Managing Value in Organisations

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Managing Value in Organisations offers new ideas, starting by acknowledging that old thinking is now the first barrier to progress. It experiments with value creation to build a climate where new ideas have a chance to live. Those succeeding have the right mind-set: using new ways to organise effort, thinking and value, to produce independent self-managing staff, commitment, growth and agility.
The author, Donal Carroll, worked with five organizations to create new management, business and learning models that multiply trust, ensure significant collective learning and deeper customer insight. He provides evidence that, together, these models get organisations to their next stage of development faster.
