Über dieses Produkt
As we face times of rapid social and technological change, the future may seem like a horizon approaching too quickly. In a few years, almost everything will be different: what we do, how we do it, and why we do it; how we produce and consume; how we conduct research; how we teach and learn; how we share information, communicate, and cooperate; how we work--and how we live. How do we deal with these dizzying transformations in business, politics, and society? As management expert Fredmund Malik shows, great changes also open up great possibilities, pushing aside the old and creating opportunities for the new. Management, as Malik understands it, is the task of taking advantage of these possibilities. This book is a call to clear-sightedness and personal courage among all managers and leaders. It is a chart for navigating the Great Transformation21, Malik's paradigm for understanding this new world; it is a chart for navigating the future as an open horizon.

Navigation is the helmsman's art: how to identify our current position, determine our destination, and steer our ship towards it.
The high art of navigation is the ability to get our bearings in unknown territory - that is, when we are faced with uncertain locations, moving targets and a variety of possible routes.
Most organizations today confront such a "New World." This book describes the new methods of navigation required in the New World, including principles of thought and rules of action in conditions of uncertainty and great complexity.
The New World is unknown to us in many respects. So what can we nevertheless know? Perhaps we know much more already than we are aware of.
We know, for instance, that the new will be complex. Managing complexity will be the greatest challenge. This will be true for organizations of every kind: commercial enterprises and hospitals, public authorities and schools, cities and states. We know that all these organizations need to function in conditions of growing complexity; it is also true that this very complexity will enable them to function better and better, and in ever new ways. This book describes the methods and tools to handle complexity, and how systems-cybernetic management helps us master complexity.
As such, we are able to navigate through periods of change despite all the uncertainties we face. With each step we take we will learn more, for that is how complexity-compatible control methods with appropriately designed feedback loops work.
The New World is born from the Great Transformation21, a term I coined in 1997 for the ongoing fundamental change processes across society. It frees us from the organizational and managerial limitations of the Old World, allowing us to function better and to think in new ways and design new things.
It is a principle of mine not to publish any of my books until their content has proven valid in years of cooperation and discussions with hundreds of man -
a gers - clients as well as friends - in various top management bodies. I owe my sincerest thanks to all of them. I would also like to thank Jutta Scherer for her insightful translation work, as well as my long-term publisher, Campus Verlag. Specials thanks to my colleague and friend Keith Roberts for reviewing the English manuscript with a critical eye, as well as to Annaliza Tsakona for her comments and to Tamara Bechter, Senior Editor at Malik Institute for her contribution to structure and formulate this book.
