More Than a Motorcycle is the story of the purposeful transformation of an American icon. While the business press was celebrating Harley-Davidson’s remarkable financial turnaround in the late 1980s, the company’s leader, Rich Teerlink, was deeply concerned. He knew that the storied motorcycle maker faced a new and even more formidable challenge: maintaining and improving upon its success in the absence of an external crisis. Partnering with longtime organizational consultant Lee Ozley, Teerlink did something extraordinary: he began building a different Harley. The new Harley would be driven not by its top executives, but by its employees at every level. What happened over the next twelve years is the stuff of turnaround legend. While the media has long celebrated Harley, this candid inside account goes behind the headlines to reveal the highlights and lowlights, the victories and setbacks, and the breakthroughs and dead ends experienced by Teerlink, Ozley, and others as the company engaged in this change effort. Part corporate biography and part memoir of a rare CEO/consultant partnership, the book chronicles Harley’s difficult journey from a traditional “command-and-control” culture to an open organization in which employees no longer went along for the ride, but took new levels of responsibility for charting their course.
