Welcome to my web site. My name is Fred Nickols and I help managers and execs improve the performance of their people, their processes and their organizations. For more about that, click on the Services link.
This site is home to more than 100 articles dealing with various aspects of work, performance, organizations, change and management. It is also home to The Knowledge Worker's Tool Room, a collection of one-page tools for use by knowledge workers. My view of knowledge workers is that they are people whose work requires them to apply and sometimes create knowledge in order to produce results. Samples from the more than 30 tools currently in the Tool Room are shown in the thumbnail images above. Clicking on them will display larger versions. Visit the Tool Room to view the tools with accompanying text. The one-page tools link to longer pieces if you want more information.
Below are links to the five most viewed articles on this site.
Contact me if you would like to discuss how I can help you improve the performance of your people, your processes or your organization and how the tools on this site can be put to use in your work or at your organization. I am available for presentations, workshops and consulting. I am particularly interested in helping you make use of the Solution Engineering Process and the Target (GAP-ACT) Model.
