Emergent: Ignite Purpose, Transform Culture, Make Change Stick Kindle Edition
Emergent provides a handbook for navigating – and thriving in – the new cultural paradigm. More than a simple DIY for change, this book empowers organisations to diagnose change risk, address current shortcomings and adapt to the increasing current away from hierarchies to autonomous and interdependent networks. Unguided, most fail in their attempt; this shift exposes huge skills deficits, a lack of engagement, lack of value and meaning, market reach, penetration and more. Here, a twenty-year veteran of brand and culture transformation outlines a unique governance framework and blueprint for implementing and co-creating your own cultural shift. Methodologies from crowdsourcing and social movements are adopted as tools for initiating change and creating cultural cohesion around a higher purpose, and essential skills and tools help equip organisations and individuals for the emergent future.
Today's workplace demands are creating extraordinary challenges for organisations; power is shifting, and the spotlight has forced businesses to engage with stakeholders in more meaningful ways, and to acknowledge a need for radical ‘humanization' of the workplace. To drive successful change you need to spark a movement. This book provides a way forward through the transition, with expert guidance and a clear, actionable framework for implementation.

Herein lies the problem: why work efficiently, smartly, and ingeniously to put yourself out of a job and thereby feather the nests of absentee owners in far way places. The more an organization streamlines/Taylorizes[Fredrick Winslow Taylor] its systems; all the more programmable.
As I read Emergence, the more I likened it to an Orwellian script that says one thing; while doing its opposite. The purpose is not more human. Despite paid-off Supreme Denial judges telling the citizen, turned consumer, turned commodity; corporations are NOT human.
For humans, it is not inter connectivity; it is, in a real sense - that all life is interrelated. All men are caught an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny, whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. I cannot be what I ought to be until you're what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality[MLK].
So the frame from which I read this was that nature is purposely being phased out; where man/machine is being phased in. There need to be a paradigm shift from a virtual wealth system based upon debt-based money on an inhuman planet - towards one based on real living wealth, upon a living planet, Earth[Change the Story, Change the Future: A Living Economy For A Living Earth by David C. Korten/Feb 2, 2015].
Despite my personnel frame of reference, the author does an excellent job to relaying his premise, in a step-by-step analyses, comprised in three parts: Part One, Innovation; Part Two, Transformation and Part Three, Evolution. Very smart, up-to-date, using all the newly minted technologies and buzzwords - to weave his thesis into a coherent work for the reader to understand.
In conclusion, I would suggest the reader bear in mind, several contrary viewpoints from which these analyses and concepts presented.
