Who Moved my Cheese is a story about two mice and two “miniature humans” looking for cheese in a maze. The book aims to provide a perspective on how to handle change and has been used in many organizations for this very purpose. The plot is based on the mice having simple brains but good instincts. They are often wrong but progress through trial-and-error. Miniature humans have complex brains and therefore the ability to simulate events in advance. This ability can be effective but also limiting.
