Description

The rapid pace of life, work and business — ever increasing — has some people excited and inspired, some fearful and some in denial. It is timely to look at the effects of speed on the fields of management, leadership, strategy, innovation, culture. What are the opportunities, problems, outcomes and innovations that arise from speed and rapid change at work? This broad-ranging book will look at integral aspects of speed at work and offer guidelines for dealing with this rapid pace of change. Contributions include: Shifts at Speed by Bernard Salt, High-velocity Organisations by Bernard Stapleton and The Art of Slow by Geoff Small.
