Category: Organization Design and Process Improvement
Welcome to Management MeditationsFor the past forty-five years, beginning with the redesign of a prison to create a learning environment, I have been working to create healthy, high performing, organizations. I reject adherence to any one theory or methodology, but choose to learn from all and to integrate all into a holistic understanding of human behavior and the culture of organizations.
- I do two things to help my clients: First, I help to redesign the organization and its systems to eliminate waste in the process flow and to form self-directed teams that engage in continuous improvement of the work process. These are the key elements of the technical and social systems of a lean or agile organizaton.
- Second, I help to develop the skills of team leadership and team members. In recent years I have developed a dozen online courses to deliver lean and leadership training in the most efficient way. Online learning does not change behavior alone. But, when online training is paired with coaching and action-learning, the culture will change in a sustainable way. My courses are designed to be part of a system of learning and development.
- I hope you will take a look at The Process of Change that describes a proven set of change methodologies.
