Creating organisational transformation:
Change cannot be thought of as a single, standardised process and companies
should use a range of tactics to engage all employees as early as possible.
Western companies face a worldwide talent crunch
and it is recommended to build "umbrella brands" for talent retention and to
accelerate leadership development by giving people more responsibility sooner.
Finally the authors emphasize the need for companies to partner with
universities to build talent appropriate to their needs.
