Overview

Here, authors Lisa Friedman and Herman Gyr, internationally respected organizational change consultants, define the Dynamic Enterprise as one whose people can look into the future, see the big picture, and create the right changes.

Friedman and Gyr describe how the Dynamic Enterprise empowers its people to build clear, collaborative strategies and translate them into action. And they present tools and strategies for making critical decisions in the midst of chaos, as well as for creating an environment that enables people to effect coordinated change at every organizational level.

This comprehensive guide presents a compelling, integrated change model—The Enterprise Development framework—that can be used with a wide range of change initiatives such as strategic business planning, organization, redesign, new technology integration, culture change, team building, and leadership development.

The Dynamic Enterprise offers common-sense models and specific guidance that leaders, managers, change agents, and other stakeholders can use to move their companies forward. It gives everyone in an organization the means to communicate effectively with one another, clarify their positions, and reach agreement on the organization's current state and future direction. Using this book, people in business can redesign their work to create a future they all believe in.
