John Wiley & Sons, Mar 30, 2010 - Business & Economics - 346 pages
"If you want to know how countries, companies and individuals can master the winds and the waves that will dominate the next decade, this is the book for you."
—Rupert Pennant-Rea, former editor of the Economist, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England
"'If leading your organisation sometimes feels like changing the front wheel of a bicycle whilst toy are still pedalling it as fast as you can, this is a book you should read."
"Beyond Crisis is full of compelling reasons, clear advice and practical models to help almost any enterprise remain viable beyond the deeply unsettling systemic failures that characterise today's business environment."
"We are in uncharted territory. There are few people who any longer think that the world post-crisis will be anything like the world before. Ringland, Sparrow & Lusting provide a clear description of the way that leaders need to think in this new reality. In doing so, they give us hope."
The next decade will present organisational challenges on an unprecedented scale.
Beyond Crisis shows how you can build a 'purposefully self-renewing organisation' which will survive and succeed in the midst of this chaos. The book shows how financial and economic crisis has blighted organisations in every sector, and then provide a range of tools and future scenarios for diagnosing problems and creating solutions.
This is a welcome dose of clarity in uncertain times.
