Co-authored by Gill Ringland, Patricia Lustig and Rob Phaal, with Martin Duckworth and Chris Yapp, Here be Dragons is an executive handbook aimed at senior managers facing the challenges of long-term survival coupled with short-term fire-fighting in today’s complex operating environment.
It provides a compelling narrative as to how and why European manufacturing organisations must embark on a continual Cycle of Renewal.
Here Be Dragons takes the reader on a practical and pragmatic journey, as the authors immerse themselves into taking a fictional, but representative, manufacturer through the Cycle of Renewal, creating a unique narrative that all readers will be able to translate into their own organisations.
The narrative draws on the real life experience of the authors and dispenses with case studies in favour of a single real-life journey from solid performance to renewal and innovation.
The second half of the book, the Pilot’s Guide, provides the reader with an in-depth guide to how the tools and methodology work, each chapter matching a part of the fictional narrative. Each half of the book can stand alone, but each is complemented by the other.
