  • Fallacy of programmatic change

    • Formal organization structure and systems cannot lead a corporate renewal process

    • Successful transformations usually start at the periphery in a few plants far from corporate

    • Provide resources and leadership development

    • Spread the lessons of success and failure

    • Not insist on specific solutions
