Über diesen Titel


"Making it happen is Obeng’s constant refrain and his books are an antidote to the dryness of much managerial theorizing. Old World they are not." — Financial Times "At last, ground rules from a leading management thinker who puts his own theories into practice before taking them out to the world." "We knew our business practices were not as effective as they had once been. Now we know why. The New World creates a whole new set of rules." "Now I understand why our Old World approaches are not yielding as much as they used to." "To lead the world you must think in a New World way. New Rules for the New World provides the ideas and guidance to make it happen...and happen...and happen again." "You can’t have global leadership without leading thinking and leading behaviour. New Rules for the New World is a short cut to the front." "Eddie Obeng... a man to watch for the millennium" — Human Resources

From the Inside Flap:

New Rules for the New World Even if you have read every book on the shelf, and taken the best available advice from inside your organisation and from consultants, and put in place a painstakingly crafted plan for implementing strategic change, and motivated your colleagues and staff behind the plan...the chances are that it will all go horribly wrong. It nearly always does. New Rules for the New World is about what goes wrong and why, the path from good (and often correct) intention to disaster. It is about the bumpy road from a great idea like ‘Why don’t we benchmark against our competitors?’ to complete industry failure, to Queen of the Pigs (you benchmarked against organisations that are themselves failing). And it’s about how to avoid that road. This is a book of stories. Each tale paints a picture of good intentions gone wrong. Through the stories you will meet a cast of characters familiar to anyone in business - the Empowering Manager, the Uncertain Strategist, the Global Communicator and the Merged Chief Executive. Each story has a moral, a new rule for the New World. A practical rule which would have prevented failure. The Financial Times calls Obeng an agent provocateur. New Rules for the New World will provoke you into your future. The Tales Prologue to the Cautionary Tales The Tale of the Empowering Manager The Uncertain Strategist’s Tale The Tale of the Customer-focused Manager The Tale of the Lost Self-directed Team Leader The Tale of the Global Communicator The Tale of the Self-starter’s Growing Pains The Strategic Change Implementer’s Tale The Organisation Development Manager’s Dimensions The Tale of the Informatised Manager The Merged Chief Executive’s Tale The Re-engineer’s Quest The Business Bench-marker’s Tale Epilogue The Rules Say ‘AND’ not ‘OR’ Assume Fair=Different not Fair=Equal Change Dependence to Interdependence Do Nothing which is of No use Stakeholders rule OK! Make time fit! Chunk It or Junk It! All Constraints into Meatspace Unlearn Everything! Don’t change anything! Loop It up! Go Virtual!

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
