Two new manuals have now been posted on the website.
Both are in the Developing Your Organisation series.
Team Development in Organisations is a comprehensive resource for anyone who is or has been a member of a team.
It highlights the differences between groups and teams, giving considerable insight into the particular features of teams and provides a number of valuable worksheets for actively engaging with the issues and concepts raised.
There is an in-depth exploration of team development, facilitating a team development process, individual and group needs and issues upon joining a new or existing team, a team development process, dynamics of teams relating to each other, and the impact of teams and team development upon the organisation as a whole.
The Development of Strategy and Strategic Thinking in Organisations is a practical manual for those who have to come to grips with planning, strategy and thinking about what they have to do in relation to other groups in an organisation.
It outlines the questions, concepts and issues that are present for those who are endeavouring to manage organisations in times of the almost constant change and chaos of the 21st century workplace.
It explores the necessity for developing a strategy for the continued survival of organisations; the need for people to become awake to what is going on – and what is not; and the requirement for an increase in awareness on individual, team and organisational levels.
The first chapters of both manuals can be downloaded for a free sample of what they contain.
It is now also possible to download the first chapters of two Oasis Press books: Learning for Tomorrow and Working Relationships for the 21st Century: A Guide to Authentic Collaboration.
