What is this thing called 9Stucks?
9Stucks is a dynamic business diagnostic tool. It identifies nine distinct yet interrelated business challenges that cause a company to underperform.

The Stuck Cast


People are the driving forces behind many of the 9Stucks; they are the stuck Actors and Actresses who have the lead and supporting roles in an organization’s stuck story.

These Stuck Actors and Actresses:

  1. cause or create the stucks
  2. enable the stucks
  3. maintain the stucks
  4. CAN CHANGE the stucks

Do you recognize any of these people?

Cast Member One:  The Stuck Creator (SC)

The SC knowingly or unknowingly had a direct role in creating the 9Stucks.

Cast Member Two:  The Stuck Enabler (SE)

The SE has a direct or indirect role in allowing the stuck to continue. They want to keep the status quo.

Cast Member Three:  The Stuck Antagonist (SA)

The SA is an active sort of person.

  • He likes the stucks
  • She likes the chaos
  • He doesn’t want change
  • She will do all sorts of things to keep the stuck intact

Cast Member Four:  The Stuck Bystander (SB)

The SB is the clueless bystander. The SB is around the stucks, but doesn’t truly appreciate the stucks’ impact on their organization or themselves.

Cast Member Five:  The Stuck Warrior (SW)

The SW wants to get the stuck(s) fixed.

An outside SW could be a trusted advisor, Director, friend, consultant, or family member.

An inside SW could be YOU!

The Stuck Warrior wants to make lasting change happen.

Take action!
