Raytheon directors punished the chief executive, William H. Swanson, by taking away almost $1 million from his 2006 compensation yesterday because he failed to give credit for material that was in a management book he wrote. . . .

The similarities between many of the rules in Mr. Swanson’s book and the 1944 text was uncovered by a San Diego engineer, Carl Durrenberger, who then posted his observations on a blog he maintains.

Reader Jeff Barr, who sends the story, also sends this link to the blog entry in question.
