Constructing a new order of things, which Edmondson and Reynolds call building the future, is the focus of this book. It explores how to bring complex new systems into being, particularly systems that transform human experience and make the world more livable and sustainable. Intense collaboration across professions and industries is vital to come up with new ideas and innovative solutions. This requires practicing new forms of leadership that enable complex, team-based, whole-system innovation. To reveal how pioneers build the future, Edmondson and Reynolds study a startup's long and innovative journey in the smart-city industry, which uses digital, information and communication technologiesto enhance the quality and performance of urban services, They follow the leaders in this company, Living PlanIT, through cycles of hope, exhaustion, disillusionment, pragmatism, and renewal in creating the city of the future

Building the future : big teaming for audacious innovation by Amy C Edmondson( file )
5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Machiavelli famously wrote, "There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."That's what this book is about--innovation far more audacious than a new way to find a restaurant or a smart phone you can wear on your wrist. Amy C. Edmondson and Susan Salter Reynolds explore large-scale systemic innovation that calls for "big teaming": intense collaboration between professions and industries with completely different mindsets. This demands leadership combining an expansive vision with deliberative incremental action--not an easy balance.To explore the kind of leadership required to build the future we need, Edmondson and Reynolds tell the story of Living PlanIT. This award-winning "smart city" start-up was launched with a breathtakingly ambitious goal: creating a showcase high-tech city from scratch to pilot its software--quite literally setting out to build the future. This meant a joint effort spanning a truly disparate group of software entrepreneurs, real estate developers, city government officials, architects, construction companies, and technology corporations. By taking a close look at the work, norms, and values in each of these professional domains, we gain new insight into why teaming across fields is so challenging. And we get to know Living PlanIT's leaders, following them and their partners through cycles of hope, exhaustion, disillusionment, pragmatism, and renewal. There are powerful lessons here for anyone, in any industry, seeking to drive audacious innovation

Organizational learning in the face of ambiguous threats by Amy C Edmondson( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Is there a disaster waiting to happen in your organization? Is your organization poised to react if you sense one looming? In this stimulating presentation, Professors Amy C. Edmondson, Michael A. Roberto, and Richard M.J. Bohmer use NASA and the Columbia space shuttle to look at the causes of organizational disasters. How does the makeup of an organization contribute? How does an institution allow accidents to occur? Professor Roberto takes a close look at NASA's recovery window -- the period of time between when you see an ambiguous threat and when that threat turns into a major accident. Using the Columbia incident as a backdrop, he then applies the lessons learned to management in all types of organizations and outlines factors at three levels that can cause organizations to underreact to the ambiguous threats that might presage a disaster. Professor Bohmer discusses how team-level and organizational factors -- including design, structure, and culture -- can contribute to a lack of leadership and communication, leaving the organization ill-prepared for unexpected threats. Professor Edmondson envisions an alternative response, where the organization can develop a culture that allows it to respond effectively in a recovery window. This is how learning organizations are created -- not by using the right words, but through practice. And if organizations cannot move into this mode themselves, they need to be led, pointing to the very important and central role of leadership in engaging people, giving them structure, and providing an environment in which they can flourish

When solving problems prevents organizational learning by Anita L Tucker( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
We propose that research on problem solving behavior can provide critical insight into mechanisms through which organizations resist learning and change. In this paper we describe typical front-line worker response to obstacles that hinder their effectiveness and argue that this pattern of behavior creates an important and overlooked barrier to organizational change. Past research on quality improvement and problem solving has found that the type of approach used affects the results of problem solving efforts but has not considered constraints that may limit the ability of front-line workers to use preferred approaches. To investigate the actual problem-solving behavior of front line workers, we conducted 197 hours of observation of hospital nurses, whose jobs present both clinical and system problem-solving opportunities. We identify implicit heuristics that govern the problem-solving behaviors of these front line workers, and suggest cognitive, social, and organizational factors that may reinforce these heuristics and thereby prevent organizational change and improvement
Sustainable cities : oxymoron or the shape of the future? by Annissa Alusi( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Two trends are likely to define the 21st century: threats to the sustainability of the natural environment and dramatic increases in urbanization. This paper reviews the goals, business models, and partnerships involved in eight early "ecocity" projects to begin to identify success factors in this emerging industry. Ecocities, for the most part, are viewed as a means of mitigating threats to the natural environment while creating urban living capacity, by combining low carbon and resource-efficient development with the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to better manage complex urban systems
Learning to trust and trusting to learn : contrasting models of intervention research in organisation behaviour by Yvelines) Groupe HEC (Jouy-en-Josas( Book )

Confiance et recherche-intervention by Yvelines) Groupe HEC (Jouy-en-Josas( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in French and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Afin d'étudier les relations entre confiance et recherche-intervention, nous proposons de reconnaître l'existence de degrés ou niveaux de confiance et de de [sic] distinguer la confiance dans les intentions. La grille de lecture présentée dans ce papier prend également appui sur une analyse des fonctions de la confiance : la confiance comme pré-requis, comme conséquence et comme obstacle à la recherche-intervention. Nous illustrons nos propos à l'aide de la théorie de l'apprentissage organisationnel développée par Chris Argyris et de l'analyse sociologique des organisations proposée par Michel Crozier

Leading and Working in Teams by Amy C Edmondson( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Organizations thrive, or fail to thrive, based on how well the teams within those organizations work. What does it take to create a high-performing team? Based on her years of research working with teams across different industries, Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson reveals how high performance arises when teams are encouraged to take risks, fail, and learn from those small failures, a process she calls "teaming." In this course, she outlines what leaders can do to create the right environment for teaming and explains the responsibilities of individual team members to speak up, collaborate, experiment, and reflect
