Abstract:

"The first insider's account of how an American company turned to its people to save a vital, but failing, business unit. Told as a personal narrative from the perspective of Steve Frangos, the manager of Eastman Kodak's Black and White Film Division, Team Zebra is a powerful account of a billion dollar 100-year-old business and the 1500 partners who pulled off "the turnaround of the decade."" "Set in the shadow of "Mother Kodak" in Rochester, New York, the story initially unfolds as a "classic" business failure in the making. Challenged in once "safe" markets by fierce competition and hampered by inefficient operations and rigid management practices, the division was given eighteen months to turn around its financial performance. Fortunately for its 1500 employees and thousands of customers, the leadership of the division, soon to be known as Team Zebra, struck out on a courageous course that radically changed the face and results of the business." "In the ensuing year, the entire operation was converted to an empowered, team-based enterprise. People became genuine partners in making vital decisions that dramatically improved the quality and efficiency of their operation. Without using the popular buzz words, Team Zebra: "reengineered" their entire production operation; created a "learning organization" through Town Meetings, Team Victory celebrations, and Operation Prime Time; developed clear "core competencies"; focused on "organizational architecture" by creating interdependent work teams; and employed "time-based competition" that dramatically reduced costs and waste and improved the commercialization of new products." "One year into this inspiring story, Team Zebra was achieving stunning results. Operating with astounding efficiency, the division established itself as one of Kodak's leading units in terms of product quality, efficiency, and customer satisfaction. At the heart of this dramatic transformation was a firm, abiding commitment to entrust the fate of an enterprise to its people." "Team Zebra is a powerful example for all companies who are struggling with brutal competition and coping with fewer resources. It not only provides hope, it also reveals Ten essential "Zebra Truths" and Five insightful lessons for today's enterprise. This message offers a path to follow in transforming any organization to face the visible challenges of the present and embrace the unseen opportunities of the future."--Jacket.
