Practical tools for business leaders at all levels to measure innovation capability, accelerate growth and strive for success in this disruptive age from an established organizational expert.
Schulich Exec Ed Facilitator Brett Richards launched his first book at the Nadal Management Centre earlier this year.
In today’s market, where speed and performance are critical to success, CEOs and executives face an unprecedented number of challenges to continue differentiating themselves from competitors. At the same time, current methods of understanding and assessing an organization’s true ability to grow through innovation and transformation are outdated. In Grow Through Disruption: Breakthrough Mindsets to Innovate, Change and Win with the O.G.I., Brett Richards, PhD, a seasoned practitioner and researcher with more than 20 years of experience in individual and organizational effectiveness, offers a new, comprehensive system for 21st century companies to measure growth and adapt to the changing business landscape.
After years spent working with companies around the world, Richards came to the conclusion that some of the most important data to an organization’s success is invisible and intangible, making it very difficult for leaders to make decisions based on what is really happening. In response, he began to develop the Organizational Growth Indicator (OGI), a system of quantifiable metrics to shed light on these previously hidden factors. Crucial to a company’s success, these mindsets uncover the previously hidden people and culture dynamics that both support and constrain an organization’s ability to grow, allowing managers to make even more intelligent decisions and, ultimately, strengthen their business.
Harnessing decades of experience and system development, Grow Through Disruption: Breakthrough Mindsets to Innovate, Change and Win with the O.G.I. is an essential read for heads of global corporations to leaders of small and midsize businesses to develop more vibrant, fulfilling and lasting organizations.
