Introducing: The Culture Game Book

Are you looking to implement Agile ideas in your organization? Are you a manager … a person who has a staff and convenes meetings? If so, this is your book.

As it says on the back cover:

“The overall pace of change, driven by technology, is literally changing the game of business. The “command-and-control” business culture is being replaced by Agile, self-organizing structures that create rapid learning across the enterprise. Organizations that do not adapt are being replaced by those that quickly respond to change. At the root of this Agile attitude is a culture of rapid organizational learning.

“Managers who grasp this reality are the new leaders. In The Culture Game, executive coach and author Daniel Mezick offers you sixteen proven team-learning practices, and a proven strategy for socializing them.

“Managers who convene meeting and hire people have the power to greatly influence culture in organizations. This book provides the tools to do exactly that. The Culture Game is the reference manual and toolbox for management “culture hackers”, those innovators and change-makers who are focused on creating a culture of learning inside their teams … and the wider organization.
