Sam Carpenter

The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less

Fourth Edition

Bricks and mortar, virtual, retail, construction, service and/or product-producer, owner-operated, large or small staff: It doesn’t matter. Whatever the business type, dysfunction has its roots in the same foundational weakness: a fire-killing, non-systematic approach.

The Work the System methodology takes a simple yet deep tact, one that begins with a single “tweak” in the leader’s perspective of how the business (and life!) mechanically unfolds. With this new “one layer deeper” vantage point, internal and external processes are starkly visible, and subsequent necessary actions obvious.

Sam’s second book, The Systems Mindset: Managing the Machinery of your Life, is for those who don’t own or manage a business. See www.thesystemsmindset.com.
