Abstract

Herman Miller is one of the strongest, most well-known furniture manufacturers in the world today. Since its birth in 1923, the company's innovative management philosophies and programs have delighted employees and clients alike. The purpose of this study is to analyze various aspects of Herman Miller--corporate culture, environment, mission--and explore their implications to further my understanding of the organization and the furniture industry as a whole. The scope of the study is Herman Miller's present situation as analyzed through interviews, periodical research, company literature, and textbooks. A major finding of the study is Herman Miller's unwavering dedication to excellence. I have found the company to be a fine example for other furniture manufacturers, or any other firm, to emulate.
