"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." -Publisher's Weekly
