HOW ADAPTIVE IS YOUR ORGANISATION? What does an adaptive organisation look
like from the inside? How do you build one? Where do you start?

This book provides these answers and many more. Think of it as the
'Complete Leader’s Guide' to turning the organisation you have today, into
one that holds an adaptive advantage over its rivals. The Thrive Cycle,
and its original framework, will enable you and your organisation to
discuss, define, develop and measure adaptive capability in a meaningful
way. It crystallises the lessons of twenty years spent influencing,
cajoling and coercing large, complex organisations to adapt, and shares
the insights from a career spent in-between the organisational silos. The
result is a new, reality-based approach to one of the world’s biggest
challenges: CHANGE. Complete with Adaptive Audit and online tools, if
you’re a leader with the ambition, passion and strategic imperative to
create The Adaptive Organisation, this book will show you how.

Review quote

'This engaging and highly-readable book provides an innovative approach to one of the biggest challenges facing business today: managing relentless change. It offers a range of practical insights and tools which for me, makes it essential reading.' -- Keith Jackson Former CRO, Bupa Group 'The Thrive Cycle explores what it means to be an Adaptive Organisation in an ever-changing world. A highly relevant and timely contribution to the science and art of change leadership'. -- Richard Umbers CEO and Managing Director; Myer 'The Thrive Cycle is an actionable, easy to read guide to making positive change happen in complex organisations. Written by a seasoned change practitioner, this book is essential reading for C-suite and senior managers who are tasked with leading change and ensuring their business adapts to, and thrives in, an increasingly uncertain environment'. -- Tom Singer Former CFO, InterContinental Hotels Group 'Sometimes I read a business book and wonder how the author managed to pad out 250 pages with what is essentially one idea - but this book is different. The Thrive Cycle is chock full of sensible, practical tools borne out of real world experience and anchored in customer-centricity and employee engagement. Importantly, it shows how to achieve what is for many businesses 'the impossible dream' - being big and adaptive'. -- Chris Smedley CEO, Assure 'An invaluable read for leaders who want to make their organisations healthier and sustainable; indispensable reflection for those who think their organisation does not need to adapt...and a survival kit for those who consider themselves victims of change'. -- Domènec Crosas Director General, Sanitas Mayores 'The Thrive Cycle shows step by step, how to triumph when faced with the significant challenge of leading change in complex businesses. It is a must-read for executives and senior managers with responsibility for delivering sustainable results in constantly changing environments'. -- Di Fulton - Non-Executive Director, CoInvest 'So many "a-ha" moments in The Thrive Cycle for any leader who has experienced major organisational change. This practical and engaging book provides a comprehensive and flexible framework, supported by a range of useful, easy to apply tools. A must-read!' -- Gabrielle Prior - Former International Director of Operations Quality; AC Nielsen (now Nielsen Online)
