3D MANAGEMENT REVOLUTION

3D is original management philosophy. It questions UK traditional management structures and proposes revolutionary ideas to replace chains of financial and other complex management layers. 3D aims to produce the best Chief Executive for each organisation.

3D does this through 3-layer management structures, using Professional Managers to focus on customers as central to strategy and planning. 3D integrates conventional organisation departments and provides a realistic method for monitoring everything in a single system.

3D Revolution sets out the week by week route to achieve this in a how to do it plan.

The impact of Covid19 has disrupted conventional structures and communications turning organisations upside down and inside out. That has also released creativity and flexibility. Now is the time to take the opportunity to build on this and review convention to improve how we work forever. 3D provides a way of changing for improved ways of doing business to put customers at the centre and provide what they want in a responsive and direct way. 3D shows how.

Mike writes about the key conflicts of the Western world, challenging the political thinking of the day, highlighting the nonsense of political thinking at the time, and raising awareness of the wider context of democracy and the human condition.
Perhaps a little less humorous than some of his other poetry, but always ironic and sharply pertinent in observation, Mike concentrates on the dilemmas, excuses and ironies of negotiation and getting agreement.
