A Better Way of Doing Business?

This book offers a thoroughly researched and accessibly written account of the John Lewis Partnership. It describes what the JLP is, how it works, and what other businesses can learn from it.

The US/UK model of the firm, with its emphasis on shareholder value and its openness to the market in the buying and selling of businesses, is prone to a number of problematic consequences for employees, suppliers, and sometimes share-holders. 


Management in Singularity

There is no plan, there is only organizational adaptation to any situation.

In scientific and technological developments there is an accelerator active with a speed that has never been seen before. Innovations succeed each other in a rapid tempo; it’s not just a perception, it is reality. And these accelerators can be found in all fields of science. The innovations are driven by supercomputers (like IBM’s Dr. Watson), new technologies 


Sense and Respond

New technologies enable organizations to observe customer, employee, and stakeholder behavior in real time; communicate internally at extraordinary speed; and innovate continuously. ‘Sense and Respond’ explains how these technologies are being harnessed, and presents detailed success stories of the “sensing organizations” that are constantly learning and adapting to feedback.


Inclusive Leadership

The most successful organisations are those with the most diverse and engaged workforces. Studies show an 80 per cent improvement in business performance among those with high diversity levels. When people feel included and able to reach their full potential, they are more engaged, more productive and often more creative.

Inclusive Leadership will help you drive culture change using organisational development principles.
