"The Southwest Airlines Way explores the policies, strategies, and techniques that have led to Southwest's success and explains how these proven methods can be put to work in any organization.

Based on Professor Jody Hoffer Gittell's eight years of field research in the airline industry, this book unveils the secret ingredient - high performance relationships - that has enabled Southwest to sustain a steady 10 to 15 percent rate of growth throughout its 32-year history while turning a profit in every year but its first."
