Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The Organization of the Future 2 builds on the success of first bestseller, offering insightful wisdom on the most important issues facing any organization today and into the future.

With twenty inspiring chapters, this book celebrates the wisdom of some of the most recognized thought leaders of our day, emerging and established experts who share their unique vision of what the organization of the future should look like and must do to survive in the 21st Century.

Major changes have occurred in the world of Organizations since 1997. Not since the Industrial Revolution has the speed of development been so fast or have the environments organizations operate in been so turbulent. At the end of the 20th Century, globalization and the development of the electronic world and the impact of all of this on our societies and how we work, was just becoming evident. Now that we are firmly in the 21st Century, new realities and the future is a bit more clear. Multinational mega organizations, like Walmart and Microsoft, have emerged and in some industries there has been major consolidation through mergers and acquisitions yet at the same time some smaller and midsized companies have flourished. New models like dispersed leadership and management have blossomed with outstanding success. In many cases, we have moved way beyond the ideas of horizontal or flat organizations. Focusing on working better as teams and empowering staff closest to customers to make important decisions has also resulted in unfounded success. Many pyramids have been turned upside down but some organizations still hold on to old ways and they are in danger of distinction in the new world order.
