"
-Steve Bragg, Author

"Although capacity management is a fundamental concern, it-like many other fundamentals-is often scanted. In fact, there's little that's more important to most companies than their ability to manage their capacity, which is simply the ability to do work. Essentials of Capacity Management does a great job of giving a quick, yet thorough, overview of the many considerations involved."
-Barry J. Brinker, Editor, Guide to Cost Management (John Wiley & Sons)

"This book does an excellent job of relating processes to capacity. Managers and executives will better understand that managing the effectiveness and efficiency of processes reduces the amount of capacity required, thus providing an opportunity to reduce costs while improving process quality and reducing process time. It shows the relationship of capacity to demand on downstream processes. It shows that process flexibility reduces required capacity."
-John Antos, President, Value Creation Group, Inc.
