Four books:

Open Teams: Connecting people to the difference they can make

The aim of an organisation is always to optimise systemic performance, which is when all parties are working optimally together, at all times, within every area and aspect of the organisation. The essence of probably all leadership is about how one can persuade, without threat or violence, large numbers of individuals to come together and work coherently towards a clearly defined vision, performing systemically. We suggest in this book that as classic silo organisations are no longer capable of properly systemic performance, that new organisations based around the concept of open-team leadership, but working with the same core information, are necessary within our increasingly disruptive business environment.  The book is about the organisational design of how to lead multiple teams in their optimally sustainable co-creation and delivery of value. It presents a process for building organisations of powerful ‘open’ self-directive teams who collaborate around shared purpose, connecting everyone to the difference they make in the world.

Beautiful Unique: the Value Frame workbook is designed principally to accompany consultants, coaches and company leaders in their work with the Value Frame. Although the concept of the Value Frame is straightforward, the use of it demands application, experience and skill.  The Workbook is an important aid in that process. Solidly grounded in contemporary management science, it offers very significant and profound contributions to leaders’ understandings of uniqueness, capability, coherence, value and the value-stream. If you want to understand what a healthy business is and how to bring it to sustainable profitability, read this book.
Value Frame Strategy: the Creation of Unique Value is a companion-book to the Stellar Value Frame Workbook. It covers the theoretical approach and rationale that lies behind the twelve Value Frame Stellar domains of value-creation capability, giving a clear overview of why and how the Stellar business Value Frame works coherently and co-creatively.

Sentience: Essays on the Value Frame and the Co-Creation of Unique Value is a compilation of self-contained writings on the Value Frame over the period 2009-2012, describing the ideas and various practices of the Value Frame as the authors’ understandings of the Value Frame developed. The essays lead on to the role of the Value Frame within the current environment of extreme competition and complexity, the emergence of sentient companies, and the leadership of shared core purpose and process within co-creative stakeholder coherence.
