Science tells us that energy travels where it is easiest to go, and business consultant Robert Fritz borrows from this concept to provide a concrete methodology that managers can put to use immediately to develop their own paths of least resistance toward success.
Fritz incorporates four crucial activities -- new methods are studied, spread, and adopted; being smart is rewarded; cooperation rather than competition is practiced; and fairness is the standard operating principle -- into a comprehensive guide to the structural laws that govern all organizations. He prescribes a direct approach to redesigning an organization's structure to allow positive practices to follow the paths of least resistance.
This edition shows why most change efforts don't work and explains how to redesign organizations to succeed. It also shows the reader how to take structural laws into account when they restructure their own organizations, so changes they attempt to make do succeed, and they can achieve their goals.
The author of the international bestseller, ""The Path of Least Resistance"", offers a groundbreaking guide which teaches managers to recognize organizational weakness and rebuild successful corporate structures.
