This third edition of Competing Values Leadership serves as the key source for understanding and using the Competing Values Framework, one of the most widely used and highly cited frameworks in the world for understanding human behavior, leadership, and organizations. The authors of the framework, who have been at the foundation of developing, applying, and studying this framework for more than four decades, explain how it helps foster successful leadership, innovation, culture change, financial performance, organizational effectiveness, and value creation.

In addition to explaining why the Competing Values Framework is among the most important frameworks in the history of business, this edition addresses some criticisms of the framework and provides empirical evidence for its validity, reliability, and usefulness. The authors also provide practical tools and actions that can assist any organization in improving its performance.

Both academics and business leaders will find it to be an illuminating and useful tool and reference. It has also proven to be a valuable resource in executive education programs.
