“True satisfaction has many stakeholders. The Second Shift Model provides a superb roadmap to get all stakeholders engaged.”

“Keeping GM in Lansing was a shared vision. Local UAW leaders and membership, politicians, business leaders, and General Motors came together for the benefit of the whole community, with no single person more important than the others.”
-Mike Green, President, United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 652, Lansing, Michigan
“No one can take what they have for granted, particularly in this very complex global marketplace. Decisions are often made by those who do not have a personal knowledge of the community. Thus, every day we must continue to grow the value of our work to diverse stakeholders. Second Shift is an exceptional story of perseverance.”
-Lou Anna K. Simon, President, Michigan State University

The Six Steps.
1. Identifying challenges
2. Partnering: i.e. building strong relationships between different groups (and political party lines)
3. Building: i.e. employing a willingness to be flexible and continually evaluate how effective the process is
4. Solving, i.e. engage in constant problem solving
5. Celebrating, i.e. mark successful milestones, both big and small
One thing that struck me was how willing the various authors and people interviewed were willing to admit that in multiple places, it had not been a smooth journey. But a willingness to put aside past personal differences and focus on the real issues helped the players stay the course.Read more ›
