Agility. Donald Sull’s new book is titled, The Upside of Turbulence: Seizing Opportunity in an Uncertain World. Sull makes a great case for building an organization that’s agile enough to exploit opportunities rapidly, and one that can absorb the inevitable setbacks that face every organization. The style of writing reflects Sull’s current job as a professor at London Business School. The content reflects both the case approach he learned at Harvard, and the clear communication and analytic approach he learned at McKinsey and in doing leveraged buyouts with Clayton & Dubilier. The result: a readable presentation, packed with cases and examples that illustrate his points clearly. The Upside of Turbulence provides interesting reading to general managers, and will be of particular interest to any manager involved in strategy, innovation, or development.
