There is a reason why some companies are more successful than others. Authors David Trafford and Peter Boggis argue that this is the case because there is something that determines the destiny of the organisation, that is, the ‘default future.’ The authors explain that this is a place companies will end up if they do take any action other than that currently planned. Beyond Default shows the reader how to identify the ‘default future’, helps the reader determine if the future is acceptable, and how to improve the future, in order to sustain success. Trafford and Boggis have used their experience in management consultancy to create a well-written and insightful book that takes an innovative approach to management and sustaining success in business.
The world is changing and this has caused many businesses to become out of step with corporate social responsibility. However, the best organisations have managed to navigate this with a ‘Single Organising Idea’ (SOI). This concept helps organisations deliver sustainable economic and social benefit, unite people, inspire innovation, and create a positive reputation. In this book, Neil Gaught uses his business experience to show the readers the importance of an SOI, and how they can adopt it in their organisations. He argues his case through detailed stories, and informative case studies. Gaught has produced an interesting and no-nonsense book, which provides an answer about how to deal with the challenges of today.
