Change means different things to different people. Change. the debut book by business agility expert, Simon Powers, speaks to each of these meanings. It takes the reader on a journey through time to discover the patterns that have shaped our modern working world…

This is not just another business book. It’s a practical guide for a brighter future.

Be prepared to embark on an inward journey. You will examine the biases, prejudices, and limiting beliefs that get in the way of being open to new ways of working and creatively solving complex challenges. This book gives us the tools to improve our organisations and, by extension, our societies, and thus gives us hope for a brighter future.

The world is changing. Fast.  Companies all over the world are struggling to adapt to the extraordinary pace and magnitude of change.  There is an urgent need for change. We need to change the way our societies operate in light of issues like climate change, public health, and the economy. Like any organism, organisations and societies must either adapt to change or die. 

What makes Change. different to other business books?

Change. offers business leaders and change agents a compelling and practical approach to building organisations that are ready to succeed in 2022 and beyond. Of course, this book helps ensure the success of digital transformation programmes*. However, it also provides a new perspective for the reader and their relationships with others and at work. As a result, we are in a better position to address the most pressing problems facing our businesses and society. This includes problems related to public health, climate change, and education, both today and in the future. This is more than just another business book. It’s a must-have for any visionary leader, strategist or change agent looking to make the world of work a better place.

“Organisational change, like climate change, requires an interdependent consciousness and a shift in identity… we need co-operation, co-creation, and the ability to see resources differently. Instead of building walls, we need to be able to see each other as holding a key piece of the puzzle that when combined makes a better whole that serves us all.”
