The Barnet Big Cheeses!

Barnet Senior Management

Barnet Senior Management Course:
"Who Moved My Cheese?
An Amazing Way to Deal with Change
in Your Work and in Your Life"

"Who Moved My Cheese? features four characters: two Barnet bloggers, 'Sniff' and 'Scurry', and two senior Barnet executives, miniature management in essence, 'Hem' and 'Haw'. 

"They live behind the skirting board of Hendon Town Hall committee rooms, and look for cheese, representative of happiness and success.

"Initially without cheese, each group, the bloggers and the management, pair off and travel the lengthy corridors, searching for cheese. One day, both groups happen upon a cheese-filled corridor at "Cheese Station C". Content with their find, the management establish routines around their daily intake of cheese, slowly becoming arrogant in the process. [That figures...]

"Some managers are known to mass-distribute copies of this US video's workplace training book to employees, some of whom see this as an insult, or an attempt to characterize dissent as not 'moving with the cheese'.
"In the corporate environment, management has been known to distribute this book to employees during times of 'structural re-organization,' or during cost-cutting measures, in an attempt to portray unfavorable or unfair changes in an optimistic or opportunistic way.

"This misuse of the book's message is seen by some as an attempt by organisational management to make employees quickly and unconditionally assimilate management ideals, even if they may prove detrimental to them professionally. (Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams says that patronising parables are one of the top ten complaints he receives in his email.)"
