I was Motivated to write this book from encouragement I received from business management professor and successful executives in the electronics industry, as well as through my own management experience working with major corporations. The high tech business is at a crossword facing rapidly evolving technologies and fierce competition from everywhere. The success and survival of companies depends on an effective performance metrics framework and a solid continuous improvement program.The metrics program must have executive sponsorship and active management support and involvement. The author talked to many high-tech business leaders to get their feedback on the future of the industry. They all indicated that companies with an uncertain future have one thing in common- they all lack effective metrics and continuous improvement.While there are many books on general metrics concepts and application already available, this book is unique.it is dedicated to various businesses and processes prevalent in the electronic industry.

This book is structured to serve as an excellent reference for developing the strategy for and the execution of a practical, usable and easy to understand metrics program for any business in the electronics industry.
