Change can be hard. It is often difficult to conceive performing tasks in a different order, in a different place, at a different time, or in a different manner altogether. And this is only for the individual. When we talk about organizational change the difficulty increases exponentially with each individual that is added to the equation. Regardless of organizational improvement methodology (Lean, Six Sigma, ISO, Balanced Scorecard) as programs they are difficult to implement; as disciplines they are difficult to understand. This book uses as its basis a fable – the story is not untrue, but it is not fact either. It is a story in which the group dynamics are real, the problems are valid, and the solutions legitimate. It asks you to consider a complex environment with multiple classes interacting between functional units with requirements that are perceived as exclusive and unique, and personalities that reinforce presumed boundaries. It asks you to follow along as all these individuals work together using the basics of four quality methodologies (Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, and Business Process Reengineering) to address the problems they face, discover solutions together, and move forward in their continuous performance improvement journey. COMMENTS FROM OTHER CUSTOMERSAverage Customer Rating: (5 of 5 based on 1 review) "Goldratt, Disney, and Lewis are all gone now but their fiction/fable genre lives on in Mr. Bowie's ingenious "Farm-iliar" setting. This easy to read and entertaining work on transformative change comes highly recommended whether you are a beginner in continuous improvement initiatives or consider yourself to be an "expert". His rural characters are carefully selected to represent the cultures and attitudes often found within typical organizations and serve to drive each step-wise lesson in continuous improvement forward with unrelenting clarity. This book will make you a better "expert" or simply set you feet on a solid path towards the goal of perfection. It is nearly everything you need to know to ply your trade and fix whatever problematic situations constrain your success. "M. James Allen, Ph. D. , President & Founder Lean Diagnostics Institute
