The book contains a series of whimsical, satirical short stories, each one based on his experience, that highlights many of the foibles in businesses across the world, particularly in manufacturing companies. It is totally different from any of his previous books, in style and content, and is both serious and amusing. These short, fictitious stories illustrate various principles and key lessons for businesses, while also serving as a good airplane or beach read.

For example, in one story, Otto Kratic, VP of Manufacturing, demonstrates how being singularly focused on one issue can lead to a silo mentality—to the overall detriment of the business. In another story, Penny Pincher, VP of Procurement, illustrates how saving money in procurement practices doesn’t necessarily save money for the company and can actually cost the company far more.

The stories included in this book feature characters whose names illustrate their behavior, providing an amusing way of demonstrating the many lessons that can be learned, but hopefully without suffering through similar situations in your organization.
