Overview

Virtually all organizations face critical transition points in their life cycle, when they must change how they play the game, or perish. Flamholtz and Randle focus here on three critical moments: the move from entrepreneurial to professional management, when a firm reaches a stage of growth where it can no longer operate in an informal, unstructured way; the revitalization of an established business that is losing ground to competitors; and a radical change in a business vision. Changing the Game provides a comprehensive framework and a set of tools for the strategic management of organizational transformation. It will help managers meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive business environment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In our dynamic world, every organization has to face the reality that it is either going to change the game or be changed by the game. Eric Flamholtz and Yvonne Randle have helped PowerBar do the former and I'm excited to see their tools available to everyone through this book."—Brian Maxwell, CEO, PowerBar Inc.

"A clear, crisp guide to achieving the level of transformation necessary to become or remain a market leader. Flamholtz combines the need for strategic focus, alignment, discipline and entrepreneurial energy at the enterprise level in a very special way. I believe that he is on to something very powerful. Dealing with change will be with us forever."—J.M. Nugent, Worldwide President and CEO, Neutrogena Corporation
