How it all began

The story kicks off on a Monday morning in September, 1979. I was one of a very few women working as a computer systems analyst in this automotive company. On the weekend just passed, my latest system creation was launched, humming along beautifully, working like it was planned. A hard-wrought victory, a quiet aka perfect launch, and on to the next creation… or so I thought.

There was, however, a problem. A big, hairy problem. An I-cannot-believe-this-is-happening, my baby is NOT ugly, “you’ve got to be kdding me” kind of problem.

My perfect computer system completely shut down an entire manufacturing engineering function – the main group of users of that perfect system.

And so began the tale of: “The Fishbowl and 16 Angry Men.”

This story weaves through what has emerged today as the Organizational Readiness Framework©,  and, more of the story is revealed inside our Portal Vault. Suffice it to say, this lived experience is what drives me to this day as the IT professional who went rogue, diving head-first into a dual-career path that led to The Change Portal and the possibilities for learnable, teachable, and duplicate-able Fail-Proof business process change.
