“Organizational Jazz concerns extraordinary performance in the workplace through extraordinary leadership - an issue for every business in today's economic climate - we thoroughly recommend that you take a look.”
- Walker Wayland Chartered Accountants - Mt Pleasant WA
Constant, rapid and unpredictable changes, both internal and external, are challenging the time-honoured business models we are taught to follow - as we strive to manage our complex, evolving organizations.
Drawing on the science of complex adaptive systems, this book offers a lens through which we search for new ways of thinking about, and working with, the unpredictability of our dynamic complex world.
The success of an organization usually depends on those working closest to the value-adding end of the business. It is those employees and their immediate leaders, who seem to have the greatest impact on the success of an organization. Managers-as-leaders can ease the way for those who depend on them for support and encouragement. This exceptional book provides structure, applications, workshops and tips:
'Jazz' as a metaphor, conjures stability in the tune and uncertainty in its improvisation. Here we blend theory and practical examples from organizations that have gone beyond limited expectations - by creating environments for innovation and productivity where people work with dignity in the creation of wealth for all.
