商品の説明

内容紹介

To the outside world, Australia-based Very Important Corporation is a thriving and successful company. What the world doesn’t know is that Bruce Bottomline, the COO, is on the brink of quitting because he knows in his heart that the company’s culture is driving it headlong toward its own demise.



Bruce is a cofounder of this company with long-time friend and CEO Helen Hardcharger, so he doesn’t want to abandon their dream. But he can’t see any way to fix the problem.



Fortunately for Bruce and all of his partners and employees, fate has planned a chance meeting on an airplane between him and Sam Sherlock. Sam introduces Bruce to the concept of UGRs, or unwritten ground rules. It turns out that at the Very Important Corporation, complaining in meetings is pointless because no one tackles the issues. And employees only get visits from their boss if something is wrong. Unwritten ground rules like these need a serious overhaul. This is the vehicle for change, and Bruce comes away recharged and prepared to put the company’s corporate culture back on a track.



Learn from Bruce’s mistakes and triumphs how you, too, can address your company’s UGRs and revitalize its culture.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Entertaining guide to a powerful change tool 2016/8/21
投稿者 Nick Bush - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
I was drawn to this book as a result of being someone who has, for large chunks of my career, worked on projects that have an element of culture change. As a result I know how difficult it can be to deliver any kind of change or improvement without a corresponding shift in culture. I also heard co-author Steve Simpson give a brief but fascinating talk on culture in the context of customer service a few years ago and have followed his and Stef du Plessis' thinking via their monthly newsletter ever since.

I came to this book then with a sense of trepidation: would the appealingly simple concept of 'unwritten ground rules' (UGRs) turn out to be a another piece of consulting smoke and mirrors and, more worryingly, would a fictional work get a real sense of what it takes to achieve a shift in culture in real organisations? I'm glad to say that in both cases my fears were unfounded: this is a profoundly simple tool for getting to the root of culture change and it's vividly described here.

I had a bit of a problem initially with the apparently broadly drawn main characters: company CEO Helen Hardcharger and COO Bruce Bottomline - Dickens the authors ain't - but as the story of Bruce's attempts to get the Very Important Corporation to face up to the choking effects of their culture I recognised a distillation of some hard-won experience in the corporate trenches and some of the real personal challenges that leaders face in trying to effect change.

The authors use the story as an effective way of getting across the main elements of their approach and despite a commendable economy in the telling - you could easily read this on a flight or long train journey - they pack in enough detail on the tools and techniques to enable a suitably enthused change agent to apply the technique in their own organisation. My only criticism is that it would have been nice to have had more sense of how the Very Important Corporation's change played out below the senior management level but that aside this is an important and valuable contribution to the world of culture change.

The bottom line: buy it, read it, pass it on.
5つ星のうち 5.0 How to (re)build a strong workplace culture! 2016/7/31
投稿者 Edgar Valdmanis - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
If you're struggling with workplace culture, organizational challenges or similar issues, this book is for you!
The authors have long careers behind them in working as advisors to corporations across the globe, on these issues.
They have now described the challenges and possible solutions in the form of a novel, a good one at that.

The story describes a situation that is familiar to many, a successful company gone wrong - mostly because of internal problems. Lack of communication, infighting, internal backstabbing - the list goes on.
Although not all of us have experienced all of this, we have all encountered parts of these internal "breakdowns", and often lack of solutions.
The novel takes us through the "how to" solve it all, step by step.

It is well written, and describes the various steps excellently.
If you work in any kind of managerial position, I would advise that you read this. Even if your current workplace has few problems and everything seems fine. The working world is now revolving so rapidly so that no one really knows what's next. There is no real difference between the public and private sectors here.
In order to survive the changes, you need a strong workplace culture. Which, as said, is described here.
Highly recommended!
5つ星のうち 5.0 Great addition to any leadership training program. 2016/9/13

Improving the hidden culture of any business should be key to corporate management. Leadership training programs are a given in today's business world and understanding the UGR's of that business should be a major part of that training.
How to identify and offer continuous improvement to business by utilising the identification processes established in this easy to read and understand book would be a brilliant addition to any training library. With each page you begin to understand and identify your current culture and how the 'around here' is applied. Not only can you identify the opportunties, this book shows you how to create success.
We all want to work in an environment that offers continuous improvement and success for all. This book is the first step in assisting our management team understand what is really going on and how to make an improved difference.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Definitely worth it 2016/8/3
投稿者 Jason Buchanan - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
In the world of business, everyone seems to be talking about Culture, but when you scratch the surface it is a topic which is highly confusing for many. Many people talk about improving it, but few are able to articulate how. Many ‘experts’ accidentally make things worse.

The thing I like about this book is that it tackles this complicated subject in a way that delves into the real issues that influence company performance. With their Unwritten Ground Rules, the Authors are on to something that every business leader should consider. It is obvious the Authors have expertise in the subject. The case-study style is helpful, and they have revealed the type of detail that makes reading this a must for anyone who wants to be part of a successful company in the future.

Highly recommended.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Every Organization could Benefit 2016/8/13
投稿者 Jeffrey S. Dorman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Some of us have known for decades that Unwritten Ground Rules (UGRs) are often the shackles that keep an organization from flourishing. Simpson and Du Plessis have now made this information available to everyone. This quick read is filled with insight and reveals how to discover UGRs and how to deal with them. My 30 years of experience in leadership and as a consultant has convinced me that EVERY organization -- small businesses, corporations, non-profits, churches -- would benefit greatly from uncovering, wrestling with, and replacing their negative UGRs. Yes, it is possible to turn a culture and improve working conditions, productivity, and the bottom line! Read this little gem.
