Before It's Too Late: Employee
Involvement...An Idea Whose Time Has Come by Peter B. Grazier
Wouldn't you know that we'd list our own book here. Actually, I struggled with it, but
then re-read the excellent reviews it received through the years.
This little 170-page book is still considered one of the best employee involvement primers
written. Six simple chapters discuss:
What is Employee Involvement?
So Why Change?
The Psychology of Employee Involvement
Management Support Behaviors
Setting Up the Process

Best: Industry Week's Guide To World-Class Manufacturing Plants
by Theordore B. Kinni
One would not expect to find much about employee involvement in a
manufacturing book, but find it you will in this one. Industry Week magazine began
profiling its America's Best Plants award winners in 1990, and unknowingly began to
accumulate a treasure trove of information about what makes these plants the best of the
best. In 1996, Ted Kinni and Industry Week published a wonderful book that highlights 62
of these plants. Not surprising to those of us in the participation field, employee
involvement surfaced as one of the key elements of successful plants. So the 62 case
studies are sprinkled with ample doses of employee involvement examples. A "must
read" for those in manufacturing.
