 I had trouble applying this book in a practical sense in that, while the Star model is an interesting model to think about how to structure an organization, most organization change I have worked through has started with a specific business issue that needed to be addressed.

A computer has a clock, which synchronizes the speed of the input unit, output unit, arithmetic unit, and memory unit.

All of the units participating in advertising, customer management, new product development, and supply chain management have to synchronize around increasing clock speeds. The ultimate target is real time."   * "Attain Real-Time Decision Making: The second organizational challenge is to increase the speed of decision making, often referred to as increasing the clock speed of the organization.
