Accelerating global change is creating an increasing need across all industries for "bottom-up" organizations, where the knowledge and creativity of those at ground level is harnessed and shared to fuel initiatives at all levels of the business. Spectacular powerhouses of value when properly managed, the delayered and shifting structures of bottom-up organizations can also become destructive energy whirlwinds which rip organizations apart. Deriving its ethos, structure and core values from an IMD Executive Development course and featuring case studies including Citibank, AT&T and Shell, this book explains what a bottom-up organization is and why these energy-rich structures are the key to value creation in the future.
