From the Back Cover:

Operating in a time of rapid and seemingly relentless change,today's healthiest organizations have the ability to continuouslyrenew themselves and thrive in a challenging environment. They arethe ones that know how to harness the turbulence all organizationsencounter and use it as a catalyst for creativity and innovation.They are the companies that will succeed in the long term. And yourcompany can be among them.

As an expert on corporate change and advisor to leadingorganizations around the world, author Stanley Gryskiewicz hasspent nearly thirty years observing and evaluating a variety ofcorporate cultures. Those that are most effective, he's found, areinvariably those in which creativity and innovation are allowed toflourish. Over the years, Gryskiewicz has witnessed and oftenhelped devise the many strategies and processes companies haveemployed to deliberately establish energetic, creative cultures.And now he's distilled the most successful of those approaches intoa dynamic process of cultural change he calls PositiveTurbulence.

Positive Turbulence begins with the recognition thatchange is inevitable. It then provides ways to keep changemanageable and apply it to an organization's strategic advantage.Asserting that creativity need not be random, Gryskiewicz outlinesa proactive process for bringing new information into anorganization, making sense of it, and translating it into novelideas that are both useful and actionable. Along the way, herelates specific strategies that individuals, teams, andorganizations can use to increase their receptivity to PositiveTurbulence and employ it effectively.

The author illustrates his points with a variety of examplesfrom history, from organizations large and small, even from jazzgroups. He also provides real-world examples of how NorfolkSouthern, Hallmark, and 3M have each used Positive Turbulence tobuild continuous renewal into their cultures. In short, Gryskiewiczgives you all of the information you need to institute PositiveTurbulence at your company-a process that will help ensure itsvitality in a hypercompetitive, rapidly changing world.
