Access the deepest source of inspiration and vision We live in a time of massive institutional failure that manifests in the form of three major divides: the ecological, the social, and the spiritual. Addressing these challenges requires a new consciousness and collective leadership capacity. In this groundbreaking book, Otto Scharmer invites us to see the world in new ways and in so doing discover a revolutionary approach to learning and leadership. In most large systems today, we collectively create results that no one wants. What keeps us stuck in such patterns of the past? It's our blind spot, that is, our lack of awareness of the inner place from which our attention and intention originate. By moving through Scharmer's U process, we consciously access the blind spot and learn to connect to our authentic Self—the deepest source of knowledge and inspiration. Theory U offers a rich diversity of compelling stories, examples, exercises, and practices that allow leaders, organizations, and larger systems to cosense and coshape the future that is wanting to emerge. This second edition features a new preface in which Scharmer identifies five transformational trends and describes U process case stories around the world. There are also eight color drawings by Kelvy Bird that capture U journey applications and illustrate the concepts in the book, as well as new resources for applying the principles and practices.

The Missing Link to Toyota-Style Success—LEAN LEADERSHIP Winner of the 2012 Shingo Research and Professional Publications Award “This great book reveals the secret ingredient to lean success: lean leadership. Not only is it a pleasure to read, but it is also deep and enlightening. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in lean: it’s both an eye opener and a game changer.” —Michael Ballé, Ph.D., coauthor of The Gold Mine and The Lean Manager “This will immediately be recognized as the most important book ever published to understand and guide ‘True North Lean’ and the goal of perpetual business excellence.” —Ross E. Robson, President and CEO, DnR Lean, LLC, and the original Director of The Shingo Prize “An excellent book that will shape leadership development for decades to come.” —Karen Martin, Principal, Karen Martin & Associates, and author of The Kaizen Event Planner About the Book: TOYOTA. The name signifies greatness— world-class cars and game-changing business thinking. One key to the Toyota Motor Company’s unprecedented success is its famous production system and its lesser-known product development program. These strategies consider the end user at every turn and have become the model for the global lean business movement. All too often, organizations adopting lean miss the most critical ingredient—lean leadership. Toyota makes enormous investments in carefully selecting and intensively developing leaders who fit its unique philosophy and culture. Thanks to the company’s lean leadership approach, explains Toyota Way author Jeffrey Liker and former Toyota executive Gary Convis, the celebrated carmaker has set into motion a drive for continuous improvement at all levels of its business. This has allowed for: Constant growth: Toyota increased profitability for 58 consecutive years—slowing down only in the face of 2008’s worldwide financial difficulties, the recall crisis, and the worst Japanese earthquake of the century. Unstoppable inventiveness: Toyota’s approach to innovative thinking and problem solving has resulted in top industry ratings and incredible customer satisfaction, while allowing the company to weather these three crises in rapid succession and to come out stronger. Strong branding and respect: Toyota’s reputation was instrumental in the company’s ability to withstand the recalls-driven media storm of 2010. But what looked to some to be a sinking ship is once again running under a full head of steam. Perhaps the Toyota culture had weakened, but lean leadership was the beacon that showed the way back. In fact, writes Liker, the company is “as good and perhaps a better model for lean leadership than it ever has been.” of innovation and growth. Yet, Industry Week reports that just 2 percent of companies using lean processes can likewise claim to have had long-term success. What the other 98 percent lack is unified leadership with a common method and philosophy. If you want to get lean, you have to take it to the leadership level. The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership shows you how.

Se lŐX factor degli show televisivi rappresenta il talento, ovvero quel quid che sostiene il vincitore, per il destino dellŐItalia la X non unŐincognita ma il condensato stesso delle sue potenzialit: un mix di intelligenza, creativit, gusto, capacit tecniche e artigiane che, sul ? lo del genius loci, possiamo chiamare Italian factor. Oggi, a dispetto di quanto si dice e si legge sul sistema Paese, esiste la possibilit concreta che lŐItalia e gli italiani giochino un ruolo rilevante in uno scenario globale di cambiamento. Il percorso del libro rende chiari ed espliciti gli elementi che da secoli limitano e plasmano il nostro carattere, per rileggerli come leve attraverso cui trasformare lŐitalianit e lŐÇItalian wayČ (il modo tutto italiano di fare le cose e quindi anche di produrre) in quellŐÇItalian factorČ capace di trasformare una vocazione psicologica e unŐattitudine culturale in fattore di moltiplicazione per il valore delle nostre attivit e delle nostre imprese. LŐottimismo che lŐindividuazione dellŐItalian factor ispira ha solide radici storiche che affondano nel Rinascimento; una dimensione psicologica che si gioca intorno alla peculiarit delle italiche virt; una dimensione socio-culturale ricca di elementi di cambiamento ad alta potenzialit. Ma soprattutto lŐItalian factor dimostra la propria forza dispiegandosi nella concretezza di una dimensione aziendale fatta di successi, come attestano Đ tra tanti Đ i casi di eccellenza di Brunello Cucinelli, Eataly, Ferragamo, Moleskine e YOOX.
