About the Book

Common change management efforts fail! Senior and middle-managers, who attempt to change their organizations, are offered a glut of analysis techniques that only provide short-term solutions. Many of those analysis techniques express they supply the panacea of business solutions to both companies and organizations. They can’t. Short-term solutions will not provide the required processes that tie into the organizational policy, the integrated follow-on processes, and later procedures without connecting management decisions throughout the whole of the enterprise.
Unless those independent analysis tools offered affect continuous improvement and become part of the culture, focused toward a concerted effort, the resources used are most often wasted as they fail to bring the results intended or needed. Unless companies learn how to customize change and continuous improvement for their industries, and in their individual environments, they are doomed to continually wrestle with their resources in their efforts to engage solutions that are critical to long-term and competitive successes.

Professionalizing Strategic Systems Management for Business and Organization Success – Introducing the Change and Continuous Improvement Management Three-Leg Stool is a viable option to both the training and adoption of a continuous improvement culture in companies and organizations, whether they are civilian, civic-governmental, or military, it is imperative to business operations sustainment. With little doubt it will also highlight the importance of the segmented unit’s worth within a myriad of business organizations.

The focus of this book is to help senior and middle-managers overcome training and operational stagnation in their businesses and organizations. Further, it provides business college trainers, their deans and their professors the opportunity to help train business students using a broader and more integrated scope by the time they leave academia and enter their respective professions. Here more advanced and integrated business management and continuous improvement systems are explained. Your future awaits!
