Agent for Change
Change is good. . ..isn’t it?
Try telling PX that, the newest management consultant at Premier Industrial Services and Solutions. He’s facing massive change, and doesn’t know how to cope with it. Firstly, there’s the change in what he does for a living. He’s used to being employed by a global corporation leading a team of people, but now he’s working in a small organization, depending on one person–himself. Then there’s the other big change–being paid for his advice. Sure, it sounds great, but is it all really champagne and roses? Not a chance. He’s working in the most difficult of arenas in modern times–manufacturing. And he’s learning one thing fast–people who run the organizations in this arena are brutal, and can carve a person up in the boardroom while buffing their nails. So isn’t that enough? Well no. There’s also his personal life, which is becoming more fraught every day, with no respite from his devoted wife, “the Dragon.” As if everything else wasn’t enough, she’s become the most powerful money reducing agent known to man, intent on generating a trade deficit the size of a continent. Surely help is available? After all, he’s part of an organization priding itself on providing the best business management advice money can buy, isn’t he? Yes. . ..well, the rest of the team can only be described as. . .. . . a disparate bunch. Take “the Master,” the man PX wants praise from, but who’s the hardest person he’s ever worked for. A man who has standards that only deities seem to meet. Or Jonny Horgan, the one man joke machine, who has three priorities in life; women, beer and doing whatever the hell Jonny thinks is fun. And of course, there’s Peter Perfect, the ice cool lord of perfection, who seems so good he can walk on water. Either PX will go mad doing a job that’s the most difficult thing he’s ever had to do, for clients too busy stabbing each other in the back to concentrate on the ethos of all businesses, making money, or he will dig deep and achieve the potential he hopes he has, and truly become “An Agent For Change. . .. . .”
