Summary 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 firm's current state and future direction. Using this book as a guide, people in business can redesign their work (in collaboration with those around them) to create a future they believe in.
