Organizations will receive bi-weekly communication addressing a single core organizational issue. All of these communications will be concise and organized as follows:
• A mini-case study that describes the issue in operational terms and is based on real experience
• A clear definition of the problem and its impact
• The most effective response, typically a “tool,” “checklist” or recommended source for further information on this problem
Subscribers will be entitled to an e-mail or telephone consultation to customize their organization’s response to the issue. These responses and consultations will be grounded in FS&A’s thirty plus years of organizational development and our extensive knowledge of materials and tools in the field.
In some instances, organizations will want to access and use FS&A’s “Rapid Change” model, a sharply time-limited, cost-effective and proven approach to defining, understanding the impact of and getting commitment to the best possible solution to the organizational problems that often stand in the way of achieving success. Subscribers will also have access to the template for the Rapid Change Model for use without external support.

Organizations will receive a weekly e-mail on a single core issue related to organizational health and effectiveness. All of these communications will be organized in the following manner:
a) A vignette or mini-case study. Here is the problem, e.g., meeting quality, delegation, dealing with a difficult or disruptive person, project management deficiencies, flawed work processes, mismanaged conflict, decision-making, lack of teamwork/silos, too many surprises, uses of information
b) Here is what typically happens to organizations because of this problem
c) Here is the most effective response, typically a “tool” or checklist for action
Plans that aren’t successfully executed didn’t happen.
“A thought that does not result in action is nothing much,…
… and an action that does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.”- George Bernanos
The path to effective implementation is clear and linear:
“Over the course of many years and many projects, all dealing with various aspects of organizational effectiveness, I have witnessed many of Frank Schneiger’s successes. His direct involvement at all levels of the organization provides groups with tools and skills for problem-solving and managing change, while emphasizing the central role of real decision-making. Frank has always stressed the organization’s accountability for its mission and the individual’s responsibility in carrying out that mission. He has always carried projects through to completion, providing the follow-up and clarity that make certain that execution is taking place.”
— Richard Kutilek, Chief Operating Officer
