              This book is a history book documenting the CCS-Civil Communication Section - which was created by General Douglas MacAuthur during the occupation of WWII to improve communications in Japan. However, before they could work on improving the quality of communications they found the...y had to train the major communications companies in American Management. Ultimately this training led to the resurgence and later dominance of the Japanese electronics industry and Japan's economic miracle. Many of the teachings laid the foundation for what we call Lean and Six Sigma today. This book documents the genesis of the CCS and how three engineers helped get the Japanese economy by teaching American management and placing an emphasis on shop-floor leadership.
