Part I covers the preparatory actions that organizations should take before initiating a transformation, without which the effort is doomed to failure, says Dr. Oden. In Part II he covers the technical or engineering aspects of the transformation. First he develops a process map of the organization as the basis for process improvement; then he diagnoses the existing and future organization to determine how processes should be improved. In Part III he looks at the various organizational change methods that are available, conducts a broad design of the total organization, and then designs the human resource support processes for the transformed organization. Finally, in Part IV, Dr. Oden shows how to incorporate the redesigned processes into the existing system--the most difficult part of the transformation--and ends by showing how better integration can be achieved to provide better overall transformational results.
