Publisher's Summary

Your Company Isn't Fast Enough. Here's How to Change That. 

The traditional hierarchical organization is dead, but what replaces it? Numerous new models - the agile organization, the networked organization, and holacracy, to name a few - have emerged, but leaders need to know what really works. How do you build an organization that is responsive to fast-changing markets? What kind of organization delivers both speed and scale, and how do you lead it? 

Arthur Yeung and Dave Ulrich provide leaders with a much-needed blueprint for reinventing the organization. Based on their in-depth research at leading Chinese, US, and European firms such as Alibaba, Amazon, DiDi, Facebook, Google, Huawei, Supercell, and Tencent, and drawing from their synthesis of the latest organization research and practice, Yeung and Ulrich explain how to build a new kind of organization (a "market-oriented ecosystem") that responds to changing market opportunities with speed and scale. While other books address individual pieces of the puzzle, Reinventing the Organization offers a practical, integrated, six-step framework and looks at all the decisions leaders need to make - choosing the right strategies, capabilities, structure, culture, management tools, and leadership - to deliver radically greater value in fast-moving markets.

Feels like it was written in another language

This book is based on mainly Chinese companies that copied their American counterparts. The flow of the language is odd and I’m not sure how valid it is for a free market economy: while the Chinese may have a market oriented system, the market is much different from the west and I don’t know how much it can apply. Lots of terms with few actual examples.

A must read!

This is a very practical guide to reinventing your organization with excellent references from specific organizations. It really allowed me to think differently about the challenges my organization is facing. The real life examples from the six companies referenced in the book provided insights to approach these challenges differently in today’s fast changing environment.
