Teal Dots in an Orange World

In the last century, changes in technology have driven massive developments in the social economy. The Fourth Industrial Revolution demands new approaches to organizational structures and teams. A paradigm shift is emerging, putting engagement, relations, inclusion and freedom at the centre. We need small self-managed teams, in a team-of-teams structure to be relevant to employees and customers, and in order to adapt to a changing world. In his second book, Erik Korsvik Østergaard draws on the workings of Frederic Laloux, and his 2014 title Reiventing Organisations. Laloux discusses the five organizational stages to the modern workforce; the Red, Amber, Orange, Green and Teal stages. And with these writings,Østergaard presents arguments towards how the classical corporate structure at the Orange stage, has experienced a rise in teal dots, or rather, neo-modernist forms of team-oriented organisms, which express a reorganisation for the future workforce.

Pax Japonica

Japan, the world's third largest economy and its largest creditor nation, has been in crisis for more than two decades. Its economy has been depressed or in recession in much of that period, its banking sector in a critical state, and its public sector burdened by recurring fiscal deficits and mounting debt. Today, the hegemonic role in global trade and financial markets has been assumed by the USA and China. Yet, this book argues that a possible future Pax Japonica - one in which Japan will overcome its paralyzing debt and once again play a leading role in global finance - can become a reality. Leading international strategist Takeo Harada provides new and astounding insight into Japan's hidden role as designated controller of large - often secret - funds kept for the purpose of rescuing humankind from ultimate disasters. For this reason, Japan's role in the global economy can never be under-estimated and remains critical to its progress.

High Frequency Change

We are dizzy trying to keep up with the constant flood of newness across every aspect of our lives. And it's clear that some of our biggest companies are facing similar challenges. Each week another big brand name fails. Why is this?

Change is like a wave: it has both amplitude and frequency. The last century was about change of great amplitude, big waves washing over the whole society. But this century is about high frequency change: rapid, smaller waves, each powerful enough to disrupt an industry. This book explains how we can understand high frequency change, what drives it, and how we must respond by changing the way we run our organisations - and our lives.
