KNOWledge SUCCESSion is a pragmatic exploration of how to leverage projects as generators of new knowledge and capability development to sustain success. It is structured to build from current knowledge foundations to connect highly interdependent aspects of development work in our complex emergent world. This enables us to more effectively drive continuous improvement and competitive advantage at personal, team and organisational levels.
A wide range of concepts are brought together in a logical framework to enable readers of different disciplines to understand how they either create barriers or can be harvested to generate synergistic opportunities. The framework builds a way to make sense of the connections and provides novel paths to take advantage of the potential synergies that arise through aligning the concepts into a portfolio of strategic projects. The insights are practical enough to apply whilst being theoretically robust.
They stimulate current and emergent leaders to ask the right questions of their project teams to engage with them. This will enhance to leadership and coaching outcomes with their teams and more effectively and guide them to strategically develop the knowledge and capabilities for sustained strategic success
KNOWledge SUCCESSion is intended for executives and developing professionals who face the challenges of delivering business benefits for today, whilst building the capabilities required for an increasingly changing future. The book is structured to build from foundational requirements towards connecting the highly interdependent aspects of success in an emerging complex world.
