Workbook for Implementing the Tracks: Volume II
Workbook Volume II is an 796 page pdf file that you can purchsse from our Downloads Catalog for $90. See below for more information, including how you can also order Overhead Slides Volume II as well as Consultant Schedules for Implementing the Tracks. But first, here is a brief overview of these innovative materials for achieving long-term organizational success.
OVERVIEW OF ALL THREE VOLUMES
Workbook for Implementing the Tracks, Volumes I, II, III, has recently been updated from Dr. Kilmann's previous five-track program to his recently enhanced eight-track program, which is formally presented in his book: Quantum Organizations. As a total package, the three volumes provide all the essential materials (cases, exercises, instruments, surveys, group discussions, ethical guidelines, and logistical procedures) so all organizational members can actively—and effectively—participate in quantum transformation.
All the materials are professionally and aesthetically designed into one-day-per-month workshop sessions: the most practical—and beautiful—combination of workshop materials ever developed for organizational transformation. Moreover, the Workbooks are not a pick-and-choose collection of previously available items, but are a completely integrated program of original materials. Taking more than thirty years to develop, the Workbooks have been utilized for achieving organizational success and personal meaning throughout the world. And Kilmann's Logistics Manual for Implementing the Tracks provides a Logistics Coordinator and a Logistics Team with the behind-the-scenes guidelines for implementing the tracks—smoothly and successfully—for tens, hundreds. and thousands of participants.
OVERVIEW OF WORKBOOK VOLUME II
Workbook Volume II is 796 pages in total. It provides three workshop sessions in the team track, which completes the first three tracks of the eight-track program. Proceeding with the next two tracks in the program involves a one-day workshop in the strategy-structure track and a one-day workshop in the reward system track. Volume II then provides the materials and group discussions for the next workshop sessions in these two tracks in order to redesign the formal systems in the organization. These several workshops for the strategy-structure and the reward system tracks are intended for two task forces of about 25 participants each (one task force for each track), who represent all specialties, levels, and locations in the organization. The last chapter in Volume II, Chapter 15, provides five self-report assessments for evaluating important aspects of organizational functioning (relative to when these assessment tools were taken much earlier in the program), which sets the stage for additional work sheets and group discussions to close the identified gaps between "what is" and "what could or should be." All materials in Volume II build upon the cultural norms and skill development first learned in Volume I.

These 8.5 x 11 inch slides are numbered to correspond to the exact page in the Workbook where these slides are presented and discussed. NOTE: On that corresponding page in the Workbook, each overhead slide is reproduced in a smaller format, which leaves room for Dr. Kilmann's printed comments and extra space for note taking. All slides are in a pdf file (Acrobat), which can be used as a formal slide presentation—via a laptop computer, screen, and projector.
This pdf file (only for consultants, not for participants) provides the typical time allocations for the hourly activities in fifteen one-day workshops in Kilmann's eight-track program. These time estimates are averages from having conducted these workshop sessions many times with many different types of organizations. Naturally, consultants must adjust their time estimates for each activity in order to meet the unique needs of their audience. But these schedules at least provide a rough estimate on how much time it takes to do justice to the materials without spending too much time on unnecessary detail.
