This unique and innovative book explains how to improve your maintenance and reliability performance at the plant level by changing the organization’s culture. It is specifically intended for middle managers in the manufacturing and process industries. This book demystifies the concept of organizational culture and links it with the eight elements of change: leadership, work process, structure, group learning, technology, communication, interrelationships, and rewards. If you want to break the cycle of failed improvement programs and instead use cultural change to help make significant and lasting improvements in plant performance, this book will show you how.
