Managing at the Speed of Change
IN THIS SUMMARY
Written a decade ago but still very useful for today's world, this book will help you if you need to know: Why do some people absorb change quicker and adapt faster than others? Why do some companies flourish during turbulent times while others flounder? Why software systems changes may cause less havoc than moving the paper clips and envelopes to the other room? With key insights into the fear of change many of us encounter, and many important lessons to understanding how humans, the most controlling type of species on the planet, can better work with change when it happens. When living beings cannot adapt, they cannot survive. Our children's future is more uncertain than ever, our lives are more complicated with all the new technology presented to us, and like the old adage states, "the only thing constant is change". Human beings and organizations need to know how change affects everything, and what we know today can never really prepare us for tomorrow.
