>There is a wonderful book recently published entitled "Profit Beyond
>Measure" by H Thomas Johnson and Anders Broms.

Is this Thomas Johnson the same who coauthored with Robert Kaplan The Rise
and Fall of Cost Accounting and who later said on Activity Based Costing
that it is nothing but rearranging the chairs on the decks of the Titanic?


[Host's Note: Yes, Winfried, it is the same person. And, yes, that's
roughly what I heard him say... After his role as one of the principal
inventors of Activity Based Costing, he changed his mind after studying
Toyota in depth. His talks and writing are fascinating. ..Rick]
