Overview


This is a timely and groundbreaking book from the bestselling author of "The Fifth Discipline" series and "Presence". "The Necessary Revolution" reveals how corporations and organizations are, in the face of looming environmental crises and pressure from social issues, finding solutions that ensure both long-term survival and real-time business success. "The Necessary Revolution" is destined to become the essential handbook for everyone who understands the need to act and work together now to create a sustainable world for ourselves and the generations to come. A revolution is underway, and spreading fast. Organizations everywhere are boldly leading the change from the dead-end of 'business as usual' to new strategies and transformative practices that promote a flourishing, sustainable world. Pragmatic and powerful, today's most innovative leaders know that revolutionary - not incremental - changes in the way we live and work are necessary for their, and our, survival. Brimming with inspiring stories from around the globe, and organizations ranging from Alcoa to Oxfam, DuPont to GE, "The Necessary Revolution" clearly shows that ordinary people at every level within every organization have the ability and innovative spirit to do extraordinary things. By working collaboratively across boundaries, they are amplifying their creativity to find unprecedented solutions in an intensely interdependent world. "The Necessary Revolution" contains a wealth of strategies to help anyone, regardless of role or title, build the confidence and competence to respond effectively to the greatest challenge of our time. It is destined to become the essential handbook for everyone who understands the need to act and work together - now - to create a sustainable world for ourselves and the generations to follow.
