A companion website offers a wide range of additional resources, including case studies, expanded audio/video interviews and activities.The essential reading for those looking to transform schools and more effectively meet the needs of today's learners.

              In a world where current political climates and management cultures make risk aversion commonplace, Transforming Organizations shows how large and cumbersome organizations can change and transition to suit the needs of our rapidly evolving economies. This new title looks at how o...rganizations and their leaders can adapt to an increasingly volatile and uncertain operating environment through the 4 Cs: Creativity, Critical reflection, Communication and Collaboration. Based on extensive research in both the education and business sectors, the authors show how the 4 Cs can be embedded and enacted in many different types of organizations to make them more effective and responsive to emerging challenges, threats and opportunities. The book makes clear links between leading and learning, because leadership is no longer (if it ever was) just a role for CEOs, CFOs and senior managers. For organizations to be flexible and agile in the 21st century, the majority of the employees must exercise leadership - something that can only happen if learning is standard feature of that leadership, AND incorporates key 21st century skills (the 4 Cs themselves). However, there is a marked gap between companies knowing what they should do in order to `be flexible', `be creative' and `have clear channels of communication', and how to make that happen in reality. Written for those who have become disillusioned or frustrated with business practices that cannot meet the fast-moving demands of the 21st century, Transforming Organizations provides evidence and inspiration for doing business differently. The strategies and approaches discussed have been taken from the authors' work in real businesses, both large and small, and are supplemented by a number of illustrative case studies.

This book looks at how organizations and their leaders can adapt to an increasingly volatile and uncertain operating environment through the 4Cs: Creativity Critical reflection Communication Collaboration Based on extensive research in the education, organizational and business sectors, Michael Anderson and Miranda Jefferson show how the 4Cs can be embedded, embodied and enacted in many different types of organizations to make them more responsive to emerging challenges, threats and opportunities. Transforming Organizations highlights clear links between leading and learning - because leadership is no longer (if it ever was) just a role for CEOs, CFOs and senior managers. For organizations to be flexible and agile in the 21st century, all employees must have the opportunity to exercise leadership. But this can only happen if deep learning is a standard feature of a leadership approach that actively and deliberately incorporates key 21st-century skills - the 4Cs themselves. There is a substantial gap between companies knowing what they should do to be flexible, creative and have clear channels of communication, and how to make that a reality. Transforming Organizations provides the evidence and inspiration necessary for doing business differently. Written for those who have become disillusioned or frustrated with business practices that cannot meet the fast-moving demands of the 21st century, the book provides strategies and approaches developed from the authors' work in real organizations in order to implement change and see organizations transform for the better.
