WINNER 2017 Axiom Business Book Awards - Bronze Medal

How adaptive is your organisation? What does an adaptive organisation look like from the inside? How do you build one? Where do you start?

This book provides these answers and many more. Think of it as the Complete Leader's Guide to turning the organisation you have today, into one that holds an adaptive advantage over its rivals. The Thrive Cycle, and its original framework, will enable you and your organisation to discuss, define, develop and measure adaptive capability in a meaningful way. It crystallises the lessons of twenty years spent influencing, cajoling and coercing large, complex organisations to adapt, and shares the insights from a career spent in-between the organisational silos. The result is a new, reality-based approach to one of the world's biggest challenges: CHANGE. If you're a leader with the ambition, passion and strategic imperative to create The Adaptive Organisation, this book will show you how.

Importantly, it shows how to achieve what is for many businesses 'the impossible dream' - being big and adaptive'. -- Chris Smedley CEO, Assure
