The Ice Cream Maker is an intriguing story of Peter Delvecchio, the beleaguered Plant Manager of Dairy Cream, an ice cream manufacturing company. Dairy Cream is on the verge of closure with its sales at nadir. Peter reaches out to his former neighbor Mike McMaster of Natural Foods, who has a talismanic influence on him. Based on an engaging dialogue between Peter and Mike, internationally renowned management and quality strategist and best selling author Subir Chowdhury has revealed how Mike guides Peter to enable Dairy Cream to rise from the ashes like a Phoenix, using the LEOSM concept - Listen, Enrich, and Optimize. This concept drives home the point of building quality in every aspect of the organizational culture, for businesses to become leading players in the global market and retain their position. In an easy to read and understand approach, Chowdhury gives an in-depth insight of quality leadership.
