When you talk about employee ownership...

...employees begin re-thinking their expectations about decision-making roles and responsibilities. Employee-ownership companies have a special need for clarity about who does what--regardless of how much employee involvement company leaders want.

This Handbook highlights relevant research and principles of efficient decision-making systems, but its focus is a hands-on method to clarify and communicate a company’s decision-making system, and to ensure support from all parts of the work force.

Companies intending to adopt participative management will find tools in this Handbook to establish a solid foundation. Other companies use this Handbook primarily as a way to build an organization-wide understanding of their current decision-making system.

The Frontiers and Boundaries Handbook is available for $200.00 exclusively from Ownership Associates, in the WebStore or by contacting us directly.

The Handbook includes:

  • a step-by-step process to customize Decision Charts for your own company
  • proven methods to maximize buy-in by middle managers and the work force
  • sample agendas for manager and workforce meetings
  • highlights of relevant research
  • principles of efficient decision-making systems
  • and more! Visit the links below for more information.
