This is for people in business, government and nonprofit organizations who know that they don't have time to wait for the federal government's economic restructuring, new tax policies or government programs and initiatives to make their companies more productive and competitive.

I-Power is for people in both large and small organizations.

It's for people who are seriously interested in effective operations-for heads of organizations-for heads of departments-for heads of teams or units-for individual workers.

I-Power is for everyone who feels that work can be an opportunity for each of us to operate at our highest level-if we work within an intelligent system.

It's not about operating lean and mean. Not about downsizing or "rightsizing." Nor is it another sermon about how people are your company's most important resource.

Quite simply, the practical system described in this kit-and proven in practice for several years now-shows the way to encourage every worker in the organization to think-think about the way each of them works-and to contribute-contribute information and ideas on how to do everything better.

You don't need an elaborate and expensive incentive- compensation system to generate this powerful force for creative change. Nor do you need consultants, software, training packages or managers with MBAs.

Everything any company needs to process the work it already does far more efficiently is already in the minds, hands and experience of the workers who now handle the work. They know where the waste is. And they are often the first to recognize new opportunities for the company to pursue.

So we tell you how to take control of the company and make it successful in these perilous times. And by this we do not mean control by fine-tuning financial and reporting systems, closing doors (and plants and offices) or narrowing decision-making to an expert elite.

In the simple, pencil-and-paper system described in this kit, one company widened responsibility for corporate survival and profitable growth to everyone working for the company. The battle plan worked-and continues to work.

Everything you need to put this plan to work for yourself-in your department or in your company-is right here.

And then, if we convince you to try out the I-Power system, go ahead. Make an earnest effort-and then tell us what happens. We need the ideas and the problems that you and your people generate to make this system work even better.

Like all great battle plans, this one, too, can be improved by experiences-your experiences. And we will take on the responsibility for adding your suggestions to this battle plan-and keeping in touch with you.

From the Author:

Hello I'm Martin Edelston, founder of Boardroom Inc., the publisher of Bottom Line/Personal, Moneysworth, Bottom Line/Business and other very useful books and magazines.

Business Miracle... In 1989, we created a business miracle-I-Power.

It could be very valuable to you-so it's especially important that you know about it.

Back in 1989, we were a smallish business with 68 employees, high worker turnover, very high absenteeism...and not a lot of business.

In just a few years, thanks to I-Power, business grew with only a few more people. Personnel turnover plummeted to zero and...absenteeism dropped very sharply too.

I-Power is a very fast, simple, extraordinarily powerful continuous improvement program. It has been instrumental in the great growth-and successes-of hundreds of other companies and nonprofit organizations that are using it today.

We'll give you all the tools to make I-Power work for you, too! You can start your own I-Power business program tomorrow.

The Starter's Kit. After giving more than 500 public and in- house workshops on the I-Power system since 1992, we have taken all we have learned-and created the new I-Power Starter's Kit.

Included in this kit: All the materials-all the information you'll need to start an I-Power program in your own workplace quickly-and easily-and keep it all running efficiently. Guaranteed!

Good for you! I-Power works in big companies and small, profit and nonprofit alike...and departments...and teams too.

Start with your own group to quickly become more efficient-more effective -and much, much more productive.

When your coworkers see what you've given them, you'll become a Business Hero in Your Own Workplace.
