The VSM Guide is a manual for managers of co-operations, written by Jon Walker. It is based on Jon’s practical experience with organizing and structuring co-ops and federation.
Its strong points include
- it is very practical, gets directly to the point and helps managers to start immediately with making sense of an existing organization. While the examples are located in Jon’s main line of work – co-ops – the descriptions are universal and can easily be adapted to the generic company.
- it includes a step-by-step approach to a preliminary – meaning: quick – diagnosis of what is going on in an organization.
