What do employees expect from the organizations they support? How can organizations maintain stability in times of massive change? These are the questions modern organizations face as they struggle to grow and evolve. The Organization of the Future offers timeless responses from such leading authorities as Peter F. Drucker, C.K. Prahalad, Nathaniel Branden, Lewis E. Platt, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Jay R. Galbraith, and Deepak Sethi. Their incisive essays reveal:

– How to build "know–how" and "know–who" to develop successful teams

– How to prepare for "breakdowns" and create the nimble, change–adept company

– How to attract, motivate, and retain the best employees

– How seven basic policies can lead to high performance and high self–esteem

– How to support work–life balance and provide flexibility for knowledge workers

Each essay provides observations that will help leaders in business, nonprofits, and government keep their organizations healthy, competitive, and poised for the future.
