About this title

Synopsis:

Change on the Run
Leading a transformation can make or break your career. But business in the e-world is in constant, rapid flux powered by technolgy and globalizing markets, and every leader-- without exception-- will be faced with managing a major change at some time. Everyone is at risk. E-world leadership is transformational leadership and this book is about the six keys to winning in this turbulent world. Change on the Run: Competing Through e-Leadership provides hands-on guidance you will need when you face those make-or-break opportunities.
-- from the Introduction to Change on the Run

From the Inside Flap:

All firms have been through significant transformation in the last two decades, but the pace will continue to increase in the emerging world of e-business. So how do companies win in the race to change?

Leaders in the e-world will use the ability to transform their organizations as an offensive competitive weapon, no longer just changing in reaction to events, but actively seeking to create even more turbulence and to upset their compititors. There are strong indications that this is just what firms such as Cisco are attempting to do.

To conduct an offensive change strategy, or even to survive in such a world, leaders and managers throughout the organization must have transformation skills as a fundamental part of their kit bag. Change on the Run: Competing Through e-Leadership shows how to create a cadre of individuals who are ready, willing, and able to take on the career challenge of running a significant change in a turbulent environment.

But you cannot stop the world while you change the business. Successful transformational leaders are able to manage all-encompassing change while keeping the business running at full tilt. How do they do it? Change on the Run explains how to apply six key leadership skills that drive extraordinary results in the turbulent e-busines world.

  • Get the 60 percent premium enjoyed by firms skilled in complex change, by applying appropriate approaches to different types of change.
  • Make profits resilient to turbulence and maintain shareholder value while managing disruption.
  • Speed up communication and results, even saving up to 50 percent in total time elapsed for implementation of your strategic vision.
  • Learn how to harness the market-facing experiences of every individual, crucial to fast-moving, knowledge-intensive e-business.
  • Build critical change agent skills throughout the organization, eliminating the top problem in making change happen.
  • Embed leadership practices that have saved major corporations billions of dollars.
