Welcome to the war against bureaucracy

This website is about how bureaucracy develops and how you can fight it. It is a companion to the book "The Second Cycle - Winning the War against Bureaucracy" and includes some of the tools you need to fight bureaucracy in your own organization - public or private. You can read the weblog, participate in discussions with colleagues around the world, as well as perform an easy test of your own organizational health.

What is it all about?

You're growing fast. You're profitable. They're writing great things about you in the business press. But, just beneath the surface, are you incubating the seeds of disaster? It's happened over and over again, in one industry after another, to companies ranging from IBM to Upjohn. In this book, Lars Kolind helps you uncover the earliest signs of trouble - and ignite a powerful new growth cycle. Drawing upon his experience turning around Oticon, the world's top manufacturer of hearing aids, Kolind introduces a comprehensive toolbox for revitalizing mature organizations: tools for creating consensus around change, using staff more effectively, promoting innovation, and much more. Finally, he applies his tools to a wide range of organizations, including the U.S. auto industry. The result: specific, practical advice you can adapt to galvanize your organization, no matter how well you're doing today.
