A veteran executive turned author and business change management strategist, David Hurst’s first book was Crisis & Renewal: Meeting the Challenge of Organizational Change. His twenty-five year business career concluded during hard economic times, and the experience led him to formulate his nature-based theory of disruption as a stimulus for revitalization.
Crisis & Renewal was selected by Business Journal as one of the 10 best business books of 1996, and it has since been translated into five languages. In it, Hurst shows how businesses can renew themselves by learning from natural systems, and he explains how in the process they will develop a more sustainable relationship with the natural world.
He also authored Learning from the Links: Mastering Management Using Lessons from Golf and co-edited Building the Strategically-Responsive Organization for John Wiley and Sons. His articles appear in the Financial Times, Business Quarterly, Harvard Business Review, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, and elsewhere, and are frequently cited and anthologized. He is a Contributing Editor for Strategy+Business.
Hurst is a Research Fellow at the National Centre for Management Research and Development at the Ivey School of Business in Toronto, and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, where his work forms part of the curriculum.
He speaks on leading change in large business organizations as well as about how continuous renewal can enable rapid progress in developing a sustainable relationship with the planet.
