Author A.J. Aaronabout this book: A.J. Aaron delves into the human forces that can undermine organizational change. Roland Vandergrift, the owner and CEO makes the classic error in implementing Lean thinking in his operations. As these concepts take hold and productivity improves along with cash flow, he still wants more profit. Instead of redeploying these resources and growing the company, many CEOs like Roland and senior managers see it as an opportunity to reduce head counts and close down selected operations. Some even intentionally put their plants into death spirals to justify their decisions.

• "As the story develops we are taken into the personal lives of Roland and Sedric, his newly appointed president. As a "tiger does not change its strips", we see how these two behave in both their professional and private lives as they use their power, and control with the hope of getting people to conform to their wishes. I generally do not read novels. In this case I kept getting drawn back into the story, I highly recommend it."
