From the Inside Flap

The Organization of the Future 2

The world has changed dramatically since the best-selling The Organization of the Future was published in 1999. More than ever before, organizations and leaders need guidance for meeting the challenges of today's complex environment in order to thrive in the future.

Filled with wisdom and insight on the most important issues facing organizations today, the twenty six chapters in The Organization of the Future 2 offer the wisdom of some of the most recognized thought leaders of our day. These experts share their unique vision of what the organization of the future should look like and what organizational leaders must do to survive in the tumultuous twenty-first century.

The book describes how tomorrow's organizations can chart the path toward growth and prosperity in rapidly changing times and includes amazing examples of how organizations from different sectors have created cultures that are empowering their employees and transforming their industries and communities. The contributors offer varied and diverse views on the organization of the future—for entrepreneurs to large corporations, nonprofits, and universities—including three different yet complementary approaches to inclusion, integration, and horizontal organization.

The final section of the book focuses on the leaders of the organizations of the future and shows how they can make a critical difference in the success of their enterprises.

From the Back Cover

Praise for the Previous Edition

"The Organization of the Future is required reading. If you don't use this book to help guide your organization through the changes, you may well be left behind." —Nonprofit World

"A book to visit occasionally for something new to stretch our understanding, to think about, and to integrate into our work. This is a treasure trove of some of the best thinking today on leadership, management, and strategy. If we use it as a self-paced seminar on how to advise, create, and lead the organizations of our future, we will be better equipped by far than most of our competitors." —Journal of Management Consulting

"Editors Hesselbein, Goldsmith, and Beckhard have brought together the latest views of noted experts about the future of human enterprise in the Peter Drucker context of government, business, and community. This volume is highly recommended for organizational executives, academics, and advanced students of management." —Choice

"If you're interested in what tomorrow's organizations will look like and what challenges our business leaders will face, this book is a must-read. Anyone seeking a glimpse of the future will find this collection informative and thought-provoking." —Personnel Psychology

"Avoiding platitudes, these wide-ranging essays provide a wealth of innovative thinking on leadership and management strategy." —Publishers Weekly

This is a good overall look at how organizations must change for the future. The Disney and Girl Scouts chapters (Leader-written) chapters were the most helpful to me. The former because of the creativity used and treatment of all employees and the latter because it is a non-profit which looks at the world differently than the for-profit world must.
