“Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson is an allegory for organizational change.
The story is about two mice living in a maze. The are fed cheese every day in the same location … one day the cheese is gone and we read about the different reactions of the mice.
The lessons are:

Adapt To Change Quickly
The Quicker You Let Go Of Old Cheese, The Sooner You Can Enjoy New Cheese
Move With The Cheese
Savor The Adventure And Enjoy The Taste Of New Cheese!
Be Ready To Change Quickly And Enjoy It Again
They Keep Moving The Cheese.
