About this Manual

Logistics Manual is a 166-page pdf file that you can purchase for $20, so long as you have already been certified in The Complete Program. This is our way of ensuring that our extensive materials for quantum transformation will be used as intended. See below for a detailed Table of Contents, including how you can also make use of our Consultant Schedules for Implementing the Tracks, which complements the Logistics Manual. But first, review the overview of the manual, as told to the newly appointed “Logistics Coordinator.”

A MESSAGE TO
THE LOGISTICS
COORDINATOR

Congratulations! You have just been assigned the job of coordinating all the logistical aspects of the eight-track program. If you have never before arranged a large meeting or conference (with more than fifty attendees), this assignment might seem overwhelming. The express purpose of the Logistics Manual for Implementing the Tracks, however, is to guide you—with checklists and sample email memos—through each and every stage of the program.

There are five crucial stages in which you will need to coordinate logistics: Stage 1: Initiating the Program; Stage 2: Diagnosing the Problems; Stage 3: Scheduling the Tracks; Stage 4: Implementing the Tracks; and Stage 5: Evaluating the Results. Always remember: While the Logistics Manual is meant to be a helpful guide throughout the program, you should supplement your efforts with all the specific knowledge you have (or can get) about your company’s unique needs and preferences.

Just before you get started, you should acquaint yourself with the basic ingredients of what is called the completely integrated program—or, for short, the eight-track program. For further background information see Ralph Kilmann’s books: Beyond the Quick Fix (Washington DC: Beard, 2004) and Quantum Organizations (Newport Coast, CA: Kilmann Diagnostics, 2011).

The Logistics Manual is a 166-page pdf file that you can purchase for $20, so long as you have already been certified in The Complete Program.

Consultant Schedules

for Implementing the Tracks:
Volume I, II, III

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 specific 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.
