Asked Questions ReadAct
Q. Is ReadAct like MBO (Management By Objectives) and Quality Circles? We used those for awhile and some of our people felt manipulated. They just kind of faded away after awhile.
A. When a nail is bent, the carpenter can
blame his hammer, but we know who is accountable for
applying the tool. MBO and Quality Circles can be
very effective tools when applied well. ReadAct
might lead you to use either one of them in its
appropriate place. Read Act is bigger than a tool,
it is a system. It can be applied to whole
endeavors or any part of one. It is a whole
laboratory full of tools for diagnosis and assessment,
prescription of corrective action and appropriate record
keeping along the way. Since ReadAct is done by
people rather than done to people, people feel empowered
by ReadAct, not manipulated by it.
Q. What does "and it's free" mean when you offer consulting services for a fee?
A. Access to information, knowledge and even experience of ReadAct in a "do it yourself mode" is available here without charge. Learn it, study it (About ReadAct), experience it (Interactive Solutions), and grow with it (Advanced Interactive Solutions). Please share your Results and other feedback (Discussion) with us as we collaborate on the future development of ReadAct. If the scope of the challenge requires a ReadAct expert to interact at your site, or by email, phone or fax exchange (do it with help mode) we charge a fee for the time and effort of that expert. See Services for information on our consulting, workshops, training, and other assistance.
