That's Not How We Do it Here: A Story About How Organizations Rise, Fall - and Can Rise Again

Author(s): John Kotter


A new business parable from John Kotter - the leading authority on leadership and change, and bestselling author of Our Iceberg is Melting That's Not How We Do It. Here is the story of a clan of meerkats who live in the Kalahari. Well organised and efficient, the colony enjoys many years of successful growth, until it suddenly comes under threat from a new form of predator and is forced to rethink its organizational structure. John Kotter uses this charming parable to explore why organizations often struggle no matter their past success, and why they fall. Kotter shows that by embracing reliability, efficiency, speed and agility, and building passion, discipline and personal growth, organizations can once again prosper, fulfil their mission, create great jobs and services and generate wealth.
