This book is born of more than 35 years’ experience working with organisations that want to do better and to be better. It is unashamedly a practitioner’s view – a view from the Australian business trenches, with a focus on what we can and should do to enhance business and elevate national prosperity.

Kehoe’s is a critical eye. He points to the lessons we have not learned about transformation and change in our approach to business and growing prosperity and worries about the future if these lessons remain unlearned.

As he says, in Australia we have a focus on sport and a Commission to help drive our success there; what about a Prosperity Commission? The Productivity Commission has a role to play, but he urges the development of a Prosperity Commission with independence from Government that has a broad ranging brief to identify what is required to create growth and prosperity in a disrupted economic era.

Throughout Kehoe’s work there are gems of insight and opinion, challenge and an invitation to readers to engage in the debate about how we can all do better and be better – as business, government and as a nation.

This is a worthwhile read for anyone interested in business and prosperity, and particularly insightful for practitioners who will receive a glimpse of what a successful career assisting others with organisational transformation and change looks like and what such work can achieve.
