Alternative & New Age Management Concepts

In the rapidly changing environment of the 21st century, we need to question the efficacy of many traditional business models. Remarkable technological advancements have not only changed the way we communicate and conduct business, but also have empowered a generation of young, aggressive entrepreneurs and executives who aren’t satisfied with the status quo.

getAbstract’s commitment to bringing its customers the most current business knowledge includes the addition of hot-off-the-presses summaries that are noteworthy for their unorthodox approach and recommendations. Sure, maybe your organization has been in cruise control mode for years, churning out reliable goods and services, keeping your customers satisfied and turning a profit. But what if you could be even bigger and better? What if there are other ways to do business that you have never considered?

Serving a Purpose

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” represents the philosophy of numerous old-school executives who value dependability and functionality. At the same time, critics say, established patterns and modes of behavior often leave little room for creativity and innovation. The new age management concepts you’ll find in getAbstract’s collection challenge conventional beliefs and practices.

By working with getAbstract, you fling open the doors to an exciting, new educational venture for your company. Managers and employees can embark on a journey of informal, social learning that is guaranteed to broaden their knowledge and peak their curiosity. Reading about fresh ideas will invigorate your workforce, spark conversations and perhaps set the stage for meaningful organizational change.

Change is difficult for many employees – even for upper-level executives who understand its inevitability. Change management is always a significant challenge, because it typically involves modifying or transforming a system or process. You need a plan that you can execute realistically, while you minimize disruptions that can impact your daily operations. Employee resistance represents one of the major obstacles to organizational innovation.

Finding the answers to executing a smooth transition isn’t easy, but you’ll certainly be better prepared for the challenge when you can count on getAbstract as a dependable resource. Our comprehensive library features hundreds of high-quality summaries that focus on managing innovation and organizational change.

After all, it’s impossible to put a price tag on a successful innovation or change initiative that strengthens the viability of your organization and instills a sense of optimism and purpose in your people.
