Using ground-breaking modelling, Big Change, Best Path brings unique insights to the dynamics and process of organizational change, understanding success and failure, defining and describing the drivers and conditions of change, and the patterns and paths of organizational change. Author Warren Parry from Accenture Strategy shows that a whole new way of managing change is possible, from empirical benchmarking, predictive approaches that highlight the specific actions needed at any point of a change program, and visualization for senior managers to show how each part of an organization is responding. The author also challenges many of the myths of change management and the dynamics of how organizations respond to change, clearly showing the common pitfalls and misunderstandings. Big Change, Best Path explains a new, more analytical way and process for driving successful change, and presents a ground-breaking vision for the future of how organizations can become more agile and resilient.

In Managing Change in Organizations, Stefan Sveningsson and Nadja Sörgärde explore a broad range of perspectives on change management, encouraging critical reflection and making sense of a complex field of theories. Their unique approach based around three key perspectives of change will help students understand: How change is accomplished – the tool perspective What change means for those involved – the process perspective And Why is change initiated (and is it necessary) – the critical perspective This focus on the common how, what and why questions offers students the chance to learn pragmatic tools for managing change, as well as gain an in-depth understanding of different theories and their value. The book is complemented by a range of online resources including PowerPoint Slides, Multiple Choice Questions, and a selection of SAGE Business Cases and journal articles.

A model for developing the leaders and delivering the leadership results the world needs Leadership Results explores the fall of traditional leadership thinking and the struggling multibillion dollar leadership development industry that is failing to deliver results, and explains the mindset, skills, ways of being and methods that will get results in the new context and evolving paradigm. The Leadership Results model is practical and predictive, providing a way forward for companies seeking to build sustainable leadership capacity, develop individual leaders, boost employee engagement and deliver breakthrough results through shared and collective leadership. Actionable steps guide you through the process of evolving leadership culture to see increased productivity, growth opportunities and ensured profitability borne on a culture of trust, collaboration, fairness and a commitment to innovation and real prosperity. Expert analysis debunks pervasive myths and assumptions surrounding leadership, employee engagement, and talent development, while demystifying the role technology plays in innovation and progress. Leaders, coaches, trainers, OD practitioners, change agents, and students will find insightful guidance, thought-provoking discussion and illustrative case studies that will help them: Rethink leadership to make a stronger impact Take bold action to change the status quo Marry strategic and innovation leadership into a force for real change Stop making the same mistakes and start forging a new path forward From the heads of state on down, all levels of leadership are experiencing a rapid loss of trust and confidence — and the glaring absence of results that follows. Unethical business practices are costing more than five per cent of the global GDP every year; citizens around the world have lost faith in the public and private sectors; only 13% of employees are engaged at work — clearly, there is a severe lack of effective leadership. Leadership Results provides a practical way forward through this global quagmire, with a clear, actionable model for leadership that works.

This book gives definition to participatory practice as a necessary form of activism in development planning for cities. It gives guidance on how practice can make space for big and lasting change and for new opportunities to be discovered. It points to ways of building synergy and negotiating our way in the social and political spaces ‘in between’ conventional and often competing ideals – public and private interests, top down and bottom up, formal and informal, the global agendas which outsiders promote and the local needs of insiders, for example. It offers guidance on process, designed to close gaps and converge worlds which we know have become divisive and discriminatory, working from the detail of everyday life in search of beginnings that count, building out and making meaningful locally, the abstractions of the global causes we champion – poverty alleviation, environmental sustainability, resilience. Practice – the collective process by which decisions are negotiated, plans designed and actions taken in response to needs and aspirations, locally and globally – we will see, is not just about being practical, but more. Its purpose is to give structure to our understanding of the order and disorder in our cities today, then to disturb that order when it has become inefficient or inequitable, even change it. It is to add moral value to morally questionable planning practice and so build "a social economy for the satisfaction of human need." Practice in these spaces ‘in-between’ redraws the boundaries of expectation of disciplinary work and offers a new high ground of moral purpose from which to be more creative, more integrated, more relevant, more resourceful – more strategic.

