What Matters Now
IN THIS SUMMARY
In What Matters Now, author Gary Hamel presents compelling reasons to change the management model of the 20th century in order to succeed in the 21st century. The traditional management style has grown outdated and is incapable of producing an organization that can compete in a highly-competitive global marketplace that requires constant change and continuous innovation. Most companies focus primarily on the present, and embrace consistency, top-down control, and profits at any cost. However, these conventional leadership and management ideologies and strategies have resulted in the mass-production of unimaginative and unresourceful organizations. The solution is five-fold: companies must reshape their organizations to value integrity, embrace innovation, become adaptable, pursue passion, and rewrite the management creed.
