To be published at Springer Nature in August 2022
Editors: Peter Wollmann, Reto Püringer
After the development and broad application of the Three-Pillar-Model (abbreviated: 3-P-Model) in the previous books 'Three Pillars of Organization and Leadership in Disruptive Times’, (2018) and the second book, "Organization and Leadership in Disruptive Times: Design and Implementation Using the 3-P-Model" (2021), a new book was written with a focus on one of the most important application fields: transformations. This book addresses an explicit demand expressed in a large number of C-Suite interviews: managing significant transformations in the private and public sector. The book describes what types of transformation have to be reflected, why transformations are crucial to our days, the triggers they have, and how they might be best managed from a theoretical and practical point of view - technically and with all people-connected soft facts. The book, which contains numerous use cases, was written by an international community of practictioners, experts and academics from different geographies, countries, public and private organizations, industries, and cultures, which guarantees the comprehensiveness and richness of the developed insights and the value of the presented use cases.
For a recap:
The first pillar – Sustainable Purpose – gives the direction. It creates the identity, the enthusiasm and the pride to be a part of something valuable – a company or institution – that solves a relevant problem in the world. It turns out to be even more crucial in the crises and to take more than before societal contributions into account.
The second pillar – Travelling Organization - is the key to pace with the VUCA world, especially in situations of global crisis' where travelling is no longer only an option. All types of organization have continuously to swing with the development of markets, technologies and society, political environment, sciences, exploring the land, instead of clinging to established structures.
The third pillar – Connectivity or Connecting Resources – makes the difference to Caesar’s and Taylor’s “divide et impera”. The synapses make the difference rather than the cells: The connections across sectors and geographies between market opportunities and social demands, political frameworks and scientific recommendations, business processes and experts’ skills, formal responsibilities and flexible role concepts.
