In a global age of disruption, future organisational change is not avoidable. Organisational effects will be immediate and transformational across companies, and due consideration and preparation ahead of these changes may be paramount for the survival of organisations and their leaders of tomorrow. 

Leading and Managing Change in the Age of Disruption and Artificial Intelligence modernises the topics of management, leadership, and organisational change to inform those leading and managing organisations into the future. The book covers modern disruptions ranging from Trump and other geo-political changes, to Brexit, new currencies, trade wars, and even knowledge mobility. It also considers the broad scope of potential impacts posed by artificial intelligence.  

With insights and strategies that the modern manager of the future can implement in their daily work, this book provides critical thinking that will future proof organisations with practical models.

‘We are living in a VUCA world; volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. A time in which we may see and feel a shift of paradigms. This book describes global transitions which are influencing our businesses worldwide. Mat Donald points out global issues such as EU destabilization, rebalancing world powers, financial trade barriers and the influence of technology. These changes cannot be managed in a traditional and linear “cause and effect” manner. Leadership in the new age requires skills that are more holistic, dialogic and take a systems and design thinking approach where the left and right brains act together. This book is excellent for students, managers, leaders and management consultants who work, or are starting to work, in an international business environment and want to understand “a world that is on the move.”’ - Jos Pieterse, PhD, Institute of Business Management, Education and Technology, Hogeschool Fontys
