Change expert Nick Tasler proposes an alternative to the “change by addition” strategy that bogs many organizations down. His “decisive” scientific method advocates codifying clear “sprint” priorities and creating a deprioritized “wait list.” His “ADAPT” framework allows you and your team to focus on new priorities. By signaling your unambiguous intent, and putting selected items on hold, you clear the way and streamline the workload. Through engaging stories and quirky analogies, Tasler promotes pragmatic leadership agility and openness to opportunity. getAbstract recommends his process to leaders navigating the shoals of modern organizational management.
In this summary, you will learn
- How “change by addition” and “change by decision” differ, and
- How to use the “ADAPT” – “anticipate, decide, align, permit” and “test” – framework to lead meaningful change.
