If you know us, you know that we’ve always got something new in the works, here at the Arcade office. This Fall, we’re excited to announce the release of our first book, Drive, released in e-book and paperback.
Some of you may know that Mary is no stranger to the publishing industry, with some science fiction and nonfiction titles to her name prior to her time at Arcade, but this is our first title as an organization, and the first time compiling the systems we’ve been developing into a book that we can share with our clients, but also with folks who until now, were too geographically removed to work with us (as parents, we don’t do too much traveling – yet!)
Drive outlines our full scale development model, also known by its slightly less exciting working title – Organizational Wayfinding.
Organizational Wayfinding is the process we have used for four years now, helping clients to comb through their business, identifying their unique strengths (referred to as ‘Fuel’ in the Drive model) and their obstacles (or Roadblocks.)
You’ll learn to take the pulse of your organization, following a simple checklist style worksheet, determine your direction through our unique Compass, Code and Strategy model, and map out your whole organization as it exists using our People and Process mapping methods.
The book also details our Sprint methodology of working through the changes that you’ll identify as a result of the mapping process, as well as learning to build smart metrics to keep your process on RAILS, our simple process based problem solving model, and our Resolution Theory of Change.
This book will enable the most intrepid of explorers to undertake the Drive process independently (though we’re always available to pinch hit, if you should have a question or two!) However, if you’re currently working with us in a full scale capacity, you might find value in a read through as well, so that you can gain a better understanding of all the wheels turning under the surface.
Coming to Amazon, Kindle Marketplace, and an Arcade office near you on October 15, 2018, at $25.00 a copy, pre-order yours today!
