Workbook for Implementing the Tracks: Volume I
Workbook Volume I is an 882 page pdf file that you can purchsse from our Downloads Catalog for $90. See below for more information, including how you can also order Overhead Slides Volume I as well as Consultant Schedules for Implementing the Tracks. But first, here is a brief overview of these innovative materials for achieving long-term organizational success.
OVERVIEW OF ALL THREE VOLUMES
The Workbook for Implementing the Tracks, Volumes I, II, III, has recently been updated from Dr. Kilmann's previous five-track program to his recently enhanced eight-track program, which is formally presented in his book: Quantum Organizations. As a total package, the three volumes provide all the essential materials (cases, exercises, instruments, surveys, group discussions, ethical guidelines, and logistical procedures) so all organizational members can actively—and effectively—participate in quantum transformation.
All the materials are professionally and aesthetically designed into one-day-per-month workshop sessions: the most practical—and beautiful—combination of workshop materials ever developed for organizational transformation. Moreover, the Workbooks are not a pick-and-choose collection of previously available items, but are a completely integrated program of original materials. Taking more than thirty years to develop, the Workbooks have been utilized for achieving organizational success and personal meaning throughout the world. And Kilmann's Logistics Manual for Implementing the Tracks provides a Logistics Coordinator and a Logistics Team with the behind-the-scenes guidelines for implementing the tracks—smoothly and efficiently—for tens, hundreds. and thousands of participants.
OVERVIEW OF WORKBOOK VOLUME I
Workbook Volume I is 882 pages in total. It provides three workshop sessions in the culture track and three workshop sessions in the skills track. These six one-day workshop sessions for all participants in the program, usually conducted during a six-month period (one workshop per month), provide the essential foundation for establishing healthy cultural norms and learning the vital skills in people management, problem management (including assumptional analysis), and time management. These one-day workshops in Volume I also include numerous progress reports and group discussions so all members can assess what has improved, stayed the same, or become worse since the improvement program began—so they can proceed more consciously with self-transformation. All subsequent activities in Workbooks Volumes II and III build upon the cultural norms and skill development addressed throughout Workbook Volume I.

These 8.5 x 11 inch slides are numbered to correspond to the exact page in the Workbook where these slides are presented and discussed. NOTE: On that corresponding page in the Workbook, each overhead slide is reproduced in a smaller format, which leaves room for Dr. Kilmann's printed comments and extra space for note taking. All slides are in a pdf file (Acrobat), which can be used as a formal slide presentation—via a laptop computer, screen, and projector.
This pdf file (only for consultants, not for participants) provides the typical time allocations for the hourly activities in fifteen one-day workshops in Kilmann's eight-track program. These time estimates are averages from having conducted these workshop sessions many times with many different types of organizations. Naturally, consultants must adjust their time estimates for each activity in order to meet the unique needs of their audience. But these schedules at least provide a rough estimate on how much time it takes to do justice to the materials without spending too much time on unnecessary detail.
