Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the must-have book for leaders in business, organizations and government who are scrambling to get a grip on sustainability while improving performance in the era of climate change.Renowned business and sustainability consultant Alan AtKisson distils decades of wisdom and experience into this highly readable and motivational work. Covering theory and practice, obstacles and opportunities, case studies and poignant personal anecdotes, The ISIS Agreement draws the reader ever deeper into a global 'conspiracy of hope.'The core of the book is AtKisson's potent Accelerator, adopted for use in dozens of countries by business, governments, and organizations such as UNEP. A comprehensive toolkit that helps integrate sustainability into organizations, initiatives and plans, it can be used by any group, organization, business, community or region, in virtually any context. Central to the Accelerator is the potent ISIS (Indicators, Systems, Innovation, Strategy) method that teaches leaders how to create a whole-systems view of their organization, to identify and understand blockages and opportunities, and to leverage the potential for innovative change that adds value and accelerates progress towards sustainability.

Synopsis:

ISIS-Indicators, Systems, Innovation, Strategy-is a potent method for creating a whole-systems view, strategizing successfully for innovative change and accelerating progress towards sustainability. ISIS is an approach that builds on fifteen years of successful practice, with case studies from around the world, and easy-to-use training and planning tools that translate theory into practice in a way that provides both practical advice and inspiration.Like Believing Cassandra, this book is essential, transformative reading for leaders in business, organizations, and government, and professionals of all description in all sectors who are working on whole systems change in pursuit of strategies for innovation, sustainability, and profitability, as well as students in business and management.
