Overview

Best Practices in Leadership Development and Organization Change offers a practical resource for organizations that must become more effective, productive, and profitable in an increasingly challenging economy. Based on an extensive research study performed by the Best Practices Institute, this book draws on the findings from eighteen of the world’s best organizations which have used leadership development and organizational change program design and development to achieve their strategic business objectives.

In this important book, successful organizations—including well-known companies such as Agilent Technologies, Corning, GE Capital, Hewlett Packard, Honeywell Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, MIT, Motorola, and Praxair—share their most effective approaches, tools, and specific methods for leadership development and organizational change. These exemplary organizations serve as models for leadership development and organizational change because they

  • Commit to organizational objectives and culture
  • Transform behaviors, cultures, and perceptions
  • Implement competency or organization effectiveness models
  • Exhibit strong top management leadership support and passion

Best Practices in Leadership Development and Organization Change includes innovative practices in areas such as product development, work team development, return on investment calculations, implementation of continuous assessment and evaluation metrics, self-expression workshops, integration of the whole system, and practical uses of post-modernism and Eastern philosophy to build consensus.  In addition, the book outlines a step-by-step, six-phase system—Business diagnosis, Assessment, Program design, Implementation, On-the-job support, and Evaluation—that is designed to bring about relevant and sustainable organizational change.
