Leading In An Age Of Disruption: The Book To Future-Proof Businesses Against Robots, Brexit And Climate Crisis

Businesses are going through deep challenges. New developments in technology along with political and environmental instability are already transforming the way businesses operate. Among all of those, geopolitical change can devastate unprepared businesses, such as a no-deal Brexit threatening to cost businesses £27 billion. It is also predicted that 5 million people in England are at high risk of losing their jobs to automation. Likewise, over 200 of the world’s largest listed companies forecast that the climate crisis could cost them a combined total of almost £790 billion.

In this global age of disruption from artificial intelligence, Brexit, climate crisis, trade wars and changing employee demands, future organisational change is not avoidable. The effects of disruption will be immediate, with consideration and preparation being paramount for the survival of organisations and the leaders of tomorrow.

Leading and Managing Change in the Age of Disruption and Artificial Intelligence is the essential guide for management in the new economy written by Dr Mathew Donald, a leading academic with over 30 years of business experience. The book brings the topics of management, leadership and organisational change into the future for leaders and managers of organisations, arming them with case studies, exercises, tools, tables and analysis to assist with preparation for organisational change.

The book expertly tackles modern disruption, ranging from EU destabilization, rebalancing world powers, financial trade barriers and the influence of technology. It provides practical insights and strategies to help managers and leaders to future proof organisations of all sizes for the wave of disruption on the horizon, which is threatening large scale loss of jobs, occupation and even whole industries.

In a time of change, Dr Mat looks at the changing demands of managing a modern workforce, from the skilling your force now in areas such as data analysis, to adapting to the demands of a millennial workforce for flexible working and the adoption of corporate social responsibility to maintain values in times of tumultuous change.

Leading and Managing Change in the Age of Disruption and Artificial Intelligence is an imperative read to futureproof organisations, as it provides the skills to critically think about what the future holds and to prepare your organisation for whatever disruption is around the corner.
