A guide to how organizations must change management practices to boost agility within new business models based around the idea of "sharing."

Uber, Airbnb, Skype, Alibaba, Google, Netflix, and WeChat (China's answer to Whatsapp) are all based on the sharing of information, assets, and human capital, and a new and dynamic economy is already emerging.

Share presents a new opportunity for corporations to reinvent management practices to boost agility in an environment of "sharing." This book will help companies to thrive through the reshaping of their standard models of hierarchy, power and bureaucracy, and the assumed rules of engagement, offering a holistic approach to change, with practical techniques, examples, and case studies drawn from the authors' experience in helping companies to gain competitive advantage.

Traditional consumer and industrial models of western capitalism are having to adapt to the "sharing" concept, but few traditional organizations seem to understand the implications of the "share" mindset for how they operate and compete. The workforce of the future is growing up in a networked age with completely different attitudes towards "sharing," and want flexibility and greater control over their lives--where and how they work, and what and how they buy.
