Peter Scott-Morgan, author of the best-selling, The Unwritten Rules of the Game, and his colleagues at Arthur D. Little have discovered that Fortune 500 companies are currently spending twice their profits on change initiatives; yet they are only satisfied with half the results. The obvious question is “How can we stop this?” The paradigm–shifting answer, based on a six year study of Fortune 500 companies, is: concentrate on maximizing stability within a changing environment—don’t fixate on change. This book explains how by developing the six competencies needed to achieve dynamic stability—the management stabilizers of strategy, tactics, operations, and the enabling stabilizers of teamwork, quality, and communication—companies can avoid being swamped by the disruption of unending turbulence.

From the Back Cover:

An entirely fresh approach to managing in a changing world It's a fast=moving, cyber-linked, overcommunicated world out there these days. Change seems to happen much more rapidly and with far less predictability. It's no wonder the store shelves are crammed with books for beleaguered managers who are desperately trying to navigate through this torrent of change. This one is different from the rest. Here is a book that shows you how to turn your organization into one that continually meets the challenges of change, in a business world strewn with the survivors of yesterday's fads. The Accelerating Organization features the cutting-edge, experience-tested principles being taught by Arthur D. Little and Innovation Associates. It's not another take on reengineering nor a rewarmed learning organization tome. It's the best of both methods--and a whole lot more. Learn how you can: refocus strategic goals and galvanize for never-ending change; Get to know your organization's unwritten rules and use them to gain leverage; Change policies and structures simultaneously, while avoiding performance disruption; Make your people the agents of change, not its victims; Instill a continuous learning mindset aimed at sustaining high performance. Accessible and practical, this whole new approach to managing in an ever-changing world provides you with the knowledge and tools to ensure that your organization is flexible, nimble, and ready to handle whatever might come next.--.--.be it a minor tremor or a seismic shift.
