Lissack and Roos demonstrate in a down-to-earth and practical way that mastering the complexity through finding, nurturing and communicating coherence are the critical tasks for today's managers and executives. With rich examples of how today's top companies - AOL, Southwest Airlines and Visa among others - have rejected traditional management practices to create the new organizational community of the future, they offer a five-step a<p><p>.
