BCG History: 1993

Real-World Affirmation

In a Perspective titled "Time-Based Results," Tom Hout and George Stalk review the successful experiences of three very different companies using time-based competition: Chrysler, which improved its process of innovation; Karolinska Hospital, in Stockholm, which improved its service; and Milliken, a textile company, which was able to smooth its interface and integrate operations with Warren Featherbone, an apparel maker, for mutual benefit.
