Unfortunately, this is already quite long, again, so the next time I will tell you about how I studied affirmative interaction with the help, support, and involvement of many other inquisitive souls. Yes, this was my dissertation, but I also put my money where my mouth was, walked the talk, after completing my studies, and led a reorganizing effort in a small manufacturing company to be more efficient, with higher morale, and oh yes, to make more profit. Honestly, my goal was to do my job the best that I could, and not to prove a theory. However, this was an overlay on everything else I had learned in a twenty year career of managing technical enterprises, so how could I resist, believing as I did that I really was on to something?
