This book explains how to organize and manage modifications during the solution realization phase of problem solving so improvements become the new way of life. The nine steps detailed in the books chapters, although applied to solution implementation, can be used on their own to manage many types of system modification. These transition activities are framed in a three stage model first proposed by Kurt Lewin the father of change theory. It packages a strategy for sustaining improvements that is easy to understand and apply – unfreeze, change, and refreeze. Fundamental organizational performance techniques are introduced during each step to assist in managing the transformation from idea to integrated solution. These practices are not new or revolutionary, but often overlooked while team members focus on statistical and analytical means The described methods have a decidedly human focus and are meant to supplement the familiar diagnostic tools associated with six-sigma and process improvement projects.

The issues of concern are the frustrations, violence, educational disappointments and insults to children of the United States. My book begins with the shooting at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999 and then takes a look back to the high-lights of recent American history from WWII as an attempt to put into some perspective the major events that seem to have contributed to the devaluation of the professionalism of teachers and educators and public education in general. This, then, leads to a presentation of the need for educational reform with specific recommendations as well as guidance models for the young as an adjunct to societal reform and a final summation of purposes and directions for the future. It also provides teaching points and a guidance manual for those in the fields of counseling, civics, modern U.S. history, psychology and sociology.
