Who Moved My Cheese is a business parable about how people can react to change. It is an easy read with a very clear message and everyone will equate to one or other of the characters in some situations.

It's the story of some mice and some people who are faced with change. The source of their happiness (in this case cheese though it could relate to anything, such as customers) is suddenly removed.

What the characters do next is the whole purpose of the book. The Mice, Sniff and Scurry, just got on with looking for new cheese. The people, Hem and Haw, couldn't believe the cheese had gone so they looked for it. Then they ranted and raved about the injustice of it all....this is not the way things are supposed to be. Then ....well you will have to read the book to find out how it turns around.

Great read, well written, generated a lot of conversations amongst the team and ended up in a really positive attitude to change.
