IN THIS SUMMARY

Change is occurring at an increasingly accelerated pace. Businesses are challenged at every turn to stay competitive and grow amidst unprecedented turbulence. In Accelerate, John Kotter explains that the hierarchical structure most businesses operate under today is ill-equipped to manage this change. Kotter advocates companies resurrect their earlier “networked” business model and transition to a dual system in which a hierarchical structure runs parallel to a networked structure. This dual system provides the best of both worlds: the predictability and stability that are hallmarks of a hierarchy, and the creativity, innovativeness, and rapid response to change inherent in a network.
