Or­gan­i­sa­tion Design for Uber Times,

Public Sector Manager - - Book Reviews - by Mark Bussin

“Do­ing busi­ness in Uber times” has be­come a metaphor for do­ing busi­ness in a dig­i­tal world of al­go­rithms, au­to­ma­tion, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and non-stop dis­rup­tion. Or­gan­i­sa­tions ev­ery­where are be­ing forced to op­er­ate in a fast-chang­ing, high-speed en­vi­ron­ment. Busi­ness mod­els are be­ing chal­lenged and trusted val­ues ques­tioned, while op­er­a­tional mar­gins are se­verely de­pressed.

Never be­fore has or­gan­i­sa­tion design been so im­por­tant for busi­nesses, HR and lead­ers. De­mo­graphic shifts, sus­tained mar­ket growth glob­al­i­sa­tion and cul­tural and gen­er­a­tional dif­fer­ences are forc­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to re-think the way they en­gage with their peo­ple.

Or­gan­i­sa­tion Design for Uber Times will help you an­tic­i­pate mega-trends and changes; learn how to iden­tify your or­gan­i­sa­tion's strat­egy, mar­ket po­si­tion and where it is in the busi­ness life cy­cle; un­pack well-known or­gan­i­sa­tion design mod­els; learn how to design for Uber times; and un­der­stand what makes a high-per­form­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion, among oth­ers.

The book will give you the nec­es­sary ideas, in­sights and tools to design an op­ti­mal, ag­ile or­gan­i­sa­tion that will thrive and grow in volatile times.
