In today’s knowledge-, wisdom-, and information-based world, the challenge facing leaders and organizations is to be able to obtain employee commitment and to apply that dedication to constant improvement and change. In a world where technology is rapidly improving and knowledge is increasing exponentially in virtually every field, the ability to adapt and to innovate is essential to organization success and individual development.

This book looks at continuous improvement at the individual, group, organizational, and societal levels and identifies commonalities and keys to success. It adopts a “transformative” perspective towards leadership, management philosophy, duties owed, and the obligation to constantly change. The authors/editors have written extensively about the need for leaders and organizations to refine their approach to change and improvement and this book combines their insights into one consolidated explanation.
