The Linked Business Models

"In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned are beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists!" - Roland Barth

IT IS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE and CHANGE: 

Either you master people skills or you become a liability.  Likewise, you either master change or become irrelevant. 

“The only person who likes change is a baby with a wet diaper!” Mark Twain

However, change is inevitable and will increase in response to corporate resizing, organizational evolution, the changing economic climate, a fluctuating marketplace, innovation in technology, and the ever-changing landscape of our work force. Never before in history have there been this many trends or has this much information been as accessible as it is today. Just to catalog the types of information would take an enormous amount of time. Things are changing so fast that good solid research seems to turn facts into fiction and then back again over and over again. Just like personal diet plans, organizations are bombarded with information that can only be assessed by those doing the work. Increased information brings enlightenment yet may simultaneously cause confusion and chaos. Even the largest ships of industry, like Microsoft, may change direction or even break apart, based on the whims of politicians. At the same time, other never seen virtual organizations seemingly made only of smoke and mirrors rise like huge erupting volcanoes, some erupting, not exploding like Mount St Helen's, but rather popping more like bubbles. Companies that survive and prosper in this environment will have to learn how to not only tolerate change but also embrace it and use it as a competitiveness tool. 

The Linked Management Models were developed by Mr. Stevens.  He has worked for over twenty years and has spend over twelve years in graduate schools studying industrial and systems engineering, management and business administration. During this time he has reviewed thousands of processes, systems, internal cultures, strategic plans, articles and books on the subjects of change, quality, six sigma, TQM, ISO 9000, chaos, project and program management, executive management, organizational development, behavioral science, technology and leadership. The outcome has been his creation of possibly the only wholistic approach to business around, called The Linked Management Models. It is truly a roadmap to success for the confusing times of the 21st Century.
