Managers often forget that their staff are not just workers or employees, they are complex individuals and every person brings unique skills to the workplace. But by expecting employees simply to do as they are told, managers turn them into mere, unthinking puppets – to the detriment of their company’s success.   By compartmentalising processes and departments, managers isolate groups of employees, who stop asking questions and stop thinking about the consequences of their tasks. Duplication occurs and, even worse, tasks fall through the cracks.   Puppets or People assists managers to look at the broader picture and see how a decision, project or new process impacts on systems in the work environment. The book uses the People and Organisational Development Integrated Approach Model. This model simplifies the concepts, processes and procedures of putting an integrated people and organisational development strategy together. It also highlights the golden thread in dealing with people and organisational development, which is the link between initiatives and the interrelationship of components.
