There is a book called Turbulence in which the author/researchers studied Boeing when it converted to the Jack Welch formula of business. They first thing they had to do was destroy the old model that included things like loyalty, shared sense of purpose, and pride in their work. It was replaced with competition among workers and fear of losing their jobs.

They followed up with a second book that told the effects od the realized changes. Not good.
