Product description

The secret of achieving and sustaining organizational excellence revealed In an ever-changing world where only a third of excellent organizations stay that way over the long term, and where even fewer are able to implement successful change programs, leaders are in need of big ideas and new tools to thrive. In Beyond Performance, McKinsey & Company's Scott Keller and Colin Price give you everything you need to build an organization that can execute in the short run and has the vitality to prosper over the long term. Drawing on the most exhaustive research effort of its kind on organizational effectiveness and change management, Keller and Price put hard science behind their big idea: that the health of an organization is equally as important as its performance. In the book's foreword, management guru Gary Hamel refers to this notion as "a new manifesto for thinking about organizations." The authors illustrate why copying management best practices from other companies is more dangerous than helpful Clearly explains how to determine the mutually reinforcing combination of management practices that best fits your organization's context Provides practical tools to achieve superior levels of performance and health through a staged change process: aspire, assess, architect, act, and advance. Among these are new techniques for dealing with those aspects of human behavior that are seemingly irrational (and therefore confound even the smartest leaders), yet entirely predictable Ultimately, building a healthy organization is an intangible asset that competitors copy at their peril and that enables you to skillfully adapt to and shape your environment faster than others-giving you the ultimate competitive advantage.

Oxfam Bookshop Herne Hill

Situated between the London boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, Herne Hill first appears on maps as farm and woodland in 1798. The bookshop is located opposite Brockwell Park, home to the beautifully restored Art Deco Lido, originally built in 1937, and well situated for a stroll to Dulwich picture gallery. Also notable are the unique Velodrome, dating back to 1891 and redesigned in 1948 for the Olympic Games, the grade two listed Half Moon Pub boasts a Boxing Gym run by former European and British Champion, Clinton McKenzie and the Carnegie Library, one of over two thousand public libraries built by the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Prominent among Herne Hill's most famous former residents are John Ruskin, the influential Victorian socialist thinker, art critic, poet and conservationist.
