By J. Philip Kirby & David Hughes
In ThoughtwareTM, Hughes and Kirby provide a complete methodology that helps you shift your organization's thinking patterns from the old paradigm based on departmentalization, division of labor, span of control and point of authority to the powerful new context of knowledge, performance measurement, time to action and allowment. New ThoughtwareTM is the platform needed in order for knowledge workers to emerge, grow and impact their organizations in the 21st century.
Thought is the ancestor of all action. Peoples' thinking is the basis for everything they do and all behavior is rooted in thought. The sum of peoples' thinking and their collective interaction is the mastermind of the organization's performance. Change the ThoughtwareTM and the organization will change itself and create an unmatched capability to handle the future - whatever it is. ThoughtwareTM transcends change and creates a new context in which any and all change efforts have the optimum opportunity for success. With new ThoughtwareTM people can build a platform on which management process and change grow and renew as a naturally corollary of their thinking and interaction.
