leadership
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

While the management world has been focused on solving problems, it should be working to maintain effectiveness and organizational health, says Naomi Stanford. She believes organizational health - an organization's ability to function effectively and change appropriately - can be sustained if managers take preventative action to maintain effectiveness rather than waiting for problems to arise and dealing with them as things to go wrong.

Organizational Health takes an informed look at the critical and interdependent elements of an organization that must be maintained in a healthy state for managers to meet their business goals. Topics covered include: the understanding and assessment of organizational health; control methods such as corporate governance, ethics and compliance; maintenance and development including organizational design and change management; sustainability including carbon footprint and business ecosystems; the indicators of health and dysfunction.

Each chapter includes input, reflective questions, case studies and an exercise for readers to work with in their organization so they can learn by doing. One of the first to apply these ideas at an organizational level, this book explains that maintaining an organization's health is an ongoing process with no secret formula - just paying attention and planning.
