Once a business moves from small to midsize or large, progress will begin to move backward if it has not identified a specific individual on the team dedicated to facilitate improvement.
PITTSBURGH, Pa. (PRWEB) August 11, 2015
“Facilitating Effective Change: Helping the Leader Lead the Way,” an innovative new book from authors Dr. Patrick Love and Patrick Putorti, is now available for purchase through leading book and e-commerce stores. Based on the authors’ combined business experience, the book’s purpose is to aid manufacturing leaders in creating sustainable effective change.
“Once a business moves from small to midsize or large, progress will begin to move backward if it has not identified a specific individual on the team dedicated to facilitate improvement,” said Putorti. “This book was written for those professionals and aims to help them better advise leaders on strategy and assist them in developing effective skills to analyze overall progress and accelerate success.”
The idea for “Facilitating Effective Change: Helping the Leader Lead the Way” evolved when Putorti and Love worked together at the Alcoa Operations Management Group. When Love, a Ph.D. in astrophysics, gave his retirement lecture to the group, his discussion regarding overcoming barriers to business improvement and operational excellence touched a chord with Putorti, who approached Love with an idea for a collaborative project. As a senior business consultant instrumental in implementing the Alcoa Business Operating System within its plants and business units, Putorti set out to combine his experience in business facilitation and Love’s knowledge of structure and business-wide change implementation to create a guide designed for the sometimes overlooked professional facilitator. Unlike other instructional business manuals, this publication is written for the men and women who are responsible for leading teams and businesses to never-before-seen levels of success.
“There are very few companies anymore that do not have these types of individuals on staff, or as third-party consultants, and a lot of responsibility is placed on the shoulders of these facilitators,” said Putorti. “Sometimes called continuous improvement directors, managers or consultants, these individuals will never be able to influence their managers without guidance themselves and that’s what this book delivers.”
