Workbook for Implementing the Tracks: Volume III
Workbook Volume III is an 450 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 III 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
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 successfully—for tens, hundreds. and thousands of participants.
OVERVIEW OF WORKBOOK VOLUME III
Workbook Volume III is 450 pages in total. It begins with two one-day workshop sessions in the gradual process track—highlighting the most value-added principles and practices from total quality management (which can only succeed AFTER successfully implementing the prior five tracks). Volume III then provides a one-day workshop session for the radical process track—highlighting the best principles and practices from business process reengineering and process innovation (which can only succeed AFTER the proper foundation has been created with the prior six tracks). This latter one-day workshop also includes an introduction to the learning process track—providing the best approaches to organizational learning (which must be built on the successful implementation of the prior seven tracks). These three process tracks constitute the newest aspects of the sequential eight-track program, expanding upon the original five system tracks (covering both the informal and formal systems in the organization). As such, Volume III makes extensive use of all the prior materials and discussions in Volume I and Volume II.

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.
