How is a company or non-profit organisation similar to a theatre company? Theatre companies must perform to an audience every night, even as they develop the next production simultaneously. Similarly, a company must keep itself running while proceeding through the process of change. For over three decades author Dutch Holland has been directing global firms to recognise change as constant within their organisations, and learn to effect and direct change. He has produced stunning results for companies, and now summarises the critical action plans companies need to address as they face change at a velocity previously unimagined. Holland helps managers, leaders, executives, trainers and consultants take practice actions to: understand change as theatre; identify where change is working - or not working appropriately; communicate vision, processes, procedures and performance tools, and run the business even as it's changing.
