A revolution is underway, and spreading fast. Organizations everywhere are boldly leading the change from the dead-end of “business as usual” to new strategies and transformative practices that promote a flourishing, sustainable world. Pragmatic and powerful, today’s most innovative leaders know that revolutionary—not incremental—changes in the way we live and work are necessary for their, and our, survival. Brimming with inspiring stories from around the globe, and organizations ranging from Alcoa to Oxfam, DuPont to GE, THE NECESSARY REVOLUTION clearly shows that ordinary people at every level within every organization have the ability and innovative spirit to do extraordinary things. By working collaboratively across boundaries, they are amplifying their creativity to find unprecedented solutions in an intensely interdependent world. THE NECESSARY REVOLUTION contains a wealth of strategies to help anyone, regardless of role or title, build the confidence and competence to respond effectively to the greatest challenge of our time. It is destined to become the essential handbook for everyone who understands the need to act and work together—now—to create a sustainable world for ourselves and the generations to follow.
