About this item

Building Smarter Organizations is the antidote to your zombie organization.

The world is a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous place. To respond to it, businesses need to be able to make quick and effective changes. Too many modern businesses have succumbed to the culture of mindless "standard operating systems" that limit their capacity to learn and change. These zombie organizations have somehow shifted their focus from excellence and industry leadership to simply shuffling on and surviving (though not necessarily eating brains).

Building Smarter Organizations is not a manual for hiding from the apocalypse; it's an effective cure. It's an actionable reference for the best research in management and organizational culture and a guide to rebooting the company's systems to include:

  • a "share-learn" mindset (rather than a "tell-do" mindset)
  • a communication platform that is connected and accessible (rather than siloed and restricted)
  • decision management that is decentralized and organized (rather than centralized and individual)

Don't just shuffle on. Don't just survive. Give your organization the remedy to confront new conditions and make quick, effective changes.
