About this book

This book, written by an interdisciplinary team of authors, explores the transformation of organizations in today’s volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous (VUCA) world. It demonstrates the need to manage organizations in a dynamic way, and to revisit and in some cases reinvent working and leadership styles that seemed appropriate during past decades and centuries. In turn, the book puts forward a model based on three distinct pillars of organization and leadership to suit disruptive times: the concepts of 'Sustainable Purpose', 'Travelling Organization', and 'Connecting Resources'. These pillars challenge many of our traditional organizational patterns and meet the need for effective transformative approaches.

It is a particular pleasure for him to identify key challenges, to diagnose complex relationships and to assist in shaping the future. Gaining experience and learning something new are indispensable parts of his life, that is why he likes to seize new chances: on his way from carpentry to studies in social work, education and business administration, in various jobs in social work; during 10 years as manager (HR and logistics) in industrial and retail companies and since 1998 in consulting people, leadership teams as well as working teams and organizations that are all very different. Michael has co-authored several publications in the field of leadership and organizational development.
