Why did Arthur Andersen really collapse? What crucial lessons can be learned from Andersen's experience? Inside Arthur Andersen uncovers the roots of Andersen's implosion, tracing its spectacular two-decade transformation from staid auditor to aggressive consulting firm-and the profound change in corporate culture that led to its self-destruction. The authors bring 26+ years' experience studying Andersen culture from the inside-and their story offers profound lessons for every organization.
