Brightline Publishes New Books to Support Leaders on Understanding and Delivering Transformation Initiatives

Share

Leaders from around the globe are dealing with two major roadblocks to be successful in implementing their vision, deliver sustainable growth and deal with the most complex issues of our society. Research shows that only 1 in 10 organizations are able to implement all their strategic initiatives, and more impressive, when it comes to transformation, 70% of the transformation initiatives are failing. Forbes cites a $900 million worth of waste in 2018 alone.

"Transformation efforts today are more likely to fail than succeed. We realized that there is a lot more we can do in the area of strategic transformation," said Sunil Prashara, President and CEO of Project Management Institute.

Brightline™, a Project Management Institute (PMI) initiative, officially released this week two new books at the Thinkers50 Gala Award and Global Peter Drucker Forum: The Transformation Playbook and Characterizing the Gap between Strategy and Implementation.

The Transformation Playbook, the third in a series of books produced in partnership with Thinkers50, discusses practices and examples of organizational transformation. As with the first two books in the series – Strategy@Work and The Chief Strategy Officer Playbook – Brightline gathered insights from an array of practitioners and thinkers. The articles contained in the book are truly a global and inspirational mix of insights and practical recommendations to help leaders navigate the complexities of transformation initiatives.

Characterizing the Gap Between Strategy and Implementation is the result of a symposium at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on 30 April and 1 May 2018, hosted by the MIT System Design and Management (SDM) and sponsored by the Brightline Initiative. Researchers from around the world met to understand and discuss what the “gap” between strategy and implementation is, including theory, applied research and cases. This book represents a record of some of these discussion, insights and practical recommendations to help leaders understand and close the strategy implementation gap.

Dole Food Company today shared the company’s most recent update on its efforts to combat Fusarium Tropical Race 4 (TR4), a plant disease that poses an existential threat to bananas, a major staple crop for much of the world. Since the discovery of TR4 in northern Colombia one year ago, Dole swiftly ramped-up its TR4 response plan, implementing site-specific TR4 prevention activities throughout Latin America in coordination with local authorities and international experts to contain and prevent spread. A three-year containment program was immediately implemented in 2019 to ensure biosecurity protocols in every Dole banana farm, as well as those of Dole’s independent suppliers. Those protocols build upon best practices implemented in the banana producing countries where the disease has been successfully contained and are continually reviewed and strengthened per site—based upon the farm layout and location—to maximize the effectiveness of the risk-based mitigation plan. Dole also continu