Winner of Britains premier management book award. The Management Consultancies Association [MCA] Business Management Book of the Year "A really important book enjoyable, well-written inspirational a wake-up call for business!" The MCA Prize Judging Panel Every year corporations spend billions in pursuit of change. Some are successful. Many are not. Casting a critical eye over the big change efforts of more than 30 organizations worldwide, Paul Taffinder brings together the practical action steps needed for business leaders to develop a strategic and tactical route-map for transforming their firms. The route-map is developed from the S-curve principle popularized by Charles Handy and shows unequivocally that the time to initiate change is when you are at your most successful. He shows that real transformation demands an escalation of constructive conflict to produce and sustain the kind of radical change essential in organizations in a globalizing world. The executive actions to achieve big change across all sectors of business are constructed through detailed examples, international case studies and action lists. The authors conclusions are as original as they are insightful, and firmly supported by real world business sense. "Excellent Spending some time reading this book could be one of the best investments you make." Peter Ellwood, Group Chief Executive, Lloyds TSB "A must for CEOs. A powerful journey providing detailed lessons written in a clear and easy, readable style." Russell Evans, Group General Manager, GA Group "With his route-map, Paul Taffinder achieves what in many other books remains an empty promise. Brilliant insight inspiring A real eye-opener" Dr Siegfried Hoenle, Director, Warburg Dillon Read "Rich with practical lessons, this is a must read for all within organizations who are facing the daunting challenge of riding the many waves of change." Scott G. Isaksen, President of the Creative Problem Solving Group Buffalo, Former Director and Professor, The Center for Studies in Creativity, The State University of New York "As we approach the 21st century, this book delivers fascinating insights into state-of-the-art big change and as such is essential reading for managers in todays frenetic business world."

The Ten Commandments

The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. Sinai to Israelites, and they are changing it now. They are the foundation stones of Western Civilization. Given their staggering importance, you would think that all societies, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, would be intent on studying them closely. Sadly, this is not the case. Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted. But here's a simple test: Who among us can even name all of the Ten Commandments? And even among those who can name them, how many can explain them in a way that makes sense to the modern eye and ear? If you are a person of faith, this book will strengthen it; if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts; if you're atheist, it will test your convictions. For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments, as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them, it will be a revelation. That's a lot to ask of a little book, but the only thing that's little here is the length. The ideas are very big.

Living the God-Breathed Life is more about becoming rather than doing. It reflects a Jesus worldview that disdains religious zealotry and mere orthodoxy in spiritual experiences. Learning to be present with Christ at His table of bounty brings you a life full of peace, power, and presence. You are invited to dine in His presence of acceptance where you can let go of all your burdens and meet Him face-to-face for a heart-to heart relationship. Living the God-Breathed Life is divided into three inspirational parts: The Conversation—spiritual conformation The Table—personal transformation The Encounter—with your living Christ The God-Breathed life removes "What if", "I should" and "ought to" and invites us to a more face-to-face and hands-on experience of God; Living the God-Breathed Life is scripturally sound and consistent. It is the realm of life and living God always intended to enjoy with you. Insightful “Join the Journey” questions at the end of each chapter and an interactive final chapter guide you in experiencing the truths presented through powerful personal times with God.

A Little Book about Big Change We all want the same things. We want to live a life of purpose and meaning. We want to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren. We want to leave the world a better place. And yet we spend so much time wringing our hands over what’s wrong and not nearly enough time fixing those things within our control. John Kasich has walked the corridors of power both in the politics, as a former leader of Congress, governor of Ohio, presidential candidate, and in the private sector, as an in-demand public speaker, best-selling author and a strategic advisor to businesses and large non-profits. Yet he’s seen that the most powerful movements have started from the bottom up. Rather than waiting on Washington, the solutions happen once we become leaders in our own lives and communities. The strength and resilience of our nation lies in each of us. That’s what this book is about. In It’s Up to Us, Kasich shares the ten little ways we each can bring about big change. Taken together, they chart a path for each to follow as we look to live a life bigger than ourselves. Taken one-by-one, they can help to lift us from a place of outrage or complacency or helplessness and move us closer to our shared American dream.
